After successfully launching Kaveri — the online portal for property registration and other services — the Karnataka government has started work for the second phase aimed at making sub-registrar offices paperless.

The revenue department has taken up the project to offer all its services online. “We plan to digitise sub-registrar offices in phases from next year after giving adequate time to officials and public to familiarise themselves,” an official said.

KV Trilok Chandra, Inspector General of Registrations and Commissioner of Stamps said: “We’re ensuring even the technology challenged use online service without the help of a tout or official.”

With the online facility, paper deeds, document writers and touts could become history.

Property documents, including sale deeds, mortgages, marriage certificates, and transfer deeds will become fully digital with e-signatures, making the process faster and secure.

The public can book an appointment to register their documents. “To curb forgeries, the facility will send email and SMS to the original owner of the property while registering the document. The veracity of documents will be cross-verified using Bhoomi (land records) software,” officials added.

Officials said it’s a crucial step to check corruption. “We’ve a system where many people reach the sub-registrar’s office the same day. With crowds and little infrastructure, everyone falls prey to touts who lure them with shortcuts,” Chandra said.
