New e-sub-registrar office opens in east Delhi

New Delhi, Feb. 14 -- Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit on Wednesday inaugurated an e-sub-registrar office in east Delhi's Vivek Vihar on Wednesday.

Two such offices were inaugurated at Mehrauli and Rohini last year. "This will make the public experience of registration and stamping completely modernised and user-friendly. The revenue department intends to overhaul the conventional registration process with such e-sub-registrar office," said Dikshit.

She said at present a person who wants to register a document has to deal with huge crowds, serpentine queues and lack of basic infrastructure such as proper seating, drinking water and toilet facilities.

"Even after going through this ordeal, he or she has to make several rounds of the sub-registrar office and wait endlessly before the document is registered and delivered. To put an end to this, the new system envisages a process in which each applicant arrives at the e-sub registrar office after fixing an appointment. The appointment can be taken online by accessing the website of the revenue department. It will eliminate the role of touts too," said a senior Delhi government official.

The task of constructing the building of the e-sub registrar office at a sanctioned cost of Rs. 4.30 crore was entrusted to the DTTDC and was completed in two months only. The same model will soon be replicated at remaining deputy commissioner offices very soon.
