Mysuru: The disruption in services at the Sub-Registrar Offices in the last few days on account of running out of stock of paper, printer cartridges and other computer peripherals ended today with services returning to normal this morning.
The Commissioner of Stamps and Registration yesterday permitted the authorities to procure the essential stationeries locally, following which the authorities in Mysuru purchased the articles from Janatha Bazar on credit basis, according to sources.
Services had been affected across many Sub-Registrar offices in Mysuru District over the last few weeks after the State Government’s contract with HCL Infosystems, a private agency, for computerised registration expired on Mar. 31.
Though the contract ended in Feb. 2019, the Department managed to convince the private agency to extend the contract till March end. But as the contract was not renewed beyond Mar. 31, the Sub-Registrar Offices in the district faced short supply of stationery and other computer peripherals and ultimately ran out of stocks, leading to disruption of services.
But now, with the Department allowing local purchase of stationeries and computer peripherals, the services at the Sub-Registrar offices have been restored from today, much to the relief of the public.
