Importance of NGDRS 

NGDRS or National Generic Document Registration System has heralded a new era in the process of registration of documents. NGDRS application is specially designed and developed for the use of Government sub registrars, citizens, and highly placed users from the registration departments of the states. 

NGDRS allows the states to customize a state-specific instance and alter/configure the NGDRS software as per requirements. NGDRS Offers a complete and easy to access user interface for property and document registration. NGDRS application enables the citizens to proceed with land buying and registration online. They can find out the Ready reckoner rate or circle rate for land, estimate property valuation as per prevailing rates in the area and comprehend the type of land. 

NGDRS allows citizens to decide about the type of land purchase. As transactions related to prohibited properties are not allowed for sale, such as tribal land, mortgaged land, and government land etc. This information is also available to the citizens, which helps them decide where and what type of land they must consider.

In addition to this, citizens can apply online for property document submission, make an instant online payment, and take online appointments for physical verification. With the help of NGDRS, property buyers are required to visit the sub-registrar’s office (SRO) only once and that too at the scheduled time of final signing and registration. This entire workflow of NGDRS has not only proved beneficial for citizens but has also enhanced the productivity of the government department staff.
