The Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda) on Thursday successfully issued the city’s first digitally signed permission to an applicant allowing her to mortgage her property.

This is the first document of its kind to be issued after the Huda took its plot and permission management (PPM) system online. The trial run of the system is currently on and the system will fully functional by Monday.

This has come as a big relief to city residents as they can now apply online for property transfer, mortgage, building plan etc and get the application processed in a matter of just four days. It has done away with the hassle of having to visit the Huda office multiple times in order to get their applications cleared.

On January 11, the district town planning (DTP) department, Gurgaon, had granted a completion certificate for a building in less than a week under the newly launched self certification scheme of the Haryana government.

For getting a mortgage permission, the applicants earlier had to submit an application at Huda office and wait 21 days for approval.

“We applied on Wednesday afternoon seeking permission to mortgage our property and on Thursday morning, we got call from the estate office (EO-II) Huda to collect the same. We appreciate the ease with which the application was processed and that too in such a short time,” said Manju Gupta, the applicant, who is a resident of Sector 57.

In the online system, the maximum delivery period for all services is four working days.

“The applicant visited EO-II on Wednesday for submitting the biometrics which is essential in the new digital online system. The application was processed in 12 hours through four stages from Patwari to EO. The state observed a trial run of the digital services on Thursday,” said Vivek Kalia, estate officer.

Chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar will launch the service, via video conferencing from the Huda headquarters in Panchkula, on Monday.

The new online system will replace all manual services.

In the new online system, the applicant would require to visit Huda estate office as per his online appointment with the officer concerned for submitting his biometrics and photographs. Later, a digitally signed approval letter would be made available on the user ID of the applicant, which can be downloaded. Once a person applies online on the Huda portal, an OTP (one-time password) will be sent to the Aadhaar linked phone number of the applicant and the applicant can use this password to use the portal as per his/her conveniences.
