PUNE: Developers across Maharashtra are increasingly opting for e-registration of first-sale units from their respective offices.
The number of such developers has gone up to 170 this month from 129 in December 2022. The response to the system, which spares developers and homes buyers from visiting the sub-registrars' offices to get properties registered, is growing not only in Pune, Mumbai and Thane, but also in districts such as Nagpur, Amravati, Akola, Sangli, Solapur and Kolhapur, deputy inspector general of registration (IT) Deepak Sonawane said.
"Our target is to ensure that at least 25-30% of the first-sale registrations are carried out from the developers' offices," he told TOI, adding that of the average 15,000 first-sale units registered with the department, 3,000 would be done at the developers' offices.
He said the department has created awareness regarding the e-registration process and trained the developers on the process. Six dedicated officers have been appointed to promote and speed up the e-registration scheme that was initiated in October 2021.
A property registration official said 170 developers were currently using the software from their offices and have registered nearly 8,500 units.
Credai-Pune vice-president Ranjit Naiknavare told TOI that the e-registration facility was working without any hassle. "We hope that all our members in Pune will opt for the process in the next three to six months," he said. Pune-CREDAI (metro) has 450 regular members
Advocate Amitabh Mehta, who has helped citizens with the e-registration process, said, "The system saves time of property buyers as they are not required to visit the registration offices."
