The State Government will introduce a system of simultaneous transfer of title deeds while registering property documents at sub-registrar’s office, the Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami has said.

Laying foundation stones for new projects in Edappadi on Friday evening, Mr. Palaniswami said that coordination between sub-regisrar’s offices and taluk offices will be ensured.

Nearly seven lakh documents wre being registered at sub-registar’s offices every year. The new facility will expedite hassle-free name transfer process, he added.

Referring to agitations of government employees, Mr. Palaniswami said that the government has earmarked ₹ 14,877 crore for implementing the Seventh Pay Commission.

He said that the State Government raises 69 % of its revenue by itself, and the rest comes from the Centre. Of the State Government’s share, 61 % was being spent on salary for its 13 lakh staff. The government was spending the rest 8 % for executing various projects.

The staff should understand this, and call off their agitation, the Chief Minister said.

At a time when the government was implementing various projects for the benefit of its employees, the Opposition parties were instigating them against the government, he alleged. The government staff should not fall prey to the tactics of the Opposition.
