Mangaluru, Feb 8: “The department of registration has last week announced that they will implement Kaveri 2.0 software for the registration of documents in Mangaluru taluq, sub-registrar office. The registration department has not so far given the demonstration of the software. The general public is not aware about the contents of the software," said the president of Prithviraj Rai president of the Mangalore Bar Association.
He speaking at the press club here on Wednesday, February 8.
He also said that the registration of documents involves several activities like scrutinizing the title, payment of consideration, payment of the registration fee, payment of stamp duty, signature of the parties, etc.
He further said, “The proposed software is unknown and several questions relating to its performance are unanswered. Without publishing the contents of the software, without proper demonstration of its working, without disclosing the details, the details about the payment system, if Kaveri 2.0 is implemented, the public at large will be in a situation where in they will find it very difficult to adjust to the new system. It is also pertinent to note that the procedure for quick refund of the wrongly paid amount is not clear.
“Therefore, instead of implementing the new system in a hurry, it is better to educate, train and make aware of the procedure to the general public,” he said.
He also demanded that until the groundwork is done, the present system should prevail.
General secretary of Mangalore Bar Association Eshwar Kottary, Shridhar Enmakaje, and Vikram Paduvetnaya were present during the press meet.
