Punjab does away with NOC for registration of plot deeds

Press Trust of India  |  Chandigarh 

Punjab government today decided to do away with the requirement to procure NOC from the Housing and Urban Development department or municipal authorities for registration of plot deeds in unauthorised residential and commercial developments in the state.

Plot and building owners in unauthorised developments can now submit a self declaration averring they have submitted the necessary fee to regularise their property following which the sale deed of the same can be registered, an official spokesman said here adding that this new system had been notified.

A decision to this effect was taken by Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal after the issue of long delays being experienced by the people to procure NOCs was brought to his notice by Revenue minister Bikram Singh Majithia, he said.

According to the present practice people wanting to sell their plot or building in an unauthorised colony have to approach Punjab Urban Development Authority (PUDA) in case it is outside city limits or the necessary Corporation or Committee in urban limits and procure an NOC stating they have submitted the required fee to regularise their property.

"This NOC, which lists the amount paid by them including a receipt, is then submitted to the registration authority in case sale of the property has to be affected," the spokesman said.
