Res­i­dents do not need lawyers or agents to reg­is­ter for leave and li­cence agree­ment for their flats any­more as the reg­is­tra­tion and stamps depart­ment (RSD) has planned to make the reg­is­tra­tion process on­line.

The process to ap­point a pri­vate agency in Pan­vel for offering the ser­vice has be­gun.

“Ef­forts are on to ap­point a pri­vate agency in Pan­vel to pro­vide the e-reg­is­tra­tion ser­vice. Pro­pos­als have been sub­mit­ted by some agen­cies to the regis­trar of­fice. A cit­i­zen ser­vice cen­tre will soon be started in New Pan­vel,” said an of­fi­cial from the Pan­vel regis­trar of­fice on con­di­tion of anonymity.

On­line reg­is­tra­tion of leave and li­cence agree­ment will save flat own­ers time and money. Ear­lier, they had to pay lawyers for their ser­vices and stand in long queues.

“The on­line sys­tem will help res­i­dents cal­cu­late stamp duty and reg­is­tra­tion charges au­to­mat­i­cally. They will also be able to pre­pare, mod­ify and view the draft agree­ment be­fore ex­e­cu­tion and sub­mis­sion for reg­is­tra­tion,” said the of­fi­cial.

“Pay­ment of stamp duty and reg­is­tra­tion fee will be made through Gov­ern­ment Re­ceipt Ac­count­ing Sys­tem. The doc­u­ment will be reg­is­tered by the depart­ment and the par­ties will get it elec­tron­i­cally,” said the of­fi­cial.

“Since reg­is­tra­tion of all rented flats is manda­tory, there will be a fur­ther in­crease in reg­is­tra­tions,” said Ma­hesh Natale, an es­tate agent.

Af­ter Pune, Mum­bai and Thane, the sys­tem has now been ini­ti­ated in Pan­vel owing to the de­mand from lo­cals.

The RSD has al­ready pro­vided the op­tion of e-reg­is­tra­tion for pur­chase and sale of land and flat.
