Additionally, physical offices have been built up for Bhoomi at Gram Panchayats throughout the state's Taluks. A landowner or citizen may visit the Bhoomi office buildings and submit the required paperwork to apply for an RTC. In these locations, they can also examine the progress of applications for land disputes and MRs.
