Hyderabad: Document writers will be held responsible for fake or wrong registration of properties along with officials and employees of stamps and registration department. 

The TS government is set to bring in a new regulatory mechanism to regulate document writers who were found to be resorting to irregularities by colluding with brokers and officials of the revenue, stamps and registration departments to usurp government lands.

The state government will start issuing  licences to document writers soon. Only licenced document writers will be allowed to practice the profession. There will be a minimum educational qualifications stipulated for document writers.

Document writers will have to be holders of  a bachelor’s degree. For heriditary document writers, whose families have been into the profession for generations,  the minimum educational qualification will be Intermediate (10+2).

The government will conduct training classes for the document writers on the do’s and don’ts while writing property documents. The recent raids by ACB and CID following Miyapur land scam had revealed the role of document writers in property transactions.

Bunches of registered documents, which should be either in the possession of sub-registrar offices or property owners, were found in the shops run by document writers. 

“There are no prescribed norms for document writers at present due to which unscrupulous elements are entering the profession. They are setting up shops around sub-registrar offices, luring officials and staff in offices with bribes to get illegal registrations done. They are also looting the common people by collecting hefty amounts for registrations. They have created such an atmosphere at sub-registrar offices in nexus with officials and staff  that common people are forced to approach document writers for registration of properties or their registrations will be kept pending. The TS government will no longer tolerate this,” said Mohd Mahmood Ali, Deputy CM who holds revenue portfolio.

He said once the licencing system for document writers would be put in place, it will create an atmosphere of professionalism in document writing. “It will also give scope for government to cancel licences if any document writer was found to be indulging in irregularties,” he added.
