From August property owners don't have to carry cash to Mini Secretariat to register their properties as the district administration is planning introduce an online payment facility.

Also, residents can seek an appointment with officials online so that they don't have to wait for hours in a queue. Properties are registered at the revenue office in Mini Secretariat near Rajiv Chowk.

The administration also plans to post photos of the buyer, seller and sub-registrar, taken together, so if a fraud is detected the government official supervising the registration process could be made accountable.

Gurgaon deputy commissioner PC Meena said, "Initially we would introduce the online appointment system that is if somebody wants to take time before coming for registration he would be given that in order to save his time."

"After this, we would introduce the online payment system. Now, residents, who otherwise are compelled to carry cash, would not have to carry it anymore," he added. But it would not be mandatory as some people are not tech savvy.

The administration has also installed 16 high-resolution CCTV cameras in the month of March at the offices of tehsildars, sub-registrars and other revenue officials - directly monitored by the Deputy Commissioner, SDM (North) and City Magistrate. The step was taken to keep an eye on touts, middlemen as well as corrupt officials as part of the administration's effort to curb corruption.
