PR card mandatory for property registration & transaction from Dec.

Once the draft PR card is issued, 30 days will be given for filing objections.  

The government has made PR cards mandatory for property registration and transaction in the city from December 1. It issued a notification to this effect on October 25. The notification applies to 32 revenue villages under the jurisdiction of Mangaluru City Corporation, according to a release from the office of the Deputy Commissioner.

The PR card is the government’s certificate given to the owner of the property. This is a proof of ownership of property and is created under the provisions of the Karnataka Land Revenue Acts and Rules. The card is an eight-page document on property holding.

The production of PR card and recording the Urban Property Ownership Records (UPOR) number during property registration and transaction will be compulsory in the city from next month, it stated.

Property owners who have not applied for PR cards should do so by approaching the UPOR Project Office in the Mini-Vidhana Soudha at Hampankatta. They should submit documents required for the same. This applied to apartments too. The office can be contacted on 4266222. The owners can also submit records to the staff of UPOR Project Office when they visited the houses to collect documents.

The UPOR Project was initiated in the city six years ago. The city has been divided into six zones and 30 sectors under the project.

According to Sasikanth Senthil S., Deputy Commissioner, once the draft PR card is issued, 30 days would be given for filing objections, if any. The final card will be sold only after addressing issues mentioned in the objections. The property owner would have to pay the prescribed fee for getting the PR card.

Mr. Senthil said once the PR card was ready, tampering with property records would be difficult. The property owner would have a clear title.
