In a shocking incident, over 11,000 property registration documents have gone missing from the Telangana's state data centre of the revenue department.
According to reports, this came to light, when the department was digitizing district-wise property records.
A report in Deccan Chronicle adds that "Ranga Reddy district topped the state with 3,995 missing documents, followed by Karimnagar with 2,450 documents and Nizambad 2,360. The other districts include Nalgonda (990), Warangal (650), Khammam (400), Medak (300), Mahbubnagar (250), Hyderabad (110). In Adilabad, only 15 documents were missing."
"All the missing documents must be traced because the state government is planning to extend the facility of â€˜Anywhere Registrationâ€™ to the entire state. Without records, it would be difficult to launch the initiative. In a way, these missing documents are blocking this initiative," an official of the revenue department, told the newspaper.
The collectors have been asked to trace the missing documents, as they are also necessary to issue an Encumbrance Certificate.
