The office of State Inspector General of Registration and Controller of Stamps (IGR) has planned elaborate steps to increase e-registrations and aimed to scale it up by 50 per cent. The registrations have surpassed it by touching 60 per cent this year.
Officials said that citizens are finding the e-registration process easy as they don’t have to visit the Sub Registrar Office. They added while it has picked up in Pune, they want the same to happen in other key cities too.
In e-registration, citizens can prepare their documents online using online templates provided by the department and make payment of stamp duties and registration fees online. Admission and identification of parties is done automatically by comparing Unique Identification Number (UID) details.
The department has appointed 80 authorised service providers for e-registrations besides 150 maha-e-seva kendras to facilitate online registration of documents.
The department had also involved many key builders for e-registration for the first agreements of sale between developers and buyers.
