Although the list of corruption is endless. However, the most grey area of corruption is Sub-registrar Office. This is very said that the sale deed is executed and the mutation is not done with out presenting the seller before the Tehsildar. He ask money for executing mutation. In case bribery is given, he may delay the work or his file will be shown as lost file and the sale deed gets useless. Government must pay attention to this aspect and amend the rules of Revenue Act. Mutation should be done in favour of purchaser automatically once the Sale Deed has been executed. Ram Yadav more
