Land bank distribution in India is a complex subject and with the family size reduction, the average land holding is going down. Maintenance of the land records in physical format is very difficult. There are thousands of court disputes for different land parcels and managing the same is becoming a complex task. The aim of the chapter is to design a conceptual framework with electronic landbank records in dematerialized form, so that they can be easily maintained and traded. Associated benefits of implementing such system are also discussed. Authors have used secondary data published in previous research work in the area of Geographical Information System (GIS) and business analytics to analyze the prospects of land bank dematerialization and its possible applications. The chapter focuses on the need of regulatory support and associated IT infrastructure to put the plan in action. If implemented, this change can help India to transform its land management process and will also enable to explore commercial utilization of agricultural land and urban land plots for planned development.
