Hyderabad: The Telangana government has launched a survey/enrolment of non-agricultural properties in gram panchayats, municipalities and municipal corporations, including the GHMC limits, to update details on the Dharani portal for issue of non-agricultural pass books. This exercise can be completed at GHMC citizen service centres, Meeseva or logging into the meeseva link.
GHMC has appealed to citizens to enroll their property details, Aadhaar card number and perform EKYC against their properties by visiting GHMC citizen service centres, Mee Seva or by visiting the ts.meeseva.telangana.gov.in website. Before commencing the exercise, one has to keep the Aadhaar card, property tax receipt, water connection number, electricity bill, plot area, undivided share in case of residential flat and other details close by, as these details will have to be uploaded onto the portal. One can upload the details over the Meeseva portal and it hardly takes a few minutes to complete the entire exercise.
The Municipal Administration and Panchayat Raj departments have instructed their municipal and gram panchayat staff to collect details and upload them through a dedicated application (TS NAB) by visiting each and every household in their respective civic body limits. As per guidelines and user guide, gender, caste, Aadhaar and mobile number are mandatory.
The government announced that the exercise was being taken up to update or register un-assessed properties, which were not in the municipal or panchayat records. However, officials of both departments are updating details of even assessed property records as many have not updated their property details like mutations (by issuing a temporary PTIN).
Since the data will be used for even property registration purposes, details like Aadhaar number, family members, owner or joint owners’ photographs, pattadar passbook details are being collected. Apart from them, details like property usage, plot survey number, extent, undivided area and built up area are to be incorporated in the records.
The enumerator will seek pattadar passbook details of the owner, if he/she does not have any passbooks, food security card, or Jan Dhan account or Aasara pension or MGNREGA job card should be collected. The municipal and panchayat staff have been asked to collect details of power connection and water connection details. On successful submission of all details, an authentication acknowledgement will be issued. Later, after verification and confirmation of all the details uploaded by the user, non-agricultural passbook will be issued to the owner, GHMC Zonal Commissioner V Mamatha said.
