Registration of land to be made easy

Registration of land to be made easy

Reddy told reporters at Harapanahalli on Monday that several features to check corruption and delay in registration process have been incorporated in the new system.

Taking cue from the success of the project implemented in eight offices of the registrar in Bangalore Urban district, the department decided to extend it across the State.

“Most of the land records in the sub-registrar offices and the Department of Land Survey have turned brittle. To secure the documents and simplify the process of documentation a Rs 250-crore project has been chalked out. It’s being implemented on a pilot basis in the Mysore division,” he said.

The Minister also said that information on transfer of khata and other documents would be sent through SMS to the owners’ cellphones.


Reddy said appointments have been made for 30 posts of sub-registrars and 2,000 of the 2,500 vacant posts of village accountants.  A notification on recruitment for the remaining 500 posts has been issued. 

 Of the 2,500 posts of surveyors, 400 have been filled and the rest would be recruited through a common entrance test, Reddy said.

Formation of taluks

As there were differences among the four committees over the formation of new taluks, a sub-committee under his chairmanship has been constituted.

The committees have recommended formation of 38-40 new taluks and eight sub-divisions, he said.
