This is a techincal paper by Department of Land Resources, GoI. At present land records databases which are being maintained in various states are following state specific set of codes for different attributes like crop, soil, land use, irrigation, season, area unit and location. The Land Records Information Systems Division of National Informatics Centre, New Delhi has initiated an exercise to standardize the coding scheme for different entities in the land records database exclusively for Data warehousing and Mining purposes for central/state datacentres. 

This report shows an attempt is being made to formulate a Uniform Coding Scheme/Standards, which shall be followed by all the states to facilitate collaboration and interoperability. This may facilitate multipurpose information and knowledge exchange within Land Resource domain as well as collaboration with other national level databases. All attributes for National Level Codification will be described in the English language to begin with. The national level data repository will be used for management information systems and planning

The Indus Valley civilization, one of the world's oldest, flourished during the 3rd and 2nd millennia B.C. and extended into northwestern India. Aryan tribes from the northwest infiltrated the Indian subcontinent about 1500 B.C.; their merger with the earlier Dravidian inhabitants created the classical Indian culture. The Maurya Empire of the 4th and 3rd centuries B.C. - which reached its zenith under ASHOKA - united much of South Asia. The Golden Age ushered in by the Gupta dynasty (4th to 6th centuries A.D.) saw a flowering of Indian science, art, and culture.
