The Hon'ble CIC in a catena of orders has held that land records are not personal information. Land records, describing boundaries, ownership and extent of possession, are public records which cannot be treated as personal information. It has been further held that aid records with names of different owners giving details of boundaries, and the extent of land owned or possessed by the public authority, is neither private information nor third party information. The land is open and transaction of change of ownership of a particular piece of land is registered with Registrar for being recorded as admissible evidence of that ownership for public to know.

It is the duty of the revenue department to make all updated land records open for scrutiny of the people. Transparency is the only way by which corruption can be prevented. Transparency of the land records is mandated as per Section 4(1)(B) of the RTI Act and Public Records Act, 1993.

You can file RTI to obtain information regarding the document related to transfer of land and the supporting document based on with land has been transferred.
