Punjab local bodies minister Anil Joshi on Friday appealed to chief minister Parkash Singh Badal to issue orders to extend the time limit for getting the conveyance deed registration on allotment price by at least two months.

The state government has announced a golden opportunity for all immoveable properties, plots and houses allotted by the government or a public sector undertaking or local bodies to get their first conveyance deeds registered at rates mentioned in their allotment letters till June 7, which resulted in benefit to a large number of allottees.

In a letter to the chief minister, Joshi hailed the decision saying the earlier allottees were required to get the conveyance deed executed on collector rate that was linked to the present market rate of property and the decision to register deeds on allotment rate had facilitated a large number of allottees.

He said the state was earning handsome revenue due to this decision and the public felt satisfied with the pro-active approach of the Punjab government towards the genuine long-pending demand.

Joshi said there was not sufficient time available for the public to avail benefit under the scheme due to the delay in issuance of the notification. The minister said extending the date by at least two months should be considered sympathetically in larger public interest.
