The Tamil Nadu Registration department has come out with a new procedure for registering plots.
According to the new advisory that will be effective from August 16, a photograph of the land with geo-coordinates should be attached with relevant documents.
There have been complaints that when people come to register plots, they don’t mention whether buildings have been constructed on it or not.
“Even if a building has been constructed, they register it as a vacant plot. This is causing revenue loss for the government,” said an official.
To avoid this, a photograph of the vacant plot to be registered should be taken along with geo-coordinates. This should be part of the documents being submitted for registration.
A statement from the registration department mentions that action will be taken against sub-registrars who don’t follow the procedures.
