To curb property frauds, Goa government to use Aadhaar
Resident as well as non-resident Goans will soon be able to keep track of their ancestral property and take steps to prevent fraudulent sale of their land once the state government implements an Aadhaar-based system which will send alerts regarding transactions about the linked properties.
“Regarding property, we are getting into a service to give Aadhaar-based alerts which is voluntary,” revenue minister Rohan Khaunte said on Monday during the discussion on the demand for grants for departments headed by him. “We expect the property owner to give his phone number and email id and if anyone comes forward to perform a transaction with the land, other than the owner, the owner will get an SMS and email.”
Given the controversy about implementation of Aadhaar, Khaunte said the linking of Aadhaar to property to avail the service would be purely voluntary.
“It is in the interest of Goenkar and those abroad. This will take care of all the frauds,” the minister said.
