Property registration is a pivotal aspect of real estate transactions, as only a properly executed registration grants transfer rights to the buyer and validates their legal ownership of the property. Despite being mandatory in Delhi according to the Registration Act, 1908, many buyers delay registering their properties due to the cumbersome, lengthy, and complex record-keeping procedures involved. To incentivize property registration among real estate buyers in Delhi, the state government has introduced an online registration process. This virtual platform not only eliminates traditional registration challenges but also offers a simpler and more user-friendly option.

Latest updates on property registration in Delhi (December 2023)

In a recent development, Delhi RERA has rescinded its directive issued on September 11, 2023, instructing sub-registrars not to register properties that violate bylaws after a meeting with Lt. Governor VK Saxena on November 28, 2023.

Earlier, a meeting was convened at Raj Niwas between the LG, Delhi RERA officials, the chief secretary, and divisional commissioner to discuss the matter.

During the meeting between the LG and the RERA chairman and members, critical issues faced by Delhi residents were raised. Previously, Delhi RERA had issued an order on September 11, instructing sub-registrars not to register additional dwelling units on a specific plot beyond the permissible limit determined by its size. The order also mandated that building plans approved after September 15, 2023, must clearly indicate the exact count of dwelling units permitted on a plot, with separate markings for each dwelling in the plan.

An official from Raj Niwas stated that the LG had received numerous complaints and representations from the general public, politicians, and municipal councillors regarding challenges encountered during the registry of sale deeds for properties being bought and sold.

According to recent announcements, Delhi is set to be designated as a single district for property registration. Homeowners will have the convenience of registering their properties at any sub-registrar's office without encountering any difficulties. This initiative aims to reduce corruption and streamline the registration process, saving time and effort for individuals.

Additionally, Delhi will introduce the Online Complaint Information Management System (OCIMS), becoming the first in the country to do so. This system will enable people to electronically file complaints, allowing them to upload supporting evidence such as photographs, videos, and audio clips. Once the online system is operational, physical complaints will no longer be accepted. Furthermore, the revenue department plans to implement online issuance of No-Objection Certificates (NOCs) for land plots, eliminating the need for in-person interactions.
