Authorities say total of Rs 31 L worth stamp duty was defrauded by submitting fake challans
After identifying that irregularities to the tune of Rs 8 crore have taken place in the transactions taken up by Sub-Registrar offices in various parts of the State, the officials launched an inquiry.
The Telangana High Court directed the state government to begin a survey immediately to identify its lands in all 33 districts and take steps for protecting them.
It was found that majority of the document writers had influenced SROs by offering them regular mamools and in return, were getting disputed lands, prohibited lands and government lands registered.
There are a lot of irregularities in the department in the past 10 years and we're are not trying to seal anything, he said.
There are 142 Sub-Registrar Offices across the State, which received thousands of registration applications online for the month of June, as it has several auspicious dates.
