Step-By-Step Guide To Register Property Online In Karnataka
On November 11, the Karnataka government launched an online portal named Kaveri Online Services to enable property owners to access property and document-related services from a computer instead of visiting the sub-registrar office. Initially tested and implemented in Gandhinagar sub-registrar office, the website now provides details of as many as 250 sub-registrar offices in Karnataka.
MakaaniQ mentions the procedures a buyer in Karnataka must follow for registering a property online:
Step 1: Visit the official website: www(dot)kaverionline(dot)karnataka(dot)gov(dot)in
Login to the website by registering as a user by clicking on the ‘Register as new user’ button on the right.
Step 2: Registration of document is important to make the property transaction valid in government records. All property related documents have to be submitted for registration within a period of four months from the date of execution (signature). Click on the ‘Document Registration’ button on the top left section, shown in the picture, to start the process.
Step 3: Enter the details including the date of execution of the sale deed, etc. Similarly, fill in the section for party and witness details. Then save and proceed.
Witnesses play a vital role in the process. They must be the people you know well and should have a valid ID proof, as mentioned in the picture below.
The sale deed can be prepared by the executant or an advocate. Fill in the relevant information and save.
Step 4: The tab denoting ‘Property details’ allows you to enter information about the concerned property. Save before proceeding.
The government recently hiked the guidance value, the minimum price at which a property can be registered on its sale. Access the Icon number 9 to calculate the guidance value.
Step 5: A crucial step involved in the registration process is the verification of the property title and estimation of the property value. You need to estimate the property value in the area it is located in, for payment of stamp duty.
Step 6: Along with the sale deed, there are other documents required to be submitted such as No Objection Certificate (NOC) if the building is situated in the city’s collector’s land, address proof, Id, etc. For seeking approval from the sub-registrar office, select the ‘Approvals’ tab and upload the documents. Also, to choose the payment mode, select ‘consideration payment details’.
Step 7: You can view all the saved document registration applications to check their statuses.
Step 8: Book an appointment for registration of the sale deed. You must visit the sub-registrar office in your area along with two witnesses. All the parties should carry their photographs and identity proofs along with them.
Step 9: To obtain the encumbrance certificate (EC) and certified copy, go back to step 2 and click on the ‘Online EC’ and ‘Online CC’ icons.
