In order to reduce the backlog in the transfer of conveyance deeds to various societies, the state government will be implementing a pilot project for two months to expedite the procedure.
This was announced by chief minister Prithviraj Chavan at a function organised by Congress MP Sanjay Nirupam at Kandivli on Saturday.
"It has now become our mission to hand over conveyance deeds under a time-bound programme," Chavan said.
He also listed the timetable for the programme. "The first ten days of the month would be dedicated to various housing societies to submit their applications to the deputy register of that region. The next 10 will have the deputy registrar examining the papers and suggesting the remaining documents to be submitted.
"We will post details on the website and also on the notice board," he said. The third phase (21st onwards) would have the hearing where orders would be passed on the conveyance deeds. "This time-bound mission will go on for the next two months, till December 31," he said.
Conveyance is land ownership of the particular plot of land on which a building stands.
Many builders avoid handing over the ownership to the society so that they can exploit any benefits occurring from that plot in future.
However, Chavan cautioned "It would be difficult if there are FSI violations." He said a humanitarian view would be taken in case of normal violations.
The city currently has 25,000 cooperative societies of which 20,000 still have no conveyance deeds in their names. "It is good announcement," said Ramesh Prabhu, chairman, Maharashtra Societies Welfare Association.
