How to Register Property online in Andhra Pradesh?

The Andhra Pradesh government has recently launched an online portal called PRIMME for registration of real-estate properties online. The stamps and registration department aims to ensure hassle-free registrations in a phased manner from 1st September 2023.

The online property registration initiative has been named as – ‘Computer-Aided Administration of Registration Department-Property Rights Mutation Made Easy’ (CAD-PRIMME).

The online property registration facility is expected to be implemented at all 294 sub-registrar offices of AP and at 2,000 village/ward secretariats in a phased manner. This process is expected to be completed by 15th September, 2023.

As per the existing registration procedure – the citizens have to visit the sub-registrar offices and fill up applications for varied services manually. The property buyers have to make payments manually through demand drafts or bank challanas.

New Online Property Registration Facility in Andhra Pradesh

  • The property buyers can now fill the application form and the standardized deed documents (Sale Deed/Gift/Mortgage Deed) and submit them online.
  • The users can provide and upload the details of all the Linked documents of the concerned property.
  • One can pay the Stamp duty and Registration charges online.
  • Based on the Application ID, the citizens can book the Property Registration slot at any Sub-Registrar office and get the registration done.
  • The Sub-registrar office will then check the online application for the correctness of the data entered and either Accept/reject the document or they may ask the parties to change the document details.
  • Once the Registrar accepts the online document, he/she signs the document electronically and the parties will get the scanned copies of the registered property online on their email-Id.
  • The only manual procedure that’s involved in this process is – the Sellers and the buyers of the property have to personally visit the Sub-Registrar office (or) Village Secretariat on the day of registration (slot) and give their bio-metrics (eKYC).
  • If the registered property is an agricultural land, the state govt has taken steps to get the auto-mutation done. There is no need for the buyer of the land to visit the concerned revenue office (or) tahsildar office to get the mutation done. (The auto-mutation facility may soon be extended to other type of properties as well.)
