Details Difficulty ●      Since there was no legal cover for online repository and verification of the digitized documents, businesses were facing difficulty for physical verification of the registered property as it was a cumbersome and time consuming process.
Analysis ●      There was a need to amend the Registration Act, 1908 so as to allow the automation and online verification of the registered property.
Solution  ●      Accordingly, the Government of KP preceded the Government of Punjab and Balochistan in amending the property registration law i.e., Registration Act, 1908 and  now electronic verification is permissible.
