Chandigarh: Haryana government on Sunday said it is working on a new policy to check corruption during immovable property registration at revenue offices in the state.
Under the new policy, a buyer or seller wanting to get property registered or transferred will just have to deposit requisite stamp duty in the tehsil (revenue office) while the owner will get registry at home.
This was stated by Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar in Rohtak today.
Stating that people have lots of complaints regarding registry of immovable property in tehsils, Khattar said, "Work has already started on the new arrangement under which people will get registry at their doorsteps. Concerned officers have assured me that it will be in place after a month."
"If any discrepancy is found in the new system of delivery of registry at people's doorsteps, it would be addressed. If any mistake is found in the registry delivered at the house of the property owner, it would be rectified," he said.
Concerned officers will be held responsible for any fault in implementation of the programmes being launched by the state government, he said.
"We went to people with the promise of development and elimination of corruption from its roots. Now, all works will be carried out in keeping with the wishes of the people. It is my first visit to Rohtak. I know people have high expectations from the government and we shall work to meet them. Action will be taken on every complaint posted on the Chief Minister Window to be started at the district level," Khattar said.
Referring to the first expansion of the Union Government today in which Haryana also got representation, Khattar expressed his gratitude to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and BJP President Amit Shah, for inducting Birender Singh as Cabinet Minister.
