Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh government has announced on Thursday that all urban properties in Uttar Pradesh will now be linked to the Aadhaar cards of the owners.
As per reports, the scheme is reportedly being implemented on the initiative of K. V. Raju, financial advisor to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
The government is gearing up to implement the Urban Properties Ownership Record (UPOR) Scheme, on the pattern of Karnataka.
Municipal Corporations lacks data of property ownership within their Municipal limits, which often leads to legal disputes. The government hope that such an initiative will bring transparency in work and will avoid confusion.
“This scheme will help in identifying ‘benami’ properties, multiple properties and will also increase tax collection in Municipal Corporations,” said a senior official.
