The Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda) has restricted all tehsildars (block revenue officers) from executing sale and gift deeds without the prior knowledge of the Huda estate officer (EO).
A direction issued in this regard on Saturday states that any such deed made without the knowledge of the EO will create confusion in plot ownership records at Huda office.
"It has been decided to recommend that a letter may be issued to all the tehsildars to execute the sale deed/gift deed only after a no-objection certificate (NOC) is issued by the concerned EO so as to update the accounts of Huda allottees and avoid incomplete information of allottees on computers," reads the direction.
According to Huda, the original owners as per authority's records remain unchanged in cases of plots' transfer or sale as neither the original owner nor the buyer bothers to update the same in EO records.
The direction would be binding upon both parties. They need to inform the EO before and after the registry - for sale-purchase purposes - of the plots.
"Huda does not have updated records of plots in which ownership changed. People sold or transferred the plots to third parties but did not inform the office of EO, which happens to be the custodian of such deeds," said Sanjay Sharma, general manager, IT, Huda.
"I haven't received any such letter from Huda. I can comment after going through the directions," said Satbir Singh, district revenue officer, Gurgaon.
The direction came after Huda's IT department raised the matter issue with the department's chief controller of finance.
