Panchkula:Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) is all set to go paperless from 2017. The Panchkula estate office following the plans of the department will be the first in the state to go paperless, once the process is implemented.
The department is all set to implement the project in January .
For implementation of the project, HUDA has got the entire property record of Panchkula; commercial and residential, digitised for which a private company was hired. Sharing details of the project, Panchkula estate officer (EO) Virat said that all the files will be moved in electronic mode right from the dealing hand to highest decision-making authority.
At present, all the files in estate office are created and moved manually. The process of availing various services such as property registration, property transfer, mortgage of property etc consumes a lot of time and is marred by red-tape.
“The system will create simplified, responsive, effective and transparent working environment. It will definitely improve the time of delivery of services,” said Virat.
Explaining the system, the EO said that after receiving an application from a resident for availing any service, the dealing hand official will put up noting in e-forms.
