Benefits of Property Aadhaar System:-

More Transparency

With a property Aadhaar system, it may perhaps be the most transparent property transaction system, as every property would have an identity! It would become easy to verify whether a particular person is the owner of the property by locating any title deeds and particulars of the property to eliminate fraud and corruption in the real estate market.

Streamlined Transactions

It would greatly ease the property transactions of various buyers, sellers and government authorities where property’s detailed records could be kept in a centralised property database. It will facilitate speedy approval and entry of properties into the market and help in the verification of property ownership and registration.

Curbing Benami Transactions

Aadhaar based property system can curb property benami transactions whereby some persons purchase properties in the fake names, mostly for effecting tax evasion. It could deter such illegitimate actions that could be perilous to the householders by linking the properties to the owners with the use of an ID number.

Efficient Urban Planning:

The property Aadhaar system will maintain records for the properties and it will be useful for city planners and policymakers. The property statistics are therefore important for the informed decision making and issues such as development of infrastructure, land use planning and allocation of resources ultimately leading to the creation of more sustainable and well-organised cities

Challenges and Considerations:

Privacy and Data Security:

Holding property data also possess some issues mainly in the aspect of privacy since certain measures have to be put in place to ensure that the privacy of the property data is not breached or the information is not compromised.

Comprehensive Database Development:

Implementation of a detailed national register of all properties or assets requires a significant expenditure on technology, infrastructure and manpower. However, there lies another challenge of ensuring the accuracy and credibility of the collected data.

Legal and Regulatory Framework:

Introducing the Property Aadhaar system will require revisions to existing laws, regulations, and administrative procedures governing property ownership and transactions. It is essential to harmonise these legal frameworks and address regulatory barriers to facilitate the smooth integration of the Property Aadhaar system

Inclusivity and Accessibility:

Ensuring that the benefits of the property Aadhaar system are available to all segments of society, including urban and rural areas, is paramount.

By emphasising the importance of identity in today’s world and integrating the Aadhaar system in the Indian economy, the property sector can be highly influenced and improved. Despite these concerns over privacy, cumbersome implementation, legal barriers, and the general exclusion of certain groups, more effort must be made to optimize its possibilities.

Thus, the adoption of the right strategy could transform the Indian real estate ecosystem for a better future by allowing Aadhaar-based system implementation on properties.
