Local Member of Parliament Kirron Kher today chaired a meeting of an 11-member committee to review the process of sanction of mutation, grant of occupancy certificate, no-objection certificate and other citizen-centric requirements via videoconferencing with members.

The members of the panel discussed pivotal issues such as streamlining the process of mutation of property through sale deed, transfer of lease rights by sale, grant of no-objection certificate and certificate of unearned profit under the 1973 and 2007 Rules.

The committee also discussed issues such as unearned increase for transferring society flats and other properties, charging of the GST by the Chandigarh Housing Board and transfer of flats in case of GPA holders. Deputy Commissioner Mandip Singh Brar shared the progress of digitisation of the Estate Office with the MP.

The 11-member committee includes the Mayor, Deputy Commissioner, CEO, Chandigarh Housing Board, Chief Architect, Senior Standing Counsel, Secretary, Chandigarh Housing Board, Assistant Estate Officer, Municipal Corporation, Estate Officer, Finance and Planning Officer and Arun Sood, councillor.

The committee has been constituted on the direction of the Supreme Court to streamline the process of sanction of mutation, grant of occupancy certificate, no-objection certificate and other citizen-centric requirement,s including calculation of unearned profit under the 1973 or 2007 Rules.

A Bench of Justices Hemant Gupta and AS Bopana observed, “Residents of Chandigarh are widely harassed while seeking a no-objection certificate for the sale of leasehold property as the procedure for its grant and of deposit of unearned increase is interpreted in different manners by different officials, which the Administration has failed to control.”

“The committee shall submit its report to the Administrator and the Chandigarh Administration, preferably within three months. We hope that the Administrator will take appropriate steps to implement the suggestions made by the committee, including forwarding of the proposed amendments to the statute to the Ministry of Home Affairs, if any, suggested by the committee,” the Bench stated.
