In this Dec. 5, 2012 photo, a man, right, waits to get a copy of a land record at Bhoomi, a program that digitized Karnataka state's 20 million handwritten land records, kiosk in Tumkur 70 Kilometers (43 miles) from Bangalore, India. For years, Karnataka's land records were a quagmire of disputed, forged documents maintained by thousands of tyrannical bureaucrats who demanded bribes to do their jobs. In 2002, there were hopes that this was about to change. (AP Photo/Aijaz Rahi)
