Property registration to go online in Kerala

In order to revive the real estate business in Kerala which has suffered hugely after demonetisation, the Kerala government has taken steps for payment of registration fees online.

Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan posted on Facebook on Monday that the National Informatics Centre (NIC) has been tasked to introduce the facility.

He said scrapping of high value currency notes had caused severe currency shortage, affecting registration of properties, thus causing hardships to people.

To resolve this, the government had decided to introduce e-payment facility, he said.

Due to currency shortage, the registration fees can also be deposited via Demand Draft, he said, adding that government was considering introducing more such services online.
