Tvm: As part of the UDF Government’s 100 days programme in Kerala, the Minister for Food & Civil Supplies, Registration, & Consumer Protection, Shri T M Jacob today launched the online services of the Registration Department at the Sub-Registrar office at Muttada in Thiruvananthapuram. From today, applications for Encumbrance Certificate, Registration Copy (title deed), and Special Marriage Act will be accepted online across 310 Sub-Registrar offices in Kerala.
Inaugurating the service, the Minister said, “This is an effort by the Government to make the Registration Department more citizen friendly and this project is the first step towards total computerisation of the Department. The next target is to issue the Registration of Title deed (Aadharam) and the Transfer of Registry (Pokkuvarvu) documents the same day within the next one year.” He also added that as part of the National e-Governance Programme, all the 310 Sub-Registrar offices in Kerala will be networked and all the records and documents will be put on a common server at the State Data Centre. This will help any Sub-Registrar office to access any land record across Kerala.
The Minister also inaugurated the online registration for new Partnership Firms and Charitable Societies through EGROOPs (Electronic Governance for registration of Partnership Firms and Societies) website (egroops.kerala.gov.in)
Talking to Kerala IT News, K J Sharath Chandran, Sub-Registrar, Muttada said, “As of now the fees for the service will be intimated by email and the amount including postal charges will have to be sent by Money Order as it will take some more time for the e-Payment services to be launched. The certificate or copy will be despatched by post the next day.”
Applicants can access the Registration Department website (keralaregistration.gov.in) and apply online. The website and the software, PEARL (Programme for Effective Administration of Registration Laws), for the computerisation of the Department have been developed by NIC, Kerala.
