Bhubaneswar: In a move which will drastically simplify & streamline land & property related transactions, people in Odisha can now get land documents including sale deeds within one hour of registration at the sub-registrar offices across the State.
Informing about the new process, Revenue Secretary, Pradipta Mohapatra on Friday informed that district collectors, sub-collectors and other administrative officials have been directed to clear all pendency by February 5 so that the department can be brought under the purview of ‘Mo Sarkar’ initiative by February 10.
