DELHI : In a major revamp of existing property registration system, Delhi Government will put in place a transparent mechanism by end of the year under which people will be able to access hassle-free services in all 13 sub-registrar offices without any jurisdictional issue.

The aim of the ambitious project – first of its kind in the country – is to offer people a tout-free and seamless property registration experience through a highly secured

online platform, which will replace the six-decade-old current system.

Under the new mechanism, people from any area of the city will be able to get their properties registered in any one of the 13 sub-registrar offices and they will even be able to check genuineness of the properties as well as ownership details and past transactions.

Admitting that there was corruption in the existing system, Urban Development and Revenue Minister Arvinder Singh Lovely said the government is determined to rid it of lacunae and the new mechanism will offer "great relief" to people who often faced lot of hardships in getting their properties registered.

As per existing system, people can get their properties registered based on jurisdiction of the sub-registrar office.

"It will be a major systemic change. We are working hard to out in place a transparent system under which people will be offered a hassle-free experience. The touts will not have any place in the new system," Lovely said.

He said all the 13 sub-registrar offices will be linked through an online portal through which people will also be able to check ownership details and past transaction of properties.

The online portal will have an online fee calculator besides having details about stamp duties and other required documents for property registration.

Under the new system, a limited number of people only will be given appointment for meeting revenue department officials and entry of unauthorised persons will be strictly restricted.

Explaining the new system, the Minister said people will be able to apply for registration of their properties by filling a form online following which they will be given appointment number, date and time for coming to the sub-registrar office of their choice.

"I admit there is corruption in the existing system. That is why we are making very significant systemic changes to put in place a transparent and people-friendly mechanism where there will be no room for touts," Lovely, who is credited with bringing IT-application in transfer, postings, evaluation of performance for teachers when he was Education Minister, said.

"I am determined to rid the system of corruption and lacunae.

The system we are bringing will offer great relief to people who often faced lot of hardships in getting their properties registered," he said.

The government has already introduced the new system of property registration in sub-registrar offices in Nangloi, Geeta Colony, Janakpuri, Libaspur, Majri and Bhalswa and by December, the facility will be made available in all the 13 sub-registrar offices.

"Once the online registration system is made available in all 13 sub-registrar offices, then people from any area of the city will be able to apply for registration of properties in any of the sub-registrar offices," said Lovely.

He said the system will help the government plug revenue leakages as proper audit trail and cross verification of transaction would be ensured.

"We are aiming at totally transforming the existing system into a seamless system where people will be able to get their property registered in a very nice environment," said Lovely.

The government has already significantly improved infrastructure in six sub-registrar offices and gave them a very swanky look.

As part of reform initiative, the government last year had launched electronic-stamping facility to completely do away with stamp paper of all denominations.
