The Haryana government, which had, since July 22, temporarily halted registration of transfer deeds related to transfer of land/ properties in the state, will restart the process in a phased manner.
The process for taking eappointments for registration of agricultural land in rural areas of the state will start from Tuesday. However, the registration of agricultural land deeds will start from August 17. Similarly, e-appointments for the registration of land deeds in urban areas will start from August 17 and the date for restarting registration of deeds will be shared soon.
The decision on resuming registration process was taken in a meeting led by chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar and deputy CM Dushyant Chautala on Monday. During the meeting, linkages of various departments with e-Registration system of revenue department was also reviewed.
The CM was informed that the testing of the module for e-registration of agricultural land deeds in rural areas, prepared by the revenue department, has been completed.
Haryana has already made sweeping changes in the process of registration of property/land sale deeds after the alleged registries scam, which occurred during the lockdown and covers over 30,000 sale deeds executed without the mandatory no-objection certificates (NoCs). These land sale deeds were executed without taking NoCs from the town and country planning and urban local bodies departments in Gurgaon, Sonipat, Faridabad and Jhajjar districts.
Khattar specifically directed that the decision regarding no registration of transfer of deeds of land for land in urban areas, as declared/notified under Section 7-A of the Haryana Development and Regulation of Urban Areas Act, 1975 (as amended from time to time) and villages where the jamabandis are currently offline and not available on web-HALRIS will remain unchanged.
Besides, no registration of transfer of deeds of land will be done in controlled areas for the time being.
The Haryana government is also using technology-based checks to prevent registrations in violation of the law by interfacing the web HALRIS application with TCP, ULBs, HSVP, HSIIDC, urban estates, police, forests, litigation matters on priority basis.
There are a total of 32 lakh properties in urban areas across the state, of which 18 lakh properties are integrated with the department portal. The rest will also be brought on a single digital platform by October 31.
