Bhu-Aadhar : Unique Land Parcel Identification Number (ULPIN)

    Unique Land Parcel Identification Number (ULPIN) is part of the Digital India Land Records Modernization Programme (DILRMP). It is a 14-digit identification number accorded to a land parcel based on the longitude and latitude coordinates of the land parcel and depends on detailed surveys and geo-referenced cadastral maps. ULPIN is a Single, Authoritative Source of Truth for information on any parcel of land or property to provide Integrated Land Services to the citizens as well as all stakeholders. The Unique Land Parcel Identification Number (ULPIN) system is based on international standard which complies, with Electronic Commerce Code Management Association (ECCMA) standard and Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standard.

    Generation of ULPIN
    1. There is a formula to generate and assign ECCMA (Electronic Commerce Code Management Association) Standard prescribed 14 digit Unique ID “Property Natural Identifier Unit” (PNIU) using the parcel Geo Referenced coordinate of vertices
    2. This computationally generated Unique ID would be organically dependent on Parcel vertices expressed in Lat/Long coordinates “property Natural Identifier Lot” (PNIL) and Unique ID (PNIU) would spatially be pointing to the surface of the parcel.
    1. Unique Land Parcel Identification Number (ULPIN) is a unique alphanumeric code assigned to each individual land parcel to provide a standardized and unambiguous identification system.
    2. It serves as a crucial tool for land administration, property management, and real estate transactions.
    3. ULPIN is designed to streamline the process of identifying and tracking land parcels, thereby enhancing transparency, efficiency, and accuracy in land-related activities.
    4. Proper land statistics and land accounting through ULPIN will help develop land banks. It will lead towards the Integrated Land Information Management System (ILIMS).
    5. ULPIN may include ownership details of the plot besides its size and longitudinal and latitudinal details.
    6. This would facilitate real estate transactions; help resolve property taxation issues and improve disaster planning and response efforts.
    7. It would be enabler for deciding entitlement of beneficiaries of schemes that are based on quantum of land possessed and also reduces boundary disputes.
    8. ULPIN would prove an important milestone for furtherance of Geospatial Policy 2022 of the Government

    ULPIN has, so far, has been rolled out in 29 States viz. Andhra Pradesh, Jharkhand, Goa, Bihar, Odisha, Sikkim, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Haryana, Tripura, Chhattisgarh, Jammu & Kashmir, Assam, Madhya Pradesh, Nagaland, Mizoram, Tamil Nadu, Punjab, Dadra and Nagar Haveli & Daman and Diu, Himachal Pradesh, West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Kerala, Ladakh, Chandigarh, Karnataka and NCT of Delhi. Further, Pilot testing of ULPIN has been done in 4 States / UTs- Puducherry, Telangana, Manipur and Andaman & Nicobar Island.
    Some States /UTs like Madhya Pradesh, Ladakh and J&K are also using ULPIN in SVAMITVA.
