PCMC News: Online Property Registration Gets Strong Response

The Hinjewadi sub-registrar’s office became the first office in the state to roll out the online property registration programme, wherein property buyers could access their mutation entry online. With 64 online registrations in the pilot project, the land records department is planning to replicate the process across the entire state.
Settlement commissioner and director of land records, Dr Shailesh Kumar Sharma, said that the online mutation entry started on July 23 and in a month’s time they have received an overwhelming response.
The idea behind developing such a system was to ensure better transparency and accountability. The system monitors each officer closely and they will be assessed on the time taken for issuing the notices and updating the records. The software has been provided by National Informatics Centre (NIC).
The Hinjewadi and Paud offices that fall under the Mulshi taluka were covered in the trial run. The online mutation entry programme will enable property buyers to take a printout of their registration details, 7/12 extracts and property cards even from home, said the official.
The trial run saw the documents registered at the sub-registrar office forwarded to the tehsildar office where the officer receives an SMS mentioning the registration number. The notice has to be issued the moment they get the document.
Within 15 days the document gets uploaded provided there is no dispute. In case of disputed property, the entry goes into the dispute register to be cleared within three months. If there is no dispute, the buyer can get to see the registration details uploaded on http://mahabhulekh.mumbai.nic within fifteen days.
