This paper discusses Indonesia’s experience with establishing a uniform cadastral system in rural areas since the idea was first mooted in the early 19th century. Until 1961, a formal cadastre that identified, measured, registered and certified land titles existed only in urban areas. A cadastre for rural land did not start until after the 1960 Agrarian Law. Until then, the village-based land tax registers acted as a substitute cadastral register in areas subject to land tax.

To understand more about people’s perceptions of the security of property rights, in India and in the rest of the world, we launched a series of surveys. The first survey was carried out with 14,000 respondents in 14 states across India. We plan to do similar research in other countries, building up to a global survey that will reveal similarities and differences between societies when it comes to people’s perceptions of property rights.
