In 2001 I have joined as the municipal commissioner, Bhainsa. At that time the Revenue coming out of the staamp duty was only 0.98 Lakhs.In any way it was much less than expected. I started knowing about way of increasing the stamp duty. At later stages, in the municipalities of Nirmal, Suryapet and Khammam, I have contributed much for the increased Revenue from the stamp duty.
Situation before initiative in Bhainsa:
1.All the house numbers of the town was not included in Urban Basic Register.
2.The values of lands of slum areas were more than posh localities.
3.There were no rationality in adopting the land values.
4.Number of Registrations were less due to high values of lands and leased lands.
5.Some land values in the posh localities was less.
6 . Agriculture land values were also less.
Situation before initiative in Nirmal:
1.All the house numbers were not included in the Urban Basic Register.
2. The value of the land on the two sides of a road is not similar.
3. The lands converted into the plots, but same was not included in the UBR.
4.The values of the Agriculture lands were less.
Situation before initiative in Suryapet:
1.All the house numbers were not included in the UBR.
2 . The lands converted into the plots were not included in the UBR.
Situation before initiative in Khammam:
1.The land values were hiked without rationality. There was a resentment from people. Government ordered for anomalies.
In order to set right the things related to the Registration values, I had to represent the district officers for one and half hears repeatedly.Fortunately,Sri. Mukhteshwar Rao has assumed charge of joint Collector and act as chairman of the Land values committee.As usual I represented the fact to him.There was presence of an active District Registrar and Assistant District Registrar. They assured me to set the things in the right direction. They intimated the subregistrar to co-operate.
Consequently, I was handed overed a soft copy of the proformae. At that time, work was comparitively less. I was able to sit on the same work for 7 days, duly doing other works.It gave a immense pleasure, when I completed the work.It also made me efficient to increase the Revenue of the ULB.Also, once I have also taken a orientation class to all the municipal commissioners of the warangal region.
In the Nirmal, the subregistrar was an experienced person.He was after me to implement the market value reforms. In this place I was little busy.He has taken the interest with the help of my experience.
Initiatives are as follows :
1.The land values of the slum areas were not increased.
2.All the houses numbers were included in the UBR and right values were adopted for them.
3.The Land values for agricultural lands were increased as per market value.
4.The land values of the newly made plots were included as fit for house sites.
1.All the new numbers were included in the UBR.
2.All the commercial house numbers were identified and included in the UBR.
3.All the lands values on the same road was equalised.
4.All the lands converted into the plots were identified and adopted the minimum fit for house site value.
5.Land values of the Agriculture lands were increased offerdably.
All the above initiatives were implemented in suryapet.
The abnormally increased values were decreased.The subregistrars was worrying to decrease the values.But I have taken initiative to decrease basing on the realistic values.
1.The stamp duty was increased from 0.98 lakhs in 2001 to 7.50 lakhs per quarter in 2005.
2.The number of Registrations were increased, especially of poor.
3.Streamlined the total registration system and illegal mutations were stopped. The problem of purchase of house on a unregistered deed and forcing municipal officials to mutation is stopped . Actually, people also suffer in this procedure.
1.The stamp duty per quarter was doubled.
1.The stamp duty was substantially increased.
1.The resentment in the people have decreased.
2.The stamp duty started increased slowly.
3.The stalemate conditions of Land purchases has come to an end.
