Azadi ka Amrut Mohatsav: Kishtwar admin organises awareness programme on NGDRS
KISHTWAR : As a part of “Azadi ka Amrut Mahatsav” India @ 75, District administration Kishtwar in collaboration with Revenue department hosted an awareness programme on “National Generic Document Registration System” (NGDRS) for the petition writers, Revenue officials and other stakeholders.
The programme was chaired by Additional Deputy Commissioner Kishori Lal Sharma and organised by ACR, Akhter Hussain Qazi.
At the outset, the ADC gave an overview on NGDRS. He said it is a system for land record maintenance and registration, developed by the department of land resources of Government of India.
He said that NGDRS is an IT service and delivery of some of the initiatives of Digital India, the system will enable it to maintain a uniform land record registration system.
“We are entering in a new era of technology and it is the endeavor of the department to keep pace with the present day technological innovations to take its work towards huge success: he added. He said that once the system is implemented, the property buyers will not have to visit the registration office again and again to get their property registered.
The ACR- the Resource person also gave a detailed explanation on the entire process, right from applying for registry to paying stamp duty and court fee online to the stakeholders.
The participants were informed that the people will get an appointment date on which they will have to appear at the Registrar’s office, only for the final signing of documents and registration.
The NGDRS system would help property buyers know the circle rate for land across JK besides understanding the type of land, and any person can access the website where stamp and duty rates are notified.
Besides, awareness regarding the Unique Land Parcel Identification Number (ULPIN) scheme, which has been launched in 10 States in the year 2021 and will be rolled out across the country by March 2022, was also given to the participants as “the Aadhaar for land”, it is a number that would uniquely identify every surveyed parcel of land and prevent land fraud, especially in the hinterlands of rural areas.
The ADC expressed hope that the workshop would be of great help for the participants to further develop their skills in the field.
