PUNE: Tenants across the state registering their leave and licence agreements with the property registration department will soon be exempted from visiting police stations for verification.
The state property registration department is ready with a module for integration of the tenant registration data with that of the home department, state inspector general of registration and stamps HH Sonawane said.
The department intends to map all the 1,130 police stations in the state for sharing the registration data of tenants, he added.
Currently, the system is in vogue in Pune and Mumbai, and tenants living in these two cities do not have to visit police stations for verification.
In Pune, the verification process went online in September 2019 following integration of ISARITA and the Tenant Information System, giving 30 police stations under the jurisdiction of the Pune commissionerate instant access to tenants’ data.
Sonawane said there are technical issues that needed to be ironed out and the department has started communicating with home department regarding mapping of police stations and villages. The registration department officials said that they have already sent several letters to the home department regarding the integration, which involves mapping the data of police stations with 44,000 villages. “We have started communicating with the home department again and the process will start soon,” he said.
Officials from the technical section of the home department said that work is on to integrate villages with the police stations. “There are 44,000 villages and the work to integrate the villages with the police stations is in progress,” said an official.
Nearly 35,000 leave and licence documents are e-registered in the state every month, property registration officials said. Abhishek Deshmukh, deputy inspector general of registration and stamps (IT) said the module is ready and login IDs have been provided to the Pune and Mumbai city police officials. “Similar efforts will be initiated with other police stations, too, once the data is ready,” he said.
Earlier, houseowners were required to submit tenants’ details online on the Pune police portal or to the nearest police station. Officials said many tenants prefer not to register their leave and licence documents, just to avoid visiting police stations.
“The new system is a perfect example of how departments can work together to ensure checks and safety of citizens. This is also a simple way to share data,” a registration official added.
Sachin Shingavi, president, association of real estate agents, said tenants in Pune city are no longer required to visit police stations for verification.
