A government spokesperson said the novel idea aimed at resolving pending land disputes in rural areas with the promise of "Aapki zameen, aapka adhikar, sabko mile apna uttaradhikar".

"The Varasat campaign is being conducted in five stages with a battery of 24,000 lekhpals and 2,700 revenue inspectors of revenue department who are visiting villages to gather information and dispose of complaints," the spokesman said.
