The high court on July 3, 2023 issued the order following a PIL filed by one Okram Nutankumar Singh.

The Manipur Regulation of Sale Deed Registration (Amendment) Rules, 2023 rescinds the need for permanent residence certificates, police verification, and approval by a Cabinet Sub- Committee, replacing them with verification from local bodies.

In a letter written to the commissioner (Revenue) by the advocate, who is also the counsel of the petitioner of the PIL, stated that several Sub-Registrar offices in Manipur have not adhered to this directive and continue to follow the repealed procedures, causing undue hardship to the public who are compelled to follow these obsolete and cumbersome procedures.

The letter requested the commissioner to issue necessary order to all Sub-Registrar offices in Manipur, directing them to comply with the High Court’s order and the new regulations stipulated in the Manipur Regulation of Sale Deed Registration (Amendment) Rules, 2023, at the earliest.

Ensuring timely compliance will not only uphold the rule of law but also alleviate the inconvenience faced by the citizens due to the continued application of outdated procedures, the letter added.
