According to sources, the Delhi government is preparing to open five more sub-registrar offices in the city due to the growing workload and rise in property registrations.

There are currently 22 sub-registrar offices in the city, but the Government is planning to increase this number to 27.

The concerned minister Atishi Singh, has received a request from the revenue department for the opening of five additional sub-registrar offices. If approved, the new offices will ease the burden on the current offices and hasten the process of registering properties, according to a top Delhi government official.

To assist people in completing documentation, it has also been suggested to engage staff to manage the helpdesk at the sub-registrar offices.

The sub-registrar offices of the revenue department at the district level are in charge of registering real estate purchases and sales, deeds, and presents involving sizable sums. The government receives a significant portion of its income from the stamp duty levied on paperwork.

Due to the number of property registrations and other official tasks, several of the sub-registrar offices are overburdened. The five new sub-registrar offices that are being planned to open include ones in busy areas like Janakpuri, Model Town, and Kashmere Gate.

The Registration Act of 1908, that regulates document registration, permits the establishment of new sub-registrar offices. 2.33 lakh documents were registered by the current sub-registrar offices in the year 2020. According to officials, the figure rose to 3.33 lakh in 2021 and 3.69 lakh in 2022.
