We had purchased a property in MYsore and we wanted to register the same. We first called subregistrar office and got list of documents that we had to furnish for registration including exact amount for stamp duty and registration fee.
Myself and my brother went to sub registrar office will all the documents. This was in Dec 2009. I had taken all the DD required for stamp duty and registration fee. Sub registrar told us that they typically charge 1%, but for us they will settle for 0.5 % of bribe. Guidance value of property was 40 lakhs and we were buying and registering for 68.75 lakhs. In fact, he got us coffee also. I told him that we dont pay any extra amount in any govt office and that Demand draft for stamp paper and registration is attached to the application. Immediately, he threw the file to next desk and said there is problem in form 9 which needs to be corrected and stopped talking to us. We immediately asked him to either register or give a letter indicating reason as to why you are not registering the property. He had no choice, but with pain he got our property registered without taking any bribe.
If you insist on official letter for not doing task, they will be forced to do their job. But, ensure that all documents are 100% in place.
