Ranchi: Aadhaar will be mandatory as proof during land deals in Jharkhand from January 1 2014, an official release said on Tuesday. The decision was taken to bring in transparency in the sale/purchase of land and prevention of registering the same land more than once, the release said quoting Chief Secretary RS Sharma.

Now onwards land could be registered showing Aadhaar or other relevant documents, but from January 1, 2014 Aadhaar alone would be taken as proof in land deals, the release said in Ranchi. Along with sellers and buyers of land, the witnesses should also produce Aadhaar.

The land registration department has been asked to follow the directive, the release said. The state has set December as deadline for Aadhaar enrollment for all the people in Jharkhand.
