PUNE: Commissioner of cooperation and registrar of cooperative societies Anil Kawade has confirmed that a website is being planned to boost the process of acquiring the conveyance deed for registered societies in the state.
“A common website that will help track the applications with the help of the registration, revenue and our own department can ease the process further. The registration department will provide stamp duty-related details, while the revenue department will ensure the name of the society on record of rights,” said Kawade.
The website is expected to be ready within two months, he further added.
With several webinars and meetings organized by the department and personal visits to nearly 13,000 societies in the city, he explained that the website will ensure easy tracking of applications. “The effort is to track the applications once it is put before the deputy district registrar and give societies an idea about where the location of their application as is done for a passport. This will streamline the entire system,” Kawade said.

When this happens, the process of conveyance deed is complete.
The state has 1.15 lakh registered housing societies of which 85,013 need to complete the conveyance process, only 14,376 societies have obtained deemed conveyance. There are 70,637 societies that must carry out deemed conveyance and the department will help these societies.
