New Delhi: Delhi Government has finalised the draft of a new legislation under which people will be issued title for their properties, a move aimed checking fraudulent transactions.

Delhi Chief Secretary Rakesh Mehta said the draft of the Delhi Urban Property Registration and Titling Act 2009, which will provide a legal framework for granting property titles to all owners, is ready and will be introduced in Delhi Assembly soon.

Addressing the 10th annual Chief Secretaries' summit organised by PHD Chamber here, he said cases involving property disputes are major source of litigation in the city and the proposed legislation seeks to address the problem of duplicate claims to property.

Mehta, who is the brain behind the scheme, said a dispute resolution mechanism will be set up to ensure speedy disposal of the cases which will also bring down the pressure on city courts.
