Maharashtra: Online registration of new properties from builders offices picks up speed

The e-registration project, which commenced two years ago, has picked up with many developers coming forward to register the documents from their own offices.

Meena Chavan, who recently registered her flat from the builder’s office, said she felt it was an easy process without having to wait for long. “The builder gave us a specific time and three homebuyers reached his office. We were done by within ten to fifteen minutes as all the documents were ready. Only some days there are connectivity issues, which, if addressed, would not require one to visit the sub-registrar’s office,” she said.

Pune: Nearly 300 developers across Maharashtra have opted for e-registration of first sale of properties from their own offices, officials said.

The e-registration project, which commenced two years ago, has picked up with many developers coming forward to register the documents from their own offices. This has helped in reducing footfall at the sub registrar’s offices for new

properties, and we are encouraging more developers to opt for this facility,” property registration officials said.

Nearly 9,000 documents have been registered by the developer’s offices in the last one year, the data shared by the registration department showed. DIG (IT) Abhishek Deshmukh told TOI that they expect the numbers to go up and in the next two months, and another 200 developers are likely to come forward for e-registration.

“The user experience has been good, and we have received positive feedback. The developer’s bodies are doing their bit to create more awareness about e-registration, he said. The office-bearers of the Confederation of Real Estate Developers’ Associations of India (CREDAI) and National Real Estate Development Council (NARDECO) have requested their members to carry out the first sale of project registration from their own offices due to the heavy rush in registration offices. Many other states have initiated similar initiatives, the official said.

Governing council member CREDAI national Shantilal Kataria said, “The initial hiccups have been ironed out, and many developers are interested in the process. By the end of the year, many more builders will carry out the registration process from their offices. The registration department is focusing on this process and developers, too, are comfortable carrying out the same from their own offices. However, the state government needs to push this initiative further.”

Abhay Kele, vice-president, NARDECO, Pune, added that the e-registrations from developers’ offices have picked up since last year. “There should be more awareness about the e-registration process across the state. It will help save time and reduce footfall at the registration offices. It will help the real estate industry as well as homebuyers can register their properties from the developers’ offices,” he said.

Officials from the registration department added that with registrations high in metro cities, the demand for registering from developers’ offices has increased.
