He records the facts regarding crops grown, soil conservation, cultivation and capacity of the cultivator. This register is considered important as it acts a master file for the preparation of various agricultural returns and forecasts.
The software known as Himbhoomi starts from the Shajra Nasb data entry, where each individual is assigned a unique code. Then the Jamabandi details are stored against each individual. Similarly when an individual concerned does any transaction then his/her detail is updated automatically with the help of mutation module. The modus operandi of data entry is that only one master Jamabandi (applicable at that time) is entered and then after wards only the changes are entered through the mutation module.
