MCC launches e-Aasthi to digitise property records

November 15, 2023

Mandatory for all property owners; To sanitise revenue records, make it tamper-proof

Mysore/Mysuru: The Mysuru City Corporation’s (MCC) initiative, e-Aasthi, where property documents are digitised to ensure greater transparency, has been launched in all Wards and the officers are going house-to-house handing out forms/notices, seeking information and documents from the property owners.

The project aims to simplify services of the civic body’s revenue wing, sanitise revenue records, bring in transparency and accountability, streamline tax collection, end illegal transactions and cut out touts and middlemen. e-Aasthi can be used to update property transactions like sale, inheritance, partition, gift, Will, land acquisition and Khata amalgamation or Khata bifurcation. While MCC’s garbage collection vehicles are making announcements when they collect waste from homes in the morning regarding e-Aasthi, officers are visiting individual houses to distribute the forms where the owners are expected to fill in the details and submit them along with relevant documents. 

Mandatory for UPOR PID number holders too

MCC Additional Commissioner M.J. Roopa told Star of Mysore this morning that e-Aasthi is mandatory to all property owners coming under MCC and the jurisdiction of MUDA (Mysuru Urban Development Authority) and the e-Aasthi for revenue properties will be taken up in the next phase.

“Even those property owners who have registered under UPOR (Urban Property Ownership Record) and having a UPOR Property Identification Number (PID Number) must freshly register in e-Aasthi,” she said. While UPOR records do not have comprehensive details about properties, the e-Aasthi is much more efficient, online and tamper-proof system where the records are stored in State Server (Aasthi Kanaja) and local certificates, property records and other documents are issued only after confirmation from the Aasthi Kanaja, Roopa added.

Officers said that with e-Aasthi, a citizen can avail many features and benefits such as automation of property transactions, applications or requests can be tracked online, end to illegal transactions, reduction in property disputes, easy access to digital property records, fast access to loans due to easy authentication of property documents, invalidation of wrongly created Khata, integration of property tax details, integration with GIS software and automatic initiation of mutation without human intervention.
