It will keep it digitized.
The time has been proposed by the Chief Secretary Anup Chandra Pandey to develop the new blockchain system in next 6 months.

As the major population depends on agriculture so there are many lands to keep records of. So all the land registration will migrate to blockchain technology for an easy operation which would be transparent, reliable and people will trust it.
Around 67% of the population is there in the rural parts of Uttar Pradesh as a result the land documents becomes a difficult job to maintain, also the manual process is time taking and lengthy which requires a lot of effort that is why blockchain comes into picture where it can solve all the problems related to land documents and it will make all the documents paperless.
Corruption is one of the major problems which people are facing and due to the blockchain, it will try solving and fight the corruption.
