Property registration softwares integrated

The Stamps and Registration Department has directed all sub-registrars to verify details of gramathana sites (plots located in the jurisdiction of panchayats) on e-swatthu software before registering the properties.

The department has, in a recent circular, said that Kaveri (Karnataka Valuation and e-Registration) software and e-swatthu, a software developed by the Rural Development and Panchayat Raj (RDPR) department to digitise all documents pertaining to properties in panchayat limits, have been integrated. The sub-registrars should, therefore, verify all details of gramathana sites before registration.

If a property is not located in e-swatthu, sub-registrars should issue an endorsement to that effect. Disciplinary action will be initiated against those who do not follow the procedure, the department has warned in the circular.

The government has already made it mandatory to submit only computer-generated forms 9 and 11-a or 11-b (also called khata documents) at the time of property transaction in panchayat areas.

Handwritten documents are not accepted by the sub-registrars. While form 11-a is for plots formed without violation, 11-b is for those with minor violations. 

This has been done to prevent fraudulent transactions, especially on the outskirts of major cities like Bangalore.
