Assam: Unique Land Parcel Identification Number

On 11th March Union minister of rural development and Panchayati raj, Giriraj Singh launched Unique Land Parcel Identification Number (ULPIN) in Assam.


  • Unique Land Parcel Identification Number (ULIPN) project was launched in Assam on a pilot basis.
  • Under this project, every land parcel in Assam will have a 14-digit alphanumeric geospatial unique identification number (UIN). Thus, ULPIN will act as an “adhaar for land”.
  • The first step in this process is the survey of non-cadastral villages and a re-survey of all cadastral villages.
  • The next step is end-to-end integration of digitalized land records and maps, which will pave the way for the generation of ULPIN for the land parcel.
  • ULPIN project will pave the way towards the implementation of conclusive titling and will help in the quick resolution of the land disputes in the state.
