About the Section

    The Printing Section, erstwhile known as Cartography Division was a part and parcel of the All India Soil and Land Use Survey, presently known as Soil and Land Use Survey of India (SLUSI), established in the premises of Soil Science Division, IARI, Pusa Campus, New Delhi in 1956.

    In 1969, the All India Soil and Land Use Survey was divided into two separate organizations and Cartography Division was transferred with National Bureau of Soil Survey and Land Use Planning. In 1986, it was named as Printing Section due to the formation of Cartography Section at Nagpur. Since 1986 Printing Section is working as an independent unit under the direct control of Headquarters Nagpur.
