A few years ago, as a pilot project, Deputy Inspector General, Stamps and Registration took up the arduous task of collecting all old documents in Hyderabad to digitize them.
The department has digitized close to about 5000 volumes, amounting to whopping about three and half lakhs above documents in Hyderabad. By the success of the digitization project, the department is to begin recording all old land transactions in Telangana.
The documents of the ten districts will be digitized and protected from vagaries of time from the date back from 1800s during the Nizam's era of the erstwhile Hyderabad State.
As the paper and ink are destructible and Courts seeking the department help to validate old documents, digitization has become inevitable says the department head.
