In recent years, the most cutting edges and promising technology emerged is Blockchain. It has huge potential to impact various industries. The append-only distributed ledger technology (DLT) and the consensus mechanism of Blockchain can also change the dimension of E-Governance. The Electronic Property Record (EPR) systems of government have challenges like data security, integrity, secure storage of data and automated service delivery. In this paper, we discuss how Smart Contract based Blockchain technology can effectively be used to address the challenges of EPR System over the existing available systems. We propose a Smart Contract based permissioned blockchain framework which is an innovative approach, especially in the Electronic Property Registration domain of E-Governance in India. The objective of our proposed framework is firstly to implement Smart Contract solving the security problems like confidentiality, integrity, authentication, and secondly to ensure secure storage of electronic records by defining access rules for the stakeholders of the proposed framework. Moreover, we address the issues of single-point-of-failure, data inter-operability between the organizations involved for sharing and verification of property information among various stakeholders.
