In order to move towards digitization and promote ease of doing business, the government of India launched the National Generic Document Registration System (NGDRS) as a pilot programme, under which property registration facility would be available online across the country. From NGDRS payment of stamp duty to online appointment booking at the sub-registrar’s office (SRO), the entire process has been made seamless with the help of the system.
Importance of NGDRS
The NGDRS represents a major shift from the existing manual registration system to an online system, for all types of transactions, including sale, purchase and transfer of land. Initially, the system was piloted in Punjab, Rajasthan and Maharashtra but later, more states joined in, including Jammu and Kashmir and the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. The system will also encourage the offices working in geographically remote areas, to adopt technology and digitisation and reduce manual effort, thereby, reducing errors in land records.
