Revenue Minister Karuna­kara Reddy said here on Friday that the citizen-friendly system would be launched in five sub-registrar’s offices in Bangalore on a pilot basis on August 15.

The department plans to extend the new system to all sub-registrar’s offices in the State by December-end. Once that is done, the online integration of all 203 sub-registrar offices will enable citizens to buy or sell properties anywhere in the State.

Presently, one has to register a property only in the respective jurisdictional sub-registrar office.

Besides, the much-anticipated Urban Property Ownership Records (UPOR) project, or the city survey, will be launched in Bangalore shortly. The project envisages a detailed survey of all municipal properties and an urban property record registry will be set up.

Property cards, will be issued to all genuine owners once the project is implemented.
The UPOR is presently being implemented in five towns of Mysore, Shimoga, Bellary, Hubli-Dharwad and Mangalore.

“The project is likely to take a few more months before being introduced in the capital. Having been introduced for the first time in the country, the UPOR initative will be tried and tested in smaller cities before being introduced in the capital,” the minister said.
Revenue Department Secretary Rajeev Chawla said in Bangalore that 200 surveyors would be deployed for the city under a public private partnership model and private parties  would extend their support with logistics, said Chawla.

This apart, Reddy also launched an upgraded version of award-winning Bhoomi project. Under the system, the Bhoomi (computerised land records or RTC) and the Kaveri (regisistration system) projects have been integrated. As soon as a piece of agricultural land is registered, it will get uploaded in the Bhoomi.

As a result, the mutation process will automatically begin, and the purchaser of the property will get khatha in a month’s time, the minister said.

Minister proposes land audit

Revenue Minister Karun­a­kara Reddy on Friday said the State government was contemplating a land audit in the State.

Reddy said the audit would reform the way land is acquired for industrial purpose. “This will ensure innocent farmers do not lose their land without any reason. It is time for us to audit land for setting up compact industries, be it steel or any other project, in the State,” he said.
