Udaipur : To ease the complicated process of registration and stamping in the state, the government is all set to assess multi state models and their effectiveness so as to implement better provisions here from the next financial year. Six teams consisting of two members each will be visiting 7 states to review the land registration and stamp duty assessment procedure in the respective areas and the best working model would be recommended here. Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Haryana, Punjab and Madhya Pradesh models will be reviewed by the teams of the Registration and Stamps department which will make a report on a ten point scale of assessment. The teams have to submit their detailed report by January 16.
According to sources, in many states, the registration process is so transparent and easy that basic information related to property such as Khasra numbers, DLC rates etc have been made available on internet. However, such technical details have not open to the public here causing great inconvenience and people have to make rounds at the offices for every petty inquiry. Need for simplification and reformation of the process have been felt for long. “ The department has embarked on a big task of administrative restructuring and reformation to ease the current provisions related to registration and stamp duty provisions. The focus is on adoption of a new procedure which will not only simplify the complications now involved but also help to increase the revenue collection, effective control on tax evasion etc” said K.B Gupta, Inspector General- Registration & Stamps, Ajmer. “ A report will be made by each team on the basis of analysis of administrative infrastructure, income and targets, the existing rates of stamp and registration, the parameters to determine the market rate of any property, spot inspection, concessions, computerization, innovations and facilities extended by the states for public convenience” informed Kapil Jain, the information assistant at the office of Sub Registrar, Udaipur.
