Telangana Government decided to begin registration of non-agricultural lands through Dharani, an integrated land record management system portal from November 25.
Revised Registration of Properties on Dharani
Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao instructed the officers concerned on Sunday, 22nd Nov, to prepare themselves for the introduction of registration of state-wide non-agricultural properties from 25 November.
Even though the state government announced earlier that registrations would restart from 23 November, later it decided to postpone the start of the process as the High Court questioned about uploading process of non-agricultural land on Dharani Portal. On 23 November, the matter was due to be heard.
The government is ready to begin the process completely. The questions which the Telangana High Court had asked in this respect have been explained already. He also stated that stamp charge is collected in the towns, cities and villages based on current market rates for lands. He pointed out that no one has any power to alter fixed land values.
Dharani to Facilitate Registration of Properties in Telangana
The registration of agricultural lands had started on October 29, the process of online registration of agricultural land had received an excellent response from the people. People are happy that the registration process through the Dharani portal has given them land security and hence immense satisfaction.
The officials said that the new system would fill in gaps in the process of registration and store some information about land and property online. Also, on the spot, it will provide documents related registration, mutation, secession and partition.
On the Dharani portal, the officials have already submitted records for 59.46 lakh properties in Telangana. The concept behind the Dharani portal is to give citizens services transparently, without the risk of corruption. This portal was designed as a part of the integrated land record system, will boost the transparency, efficiency and accountability of land registration, mutation and transportation, and provide stable and stress - free citizen services.
A network of 570 mandal revenue offices and 142 sub-registration offices has developed online. Under the new Revenue Act, Tehsildars will also act as joint sub-registrars to register agricultural properties while the sub-registrars will register the non-agricultural property.
Online registration of properties would facilitate and provide hassle-free services and have no scope for corruption.
