All sub-registrar offices in Kottayam computerised

By Our Staff Reporter

KOTTAYAM, FEB. 18. The computerisation work of sub-registrar offices, being taken up as part of the e-governance programme, has been completed in the district, the Minister for Rural Development and Registration, C.F. Thomas, has said. Kottayam is the first district in the State to complete computerisation of sub-registration offices.

The immediate outcome of the completion of computerisation programme would be that the inordinate delay in the issuance of encumbrance certificates, which has a delay of at least one month, would be done away with, the Minister said. He said with the computerisation, it should be possible to issue an encumbrance certificate within three days. There are 22 sub-registrar offices in the district. He said the unique achievement would be declared at a function at the Thengana sub-registrar office on Thursday. Out of the 308 sub-registrar offices in the State, 114 had already been computerised. Another 103 would be computerised during the current financial year, he said. This would leave only 91 for the coming financial year, the Minister said.

He said computerisation of the sub-registrar offices was only the first phase. To complete the computerisation project, the administration and management of the Department of Registration, office of the Registration IG, which is responsible for the registration of charitable societies, partnership firms and chit funds would also be brought under e-governance. This would be followed by the regional and district-level offices, so that the networking of the systems could be realised, he said.

The Minister said the delay in getting things done in Government offices, was the main contributing factor in the rampant corruption in some of the departments. The computerisation project would result in doing away with the inordinate delays and as such would contribute to eradication of corruption.

The Minister pointed out that with the withdrawal of the Fair Value Notification, people would get another 60 days to register their complaints. Complaints could be submitted on a white paper, he said. The details of the draft were available at the respective RDO, taluk, sub-registrar, village and grama panchayat offices, he said.
