The Problem: The earlier manual process of keeping and indexing records was found to be highly inefficient, which would lead to corruption and harassment of people.

The Solution: A web application called `PRERNA’ (Property Evaluation and Registration Application) was developed, which followed computerization of the property valuation and registration process.

The Result: Scanning of documents has made electronic searches possible. Registered instruments can be returned the same day within hours of submitting. Citizens are now less dependent on middlemen and the number of registered documents has also increased a lot. Out of the total throughput of 26 million citizens and 28.5 lakh deeds in 2012-13, twelve million citizens and 13.26 lac deeds made use of the computerized system. Circle rates are now standardized in the state and published on the website, along with index registers. Five people were involved in the core team. Thumb impressions and photographs of applicants are now captured electronically. Windows XP, Visual Studio, SQL Server 2005 and Crystal Reports make up the core technologies that were used in developing the current version of PRERNA. The computerization of the valuation process (including registration fees, transfer fees, etc) is said to have increased the state’s revenue substantially.
