National Generic Document Registration System

  • In the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha launched the National Generic Document Registration System (NGDRS).
  • NGDRS represents a major shift from the existing manual registration system to online registration of all transactions in sale-purchase and transfer of land.
  • Stamp papers have been replaced by e-stamps which have been incorporated in coordination with Stockholding Corporation of India.
  • J&K will be the 10th among States and UTs to become part of NGDRS.
  • The entire process has been reduced to 15 minutes which earlier would take several days in view of multiple steps involved.
  • The launching of NGDRS is a big step towards National Integration and a leap towards ‘One Nation One Software’.
