The Statewide Computerization of Registration (Panjeeyan) Project in Assam was implemented by the Revenue and Disaster Management Department with active support of the Finance Department, under the Assam Governance and Public Resource Management Project (AGPRMP) funded by the Asian Development Bank.
The Projects for Transformation of Mineral and Administration through e-Governance of the Government of Karnataka and Online Voting System (OVS) of the State Election Commission, Gujarat have been selected for the Silver and Bronze Icons respectively in the category of Excellence in Government Process Re-engineering, an official release said.
Under the Computerization of Registration (Panjeeyan) Project, all 75 Sub-Registrar Offices across the State have been computerized replacing the earlier manual system of maintaining records and registers.
The registration process carried out in sub-registrar offices is a means of recording documents like sale deed, mortgage, agreement, lease deed, power of attorney, will, etc., as provided for in the Registration Act, 1908. It confers a legal status to the document and provides a measure of security to the transaction and minimizes scope of disputes. Further, significant government revenue in the form of stamp duties and registration fees have to be deposited in sub-registrar offices.
Process re-engineering through application of information technology has brought about a remarkable change in the service delivery system and improved efficiency in the offices by eliminating the need to manually create and then store physical registers and other records.
