To prevent frauds in purchase of property in Haryana, ‘intkal’ (mutation) of a house or plot will be done along with registry.

Giving directions to this effect on Saturday, the Chief Minister (CM) Manohar Lal Khattar said now, intkal would also be done along with the registry of plot or house to prevent any fraud.

Apart from this, if any land is acquired than the responsibility of registry of intkal would be of the concerned department for not issuing it and in case of any fraud in future, the CM said.

He also clarified that if registry of any land is done wrongly or lack of related documents, then the concerned Tehsildar would be responsible and no negligence should be exercised in such cases.

Khattar also announced that fare meter would be installed on auto rickshawas running in the state to prevent any fraud with passengers.

Addressing the grievances of the people in the meeting of District Grievances Committee in Gurugram, the CM directed officers to send a proposal to Transport Department for the installation of fare meters on auto-rickshaws so that passengers do not face any problem.

He said that all registered auto rickshaws running in the state would be installed with fare meters. These instructions were issued following complaints received regarding higher fare in autorickshaws.

Khattar said that the capacity of ferrying passengers should also be taken care of, as many a times auto rickshaw drivers ferry more than its actual capacity. He directed to impound the auto rickshaw of those drivers who are running it without registration number and in case the driver is less than 18 years of age. It was informed in the meeting that last year, 3,68,467 challans were issued, in which 2,577 autorickshaws were also impounded.

The CM also ordered to suspend the concerned executive engineer (Xen) of Haryana State Agricultural Marketing Board in complaint regarding use of substandard material for the road constructed last year in September and October from Basatpur to Kapdiwas and Chandu to Gadi Gopalpur.

The roads were inspected by the technical advisor of the CM and deficiencies were found in gradation of materials.
