Chennai high court slam the registration department

Slamming Registration department officials for registering an extent of immovable property without verifying all documents executed in the office of the Sub-Registrar, the High Court Chennai in its judgment on an appeal, observed: “If such unworthy officers are allowed to deal with properties, it would not only help the avaricious clients to come with their stakes and ‘claims', like the case on hand, but also the innocent purchasers would fall prey to them, losing their life savings and even life in litigation and ultimately faith in the entire system, which would erode the roots of our democracy. The inefficient scrutiny of documents or purposefully omitting efficient scrutiny of the documents by the concerned, resulting in registration of documents by the officials at the Registrar office in order to pave the way for unscrupulous persons to register their illegal and fictitious transactions, is also one of the reasons for docket explosion in legal fora. Therefore, it is right time that such black sheep in the Registration Department are dealt with iron hand.”
