Karnataka government's online property portal 'E-Swathu' hacked

IAS officer Trilok Chandra, who is currently inspector-general of stamps and registrations, lodged a complaint with cybercrime police suspecting corruption as well as violation of protocol pertaining to E-Swathu.

E-Swathu, the state government’s ambitious programme geared at eliminating forgeries in property-related transactions including registrations in illegal layouts, appears to have been breached.

IAS officer Trilok Chandra, who is currently inspector-general of stamps and registrations, lodged a complaint with cybercrime police suspecting corruption as well as violation of protocol pertaining to E-Swathu.

The scheme aims to provide clarity on the nature of land and ownership details of properties in rural areas. Preliminary investigation revealed at least 20 sub-registrar offices in Bengaluru are part of the scam.

Through the E-Swathu portal, people can obtain Forms 9 and 11.

While Form 9 is known as A khata and created by respective gram panchayats for non-agricultural properties under their domain, Form 11 is created for nonagricultural properties. Both these forms are mandatory for registration of non-agricultural properties that fall under gram panchayats.

According to sources, data have been tampered to the extent that sale deeds have been turned into sale agreements without the knowledge of property owners, sources said.

In some cases, miscreants have tampered with property descriptions, sources added.
