Land record portal is launched by Sindh board of revenue


In its most recent bid to digitize The Sindh Revenue Board has launched its portal to ensure prevention of land grabbing and forged property papers. The aforementioned portal will allow citizens to track their property deeds and the progress of their property registration online. Roshan Shaikh , member of the Revenue board has said that the property’s documents could be checked online with a charge of 150 rupees before an ownership deal.
This will also curtail the powers of sub-registrar in Sindh and the timeline for a sub-registrar to scrutinize documents has been slashed from three months to three days, the revenue board official said. A sub-registrar will face disciplinary action if he will keep the property transfer case more than three days with him, he said. The notification with the property will be issued within a week, the revenue board member said. It will also significantly reduce time to register a property from about seven months to mere 17 days. The board also announced to correct the bogus and forged records in about 3 months time. This is a really good and timely step by the government in the right direction.
