Within 40 days, over 3.5 lakh mutation applications were processed due to the entry of non-agricultural properties in the Dharani portal.
Several of these requests have been pending over the years. Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) officials and applicants, in some cases after registration of properties at the Sub- Registrar's Office, did not showed any interest in transferring ownership rights to GHMC records. In December 2020 and January, the applications were cleared.
Mutation Applications Cleared in Dharani
One of the Banjara Hills residents mentioned that although mutation fees were paid at the time of registration of an apartment four years ago, GHMC records represent the name of their previous owners. Now his name was eventually shown in the records in January. As such, during this month he approached civic officials to prevent misunderstanding by entering his property information on the Dharani portal.
Sources indicate there was a lot of uncertainty since municipal officials were not clearing applications with mutations in order to prevent errors when enlisting properties in Dharani. GHMC officials informed that the process is underway and is running smoothly.
Property mutation was not stopped and the procedure is carried out in accordance with the standards. People with doubts can approach their GHMC circular office, said Serilingampally circle Gopala Krishna, GHMC valuation officer.
The 0.1% Mutation Fee is charged in favour of the Commissioner, GHMC, via the demand draft The property tax identification number (PTIN) will be created on behalf of the new owners only after the property has been mutated. On the basis of PTIN, individuals would apply for changes in the water bill and electricity charges also if any other such requirements.
