Assuring that all long-standing issues of ownership rights of non-agricultural properties would be sorted out, the minister said awareness had to be created among citizens regarding the Dharani portal and the exercise being taken up by the government.
Due to different reasons, registrations and title-related issues regarding some properties in a few places have been held up, KTR said, adding the state will address all such issues.
The state government has launched an exercise so that people can voluntarily register details pertaining to non-agricultural properties on the Dharani website. KTR assured complete transparency in the process and said there would be no scope for middlemen or agents and people will not have to pay a single rupee.
Regarding the upcoming Hyderabad, Ranga Reddy, and Mahabubnagar graduates MLC elections enrollment from 1 October, the minister appealed to all the corporators and public representatives to enroll their names in the voters' list and encourage the graduates also to enroll.
All efforts should be made to improve the poll percentage in Hyderabad for MLC elections by enrolling all graduates as voters, he told the corporators.
