West Bengal will allow online registration of properties in view of the prevailing social distancing norms and issue provisional registration certificates, State Chief Secretary Rajiva Sinha stated.
A 20 per cent discount on registration charges has been announced to encourage online registrations. West Bengal is likely the first State to allow e-registration of title deeds.
The decision was taken at a Cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
