HYDERABAD:  Registration offices may soon remain open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. if the pilot project of the Telangana Registration and Stamps Department yields good results.

The department is planning to keep open registration offices from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m in a bid to help people seeking to register sale deeds, gift deeds, development agreement-cum-general power of attorney besides societies and marriages among others.

“Right now, registration offices are running from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and these timings coincide with office timings for most of the people in the city. If they have to register their land or property or need any other registration service, they will have to apply for leave or forego other works. If registration office timings are extended, it will help many,” explained M Venkata Rajesh, Joint Inspector General of Registration and Stamps Department.

Besides, it will also ease the rush at registration offices. Initially, the new timings will be implemented at sub-registrar offices at Bowenpally and Marredpally in the city. Two shifts will be introduced to make sure that the new system works effectively. The officials have worked out the modalities and sent the proposal for the final nod of their higher-ups. Needless to say people end up spending the whole day at sub-registrar offices due to the various procedures involved. More often than not, they are forced to return the next day too or if unlucky, again and again.
