Minister for Stamps & Registration Thota Narasimham, on Sunday, stated that all records in his department would be digitised shortly.
Participating as chief guest in the inauguration of the Sub-Registrar Office Association's new building in Guntur district, Narasimham said that the digitization of documents would facilitate the people to register from anywhere in the state, and prevent corruption and the duplication of documents.
The online registration of property documents will also help in maintaining transparency, he opined.
The minister said that his department has sought Rs. 150 crores in the state budget to upgrade facilities in offices with sophisticated equipment.
He claimed that the Stamps & Registration Department is 3rd in the mobilization of resources, after the Excise Department.
Admitting that there were differences between the records of the departments of Revenue and Stamps & Registration, he said that a joint mechanism was being worked out to resolve them. (INN)
