The Karnataka government, in November 2018, launched the Kaveri Online Services portal. The portal’s primary aim is to make the registration process for encumbrance certificate (EC) easier for the people of the state. When an individual wants to obtain an EC, they can simply log in to the portal and enter the details of the purchased or rented property. The online process makes it easier for individuals to upload documents on the website along with the application form. The application will then be sent to the sub-registrar for further formalities. You can also access the portal to check and verify present owners of a property and the legitimacy of the registered documents.
