The Pune Bar Association (PBA) and Conveyancing Practitioners Association (CPA) on Tuesday submitted a memorandum to the Inspector General Stamps and Registration (IGR) highlighting the problems arising due to installation of software iSarita at sub-registrar offices in the state.
To register their protest,PBA organised a march from divisional joint registrar office to IGR on Tuesday. They demanded temporary halt to iSarita software to increase the data entry at sub-registrar offices.
The memorandum states that only 20-25 documents are being registered in a day in the city as compared to 55-65 earlier.
There are complaints that names when entered in English show errors after being translated into Marathi. Also,when a consumer chooses to register documents at one office,he is unable to choose another office for convenience, the memorandum states.
The capacity of the new software is not able to take the load of documents coming for registration at these offices. The problem is not only in Pune,but other parts of the state too, said advocate Shivraj Kadam,vice-president of Pune Bar Association (PBA).
This can result in huge loss to state exchequer, said Kadam. The memorandum mentioned at least a dozen problems being faced while registering documents through iSarita software.
