Delhi Government has decided to put in place a transparent mechanism by end of the year under which people will be able to access hassle-free services in all 13 sub-registrar offices without any jurisdictional issue.

The aim of the ambitious project -first of its kind in the country is to offer people a tout-free and seamless property registration experience through a highly secured online platform, which will replace the six-decade-old current system.

Under the new mechanism, people from any area of the city will be able to get their properties registered in any one of the 13 sub-registrar offices and they will even be able to check genuineness of the properties as well as ownership details and past transactions.

Admitting that there was corruption in the existing system, Urban Development and Revenue Minister Arvinder Singh Lovely said the government is determined to rid it of lacunae and the new mechanism will offer "great relief" to people who often faced lot of hardship in getting their properties registered.

As per existing system, people can get their properties registered based on jurisdiction of the sub-registrar office.

"It will be a major systemic change. We are working hard to out in place a transparent system under which people will be offered a hassle-free experience. The touts will not have any place in the new system," Lovely told the news agency.

He said all the 13 sub-registrar offices will be linked through an online portal through which people will also be able to check ownership details and past transaction of properties.

The online portal will have an online fee calculator besides details about stamp duties and other required documents for property registration. (ANI)
