E-registration of property launched

BHUBANESWAR: Ushering in a new era of property deal, the State government on Monday launched its much-awaited project “e-registration” which would enable people to get a deed registration in less than an hour.

Moreover, encumbrance certificate and certified copies of deeds will be made available over the counter. As per the present process the time taken for the registration is about 30 to 45 days with couple of visits by the citizens.

Inaugurating e-registration system which is named as ‘e-dharani’, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik said “e-registration will be taken up throughout the State at all the 177 registration offices. The Registration Process has been re-engineered to make it faster, simpler, accurate and error-free.”

“Usage of the biometric device and other security features will be helpful to authenticate the executants, claimants and identifiers thus reducing the chance of unauthorized resale or double registration. Besides automation of all the 64 types of deeds, the registration offices have been given a modern look by improving the physical set up as well as workflow inside the office,” Mr. Patnaik said.

The Chief Minister said that the new system would have vital checks in sale and purchase involving land belonging to Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes to ensure proper monitoring of land transfer in such cases.

Through this project, the revenue department would ensure delivery of property registration related services in a hassle-free environment, he added.

Speaking on the occasion, Revenue and Disaster Management Minister Surya Narayan Patro said benchmark valuation for each and every plot of the State had been captured and valuation would be open to citizens.

If the project turned out to be successful, the e-governance initiative would be extended to Tehesil level, Mr. Patro said. According Information and Technology department sources, the whole process of project roll out would be completed within one month.

In the next few years, the project would focus on adding more number of services such as delivery of encumbrance certificate online and payment of fees through payment gateways. “Any time anywhere registration” will also be introduced in due course of time. GIS mapping of plots will be available in benchmark valuation. According to Revenue Department, computerization and updating of land records would be instrumental in further improving the service delivery and enhance efficiency. Among others IT Secretary P. K Mohapatra, Revenue and Disaster Management Secretary, R. K. Sharma, Inspector General of Registration CTM Suguna and Chief Executive Officer of IL&FS; Dinesh Tyagi spoke on the occasion.
