Snapper Future Tech: Land Records and Registration Using Blockchain
On October 10, 2017, the co-founders of Snapper Future Tech Private Limited (Snapper) were discussing the solutions they had proposed at a recent blockchain business conference. Snapper's initiative envisaged digital solutions for smooth land registration, adding transparency, accountability, and good governance at every stage of the process. Snapper had developed a proof of concept for land records on a private blockchain in a cloud-based environment. Its live demonstration of the proposal was well received by the conference attendees; the challenge was whether the government would consider the solution and engage on a long-term basis with the company for blockchain solutions in land registrations. Would Snapper's journey be acknowledged in the annals of the country's digital revolution? Poonam Garg and Rashmi Kumar Aggarwal are affiliated with Institute of Management Technology, Ghaziabad.
