Revenue minister Bikram Singh Majithia on Sunday asked the divisional commissioners and deputy commissioners to randomly check the records of daily property registration, with a view to bringing more transparency and efficiency in the functioning at the tehsil and sub-tehsil levels.


Majithia said all divisional commissioners and deputy commissioners would submit their reports to the financial commissioner, revenue, every fortnight. He said the exercise would be part of the revenue reforms initiated by the SAD-BJP government in order to provide hassle-free revenue services at the grassroots level.

He said that to make the record-checking system more effective, the divisional commissioners would not only check the fresh cases but also verify the cases that had already been checked by the deputy commissioners.

Majithia said that now the complete details along with the contact numbers of buyers and sellers would also be kept in record so that they could be called randomly to know the hardships, if any, faced by them while getting a property registered.

DROs designated for registration of marriages
The state government has designated the district revenue officers to register the marriages of NRIs. NRI affairs and revenue minister Bikram Singh Majithia on Sunday said that earlier tehsildars were the only designated officers to register these marriages. "Now the government has also designated the district revenue officers along with tehsildars to register these marriages," he added.

In order to eliminate the alleged corruption during the registration of marriages, the state government has asked all officers concerned to submit the report about the NRI marriage registrations to the financial commissioner, revenue, every fortnight. He said the report would comprise all domestic and foreign addresses along with telephone numbers to keep a check and to make the system more transparent and people friendly.
