AP launching PRIMME for online submission of property documents

The applicants can pay the total amount for the services through online mode

Vijayawada: The Andhra Pradesh government is launching a software programme for citizens to file applications online for registration of their property documents, so as to avoid a long waiting period at the sub-registrar offices.

The stamps and registration department would ensure hassle-free registrations in a phased manner from September 1.

The programme named as ‘Computer-Aided Administration of Registration Department-Property Rights Mutation Made Easy’ (CAD-PRIMME), helps people to submit their application forms online at the department website for services like registration of sale of properties, mortgages, gifts, release of rights and lease-out of properties including agricultural and non-agricultural.

The applicants can pay the total amount for the services through online mode.

The system would be implemented at all 294 sub-registrar offices, all known for their notorious delays, and at 2,000 village/ward secretariats in a phased manner. This process is expected to be completed by September 15.

The existing practice was for citizens to go to sub-registrar offices and fill up applications for varied services manually. They had to make payments in the form of demand drafts.

The new facility will enable the citizens to fill up application forms in standard formats and submit them online, on the department website, from their home. Soon, an ID will be generated and the citizens can book a slot to visit the sub-registrar office and share the ID so that their signature, thumb impression, iris and photograph will be taken at the sub-registrar office. They will receive the certificates via their email ID.

The government is also planning to introduce Aadhaar based e-signature. A senior official from the egistration and stamps department said, “On an average 8,000 to 10,000 documents get registered with our department a day.”

Meanwhile, in erstwhile Krishna district, the facility was introduced on an experimental basis in 24 sub-registrar offices from Thursday. The authorities said they faced some glitches due to the new software and drivers installed in the computers for registration of documents in some places. These were rectified immediately.
