Ranchi: State’s Land Reforms and Tourism Minister Amar Kumar Bauri launched the National Generic Document Registration System
(NGDRS) at the project building here. Speaking on the occasion the minister said that before 2014 the process of land registration
and collecting information related to land was very complex in the state but after coming to power the present government has taken many steps as a result of which a common man can get all the information related to the land via online.
He said that now the landowner and the buyer can be made aware of the real condition of the land and now with the launch of the new system the people will not face much trouble in getting the registration of their land done. He said that the system will not only save time but will also bring transparency in the process. The minister said that it is the endeavour of the government to protect the rights of the people and said that the system in the first phase has been implemented in the East Singhbhum district and later would be adopted across the state.
He pointed out that Jharkhand was the lone state in the country where property worth up to Rs 50 lakh in the name of the women was being registered at just Re 1. Mr Bauri said that 42 registry offices in the state are computerized and they have been integrated with the circle offices which makes work easy. On the occasion, the minister gave ISO certificates to the registration offices of Ranchi, Deoghar and Ramgarh. Those present also included Secretary Land Revenue Department K K Soan and others.
