All Registrar and Sub Registrar Offices should be computerized and all transactions online. Payment of Registration Charges should be online. Only this will end corruption in property dealings. more
Properties should be registered at actual market rates. This may be usually 5 to 10 times higher than the rate shown in the deed. The payment for property transaction should be cheque only, full value shown and PAN of buyer and seller mentioned in the sale deed. The stamp duty may be reduced to 1/5 to 1/10 of the present rate. The tendency to pay some amount by cash will stop only if big denomination notes of Rs.1000, 500 and 100 are permanently withdrawn from circulation. more
