PWC, KPMG to scrutinise Punjab property registrations

Chandigarh, Sep 9 : The Punjab government has engaged services of two leading private consultancies to scrutinize the documents regarding property registrations in the state, a minister said Monday.

The revenue department has hired PricewaterhouseCoopers and KPMG to scrutinize the documents regarding property registrations in 12 tehsils in last one year to ascertain whether these were registered as per prescribed norms of the state government, Revenue Minister Bikram Singh Majithia said in Jalandhar, 160 km from here.

Majithia told media persons that the initiative was aimed at ensuring total transparency in the revenue department working.

He said that nearly 150,000 property registrations would be scrutinized in this process.

"We have taken the initiative to weed out corruption in the revenue department. In case of any wrong doing, the concerned official would have to face the music," Majithia said.

The Punjab government introduced the Right to Service Act in the state last year to curb the red-tapism and harassment of general public in government offices besides making the bureaucracy accountable to provide all government services in a time-bound manner, he added.
