Property registration reform begins

Buyers and sellers of immovable properties in the jurisdiction of these offices can register the documents in any of the sub-registrar offices. For instance, a property in Malleswaram can be registered in Gandhinagar sub-registar office. Hitherto, property transaction registration was allowed only in the respective jurisdictional the sub-registrar office.

“We are launching the anywhere registration system at nine sub-registrar offices on experimental basis. It will be extended to entire Bangalore, covering all 43 sub-registrar offices, in a month's time,” Inspector General of Registration and Commissioner of Stamps B Shivappa said.

Sub-registrar offices coming under Gandhinagar sub division are: Gandhinagar, Malleswaram, Ganganagar, Kacharakanahalli, Yelahanka, Hebbal, Byatarayanapura, Jala and Hesaraghatta.

The department has inter-connected the sub-registrar office using new software to introduce the system. Details of a property registered in Malleswaram sub-registrar office can be accessed in other eight offices also. Once a property is registered, all details pertaining to the property will be uploaded to the main server. This will prevent double registration of properties, officials said.

Officials said details of disputed properties which are pending in courts have also been uploaded in the system. Such properties will not be registered.

Anywhere EC

The department is also launching the system to take a copy of Encumbrance Certificate (EC) of properties from anywhere in Bangalore. People can get a EC copy of any property in Bangalore from any of the 42 sub-registrar offices, officials said.
