Aadhaar card: IGR to roll out digital locker from June

IGR officials, who were closely working with the National Informatics Centre, said the digilocker system enables department transfer of documents that will save a lot of time and paper work.


The Inspectorate General of Registration and Stamps department is all set to initiate the digital locker system for e-registration where an individual will be able to save the agreement copy of the property, Index II as well as the receipt in a soft format on the centre’s digital locker.The digital locker can only be operated if one has an Aadhaar card. With the Aadhaar coverage having increased in the state, the department is ready to roll out the services soon.

“The process will be initiated by next month which will enable the person to keep these documents on his/her name based on the Aadhaar number.With almost 80-90 per cent coverage in most districts in the state, we should be able to initiate the process by next month,” stated officials from the Inspectorate General of Registration and Stamps.

The digital locker system will make it easier for people to store, retrieve and share these documents with other agencies safely. Officials from the IGR department said that the department will be the first to link e-registration with the digital locker.

The Aadhaar-linked DigiLocker is part of the centre’s ambitious digital India scheme, which will enable people to safe-keep their documents such as those related to address, identity, education and property in a paperless format in the repository’s free storage space. The system will enable people and agencies to push these documents into the locker and share them electronically.

IGR officials, who were closely working with the National Informatics Centre, said the digilocker system enables department transfer of documents that will save a lot of time and paper work. The officials said that once the registration is completed using the UIDAI card, they will automatically send the papers to the digital locker and eventually they will be able to retrieve them.

The main aim of this process is that it will reduce the dependence on physical documentation. The department has stated that apart from leave and licence documents, people can register first sale of flats by developers and MHADA allotment letters.

The department of registration and stamps is gradually making it mandatory for executors of leave and licence documents to go in for e-registration at empanelled service providers by doing away with manual registration at its offices. Officials said the Aadhaar-based e-registration will help people file documents at their convenience.
