Pune: Nine property registration offices may be shifted soon

These nine offices are in Hadapsar, Wadgaonsheri, Vishrantwadi, Khadi Machine Chowk, Karvenagar, Chinchwad, Pimpri and Erandwane

PUNE: In response to complaints from city residents about a lack of space and necessary amenities like restrooms, the property registration department has filed a proposal to the state government to relocate nine of the city’s 27 property registration offices.
The nine locations where these offices are located are Hadapsar, Wadgaonsheri, Vishrantwadi, Khadi Machine Chowk, Karvenagar, Chinchwad, Pimpri, and Erandwane. Officials from the state registration department claimed to have already located properties in these locations and to be in contact with the municipal corporations about them.

The new offices would be established in the same locations, according to Joint District Registrar Santosh Hingane. But the requirements for the offices are that they must be roughly 2,000 square metres, have restrooms, and preferably be on the ground floor, he told TOI. Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil, the revenue minister, had already ordered the property registration officials to renovate the outdated offices.

Shrikant Joshi, a citizen activist, claimed it was the government’s duty to provide up suitable facilities at all offices for property registration. “All sub-registrar offices must have at least 5,000 square metres of space, as well as amenities like bathrooms and running water. They ought to be downstairs, he said.


For the comfort of senior citizens, Chandrakant Phartale, another activist, claimed he has been requesting that the property registration offices be moved from the first floor to the ground floor.
The state government approved over Rs45 crore almost 11 years ago to upgrade the fundamental facilities at these offices all over the state. Although these offices have been updated, the majority of them lack even the most basic amenities. “There is no token system in place and there is a rush at most offices,” said Sharada Bankar, a Kothrud resident, referring to the first-floor Karvenagar registration office.

The programme will include the provision of appropriate space for document storage, appropriate space for hangers, a waiting area, and visitor restrooms. Additionally, an official stated that procedures are being taken to replace all of the outdated hardware in these locations with the newest models.
Verifying tenants online The online tenant verification, which is integrated with the Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and Systems, according to registration department officials, would lessen traffic at police stations. According to a police official, “it was operational before Covid, but it has yet to re-start at all police stations.”
