Hyderabad: Registration of properties and conferring ownership rights on the purchaser (mutation) in Andhra Pradesh will be integrated from August this year. The entire process, from registering agricultural lands, mutation and issue of pattadar passbook and title deed to the buyer will be completed electronically.
The new system will ensure that only a genuine owner sells and registers a property. This will also help the purchaser to avoid paying bribes to revenue officials for mutation.
Following instructions from CM N. Kiran Kumar Reddy to integrate sale and registration activities a month back, Revenue, Registr-ation and I-T officials have implemented the new system on an experimental basis.
“We are now ready for implementing it across the state. The chief minister is likely to make a formal launch in the first week of August once the election code is over,” said an official.
As per law, mere registration of property does not accord ownership rights and the purchaser has to apply for mutation to the tahsildar of the respective mandal who, in turn, will issue proceedings and make entries of the new ownership in the Record of Rights, besides issuing pattadar passbooks.
Under the new method, the sub registrar will verify the survey number, ownership and description of property in the revenue records online and register the property only when the details submitted by the seller matches the revenue records.
Details of registration will be transferred online to the tahsildar. The tahsildar will automatically complete the process including upda-ting revenue records. In the first phase, the facility will be available for agricultural lands only.
