Here’s how you can do mutation of property online
As per a recent decision, which Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee called revolutionary, the process of granting of mutation of a property has been made online. As a result, mutation certificates would be issued within 48 hours.
A recent cabinet meeting (December 24) headed by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee made the decision, which is another major step in the State Government’s gradual easing of property-related rules and transactions.
In all property transactions, mutation, or transfer of title, is a mandatory process, in which the buyer transfers the ownership title of the property he just bought.
The Chief Minister said that around 12 lakh people in Bangla get their properties mutated every year, and hence the making online of the system is a big scope for common people to get their work done with ease. The process of online mutation will also help in keeping the character of the land unchanged.
The new process of getting mutation done online consists of the following basic steps:
- Applicant to log in and register his/her name and other details
- Documents to be uploaded
- Mutation fees to be paid through bank
- Land & Land Reforms Dept will get the information online and verify the uploaded documents
- Mutation certificate to be issued within 48 hours
It may be mentioned that through the Records of Rights system introduced by the Trinamool Congress Government, land records in all 341 blocks of the State have been digitised.
