The e-Dhara Society was established within the Department of Revenue with its core mission being to operate as an autonomous and independent organization at the state level. Its primary responsibility is to handle revenue-related tasks for both the Central and state governments.
Furthermore, this state-level society is actively involved in enhancing the capabilities of district-level e-Dhara societies and is prepared to undertake e-governance projects assigned by the government or other organizations in the future.

During the meeting, it was disclosed that over 62 lakh authorized service copies are issued each month through e-Dhara, directly benefiting the state’s farmers. These services include documents like village samples 7/12, and 8-A, as well as digitally signed title deeds with QR codes.
Additionally, over one and a half lakh applications are received each month through direct contact with e-Dhara centers for making alterations to their property rights, such as mutation entries. Furthermore, the monthly count of automatic mutations processed through the online platform exceeds fifty thousand.
The meeting also featured information about the monthly usage by over one crore citizens who benefit from accessing revenue records online via the internet.
