Mahbubnagar: With the State government deciding to authorise Tahsildars to register lands at mandal-level across the State, the district administration in Mahbubnagar is preparing the ground to provide infrastructure to implement scheme. The district administration has decided to procure equipment, like computers, scanners, devices for biometric verification and providing internet devices in all the 60 mandals.

According to Revenue authorities, the State government has decided to launch the first phase of the land registration scheme at mandal offices from May 5. Five mandals across the State have been identified for launching scheme on a pilot basis. The second phase of the scheme will be launched by May 19 in 30 more mandals across the State, if the first phase of the programme proves a success. Upon successful implementation, the State government will launch the scheme in all the 443 mandals from June this year, the authorities said.

In Mahbubnagar district, there are 72 mandals. Of them 12 mandals have Sub-Registrar offices. The government may transfer powers of land registration to Tahsildars in 60 mandals where is not Sub-Registrar office. In the first phase pilot project, the state government has not selected any mandal in Mahbubnagar district for launching the scheme. But, in the second phase, which is scheduled to be launched on May 19, one mandal from each district of erstwhile Mahbubnagar to implement the scheme as pilot project.

"In the second phase the State government has selected Devarkadra from Mahbubnagar Pebbair from Wanaparthy, Ija from Gadwal and Bijinapally mandal from Nagarkurnool district. The Tahsildars of these mandals have already undergone basic training.

The main reason for the State government to bring changes in land registration process is reduce work burden on the existing sub-registrar offices across the State. At present there are 141 sub-registrar offices across the State. "Currently the Sub-Registrar offices are located only at Taluk level and it is a cumbersome process to travel all the way to get land registrations done.
