The vacation of party-revenue practitioners has also been spoiled by to reduce token slots of government from top level
Howeover, amidst the chaos of the old and new jantri, parties-lawyers, who purchased stamp paper worth crores of rupees as per the old jantri have reduced appointment token slots for registration of property documents in sub registrar offices across the state including Surat. With the increase in the practitioner’s troubles, the summer vacation schedule has also been disrupted.
Additionally, people across the state, including Surat, have lined up to get the property documents registered as per the old Jantri rate before the new Jantri rate becomes effective. The government gave an interim relief for document registration as per the old schedule by giving a final deadline of April 15.
So there was a huge crowd of people for document registration. So, for the purpose of reducing the rush of the parties, the daily average of 37 tokens was increased by the State Superintendent of Stamp Office to 54, but the number of tokens was increased to 70 as the rush did not decrease.
Lastly, after the documents of the parties were registered by the Government of Gujarat, the outsourcing agency was assigned the task of scanning the documents and returning them to the parties on the next day.
Although, but the agency delays the work due to which the coordination link of the entire sub-registrar’s office has been disrupted, and the role of the agency has been criticized as villainous. It is to be noted here that, after the government had earlier shown the way out to two agencies from Surat district, now it remains to be seen how it will work with the Surat agency.
