A prospective property buyer in the State can now fill up the application form and pay fee online before seeking an appointment with the sub-registrar for document registration.
In a bid to make registration of documents convenient to the public and reduce interface with touts loitering around the sub-registrar’s office, the Stamps and Registration Department is set to introduce KAVERI Online Services. They will be launched by Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy in the presence of Revenue Minister R.V. Deshpande on Monday.
According to sources, the launch was scheduled for October 16 but had to be put off because of the model code of conduct imposed on account of the byelections. “Some services have been made available already, but the entire set of services will be available from tomorrow,” a source said.
Apart from online pre-registration data entry by citizens and booking of appointments for registration of documents, the services include issuance of certified copies of encumbrance certificates against payment of fee online. Owners can also view property details for no payment at all. The online services will also provide the details of 250 sub-registrar offices in the State, which will help users locate their jurisdictional offices.
For those wishing to register marriage at the sub-registrar’s office, there is also a marriage office locator that provides information on the jurisdiction of sub-registrar offices to register marriage.
For those looking for stamp papers, the online e-stamp paper facility through the Stock Holding Corporation of India has been provided. The user can take a printout of the e-stamp for purposes of agreement and affidavit by making payment online.
Besides, the department will also release the ‘Maulya’ app that will help citizens understand the guidance value of particular immovable properties.
