The Digital India is a programme of the Government of India with a vision to transform India into a digitally empowered society and knowledge economy. Digital land record of villages is one of the important components of information system which plays a vital role in making this type of society Land record system is primarily managed manually in the country using registers and cadastral maps in the form of papers, clothes which are very rough, tempered, torn and in a bad condition. Thus, the record keeping and updation of the village level information is a big challenge. Preserving, updating and retrieving these records needs integration of the information in a single framework. This paper presents the development of village level geospatial framework which highlights the three growth areas among nine pillars of Digital India. It encapsulates the digitization, geodatabase preparation, topology, and geospatial framework development using revenue (Khasara) maps, Google earth imagery data and GIS technology.
