Hyderabad: Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao, on 19 December, directed that the registration of non-agricultural properties will be taken up in all sub-registrar offices from 21 December without insisting on advance slot booking and using card system.
He has directed the stamps and registrations department officials to take necessary action and ensure smooth and speedy conduct of registrations following due procedures and without causing any inconvenience to people.
A major initiative regarding registration of non-agricultural properties was introduced on 11 December that aims to bring in increased transparency and online advance slot booking.
The registrations of non-agricultural transactions commenced on 14 December and so far, 2,599 slots have been booked and 1,760 registrations completed, according to a press release issued by the Chief Minister's Office. Slot booking facility is available for 23 different types of transactions like sale, mortgage, gift, development agreement, and GPA and also five other services are ready for rollout, it said.
However, a Telangana High Court order dated 17 December has stayed mandatory slot booking facility for registrations, while permitting registrations without insistence on Aadhar details. In view of the HC order, the slot booking facility for non-agricultural registrations have been kept in abeyance for the time being, the statement said, adding registrations in respect of the slots already booked for 19 December and thereafter will be taken up on the date and time as per the slots already booked.
To obviate any hardship and inconvenience to the people, KCR has now directed that registrations of non-agricultural properties be taken up in all sub-registrar offices from 21 December.
