In a major decision that can end the alleged corruption by talathis in issuance of the 7×12 extracts (Record of Land Rights) to citizens, the district collectorate on Wednesday directed all its tehsil offices to stop issuing hand-written land record documents, which are issued by talathis, and only issue computerised certificate. In local parlance, it is called, "Saat bara Utara."
