A Month On, Ggn Awaits Its Second District Registrar | Gurgaon News – Times of India


GURUGRAM: The city is yet to get a second district registrar, over a month after chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar announced that two DRs will be appointed soon.
The state government appointed Rajesh Khera last week – previously the deputy director of district industries centre in Bhiwani – as one of the district registrars, relieving Sanjit Kaur, the Bahadurgarh DR who held the additional charge of Gurugram . Until now, the city had just one district registrar.
Officials from the district administration said on Tuesday the government is working to fill the vacant post and the process will be completed soon. “There was no district registrar in Gurugram and the official, who was looking after the district was on additional charge along with the charge of Bahadurgarh. With the repeated demand from the residents complaining about pending matters in the office of district registrar, the government has recently appointed a full time district registrar, who will ensure the smooth functioning of RWAs in the city and timely redressal of their grievances. The appointment of the second district registrar is already in the process and it will be completed soon,” said Gurugram deputy commissioner Nishant Kumar.
According to an official who spoke on the condition of anonymity, there is a shortage of officials in the department of industries and commerce (under which district registrars are appointed) and the delay is because of bureaucratic approvals.
The principal secretary of the industries and commerce department Vijayendra Kumar could not be reached for comment on Tuesday.
The district registrar is important for the functioning of RWAs in the city. Registering societies, addressing grievances of residents and ensuring that the Haryana Registrations and Regulation of Societies (HRRS) Act, 2012, is followed are among the duties of a DR. After complaints, CM Khattar had announced on April 29 that the city will appoint two registrars to streamline the work.
Residents, however, said having two district registrars won’t make much of a difference.“Real change can only be seen on the ground when the government changes the proposed amendments in Haryana Registrations and Regulation of Societies Act, 2012,” said Gaurav Kalra, a resident who was part of a panel that suggested amendments to the Act last year.
