Chennai: Comparing guideline values of neighbouring lands has been made easy, as the registration department has uploaded villagewise and streetwise guideline values on its web portal. The move could help the landowners to find out anomalies in the revised guideline values and approach the department for rectification.
Prior to December 5, the public could only see the guideline value of a particular survey number at once. If they wanted to compare the guideline values with other lands in a village, they should have to see one by one. To ease the public from the time-consuming task, the department has uploaded guideline values of every survey number in all streets and villages, J. Kumaragurubaran, inspector general of registration, said.
The move has been taken in the wake of continuous representations from the stakeholders, who wanted to rectify the irregularities in guideline values and cited difficulties analysis of values. “Earlier, when a landowner wanted to see guideline values of all the survey numbers in a village, he had to visit sub-registrar office and pay fees for getting copies. Now the details have been uploaded in portable document format (pdf) that can be downloaded for free of cost,” Kumaragurubaran added.
He also said that the landowners could approach inspector general of registration office, sub-registrar offices with proper documents and redress irregularities. “The department has a mechanism to rectify differences in guideline values. If one wants to make corrections in guideline values, they can visit our office,” he said.
According to the www.tnreginet.net, the official website of registration department, guideline values relating to 1.85 lakh streets and over 4 crore survey numbers are available on the website. It is to be noted that the state government had slashed guideline values in the state by 33 per cent that came into effect from June 9.
