The Reality Of E-Property Pass Book (EPPB) being thrown about in the news as the surgical strike on real estate and a step against corruption. This comes after the step of demonetization to counter black money in India.

To debunk the news, presently, the housing department does not have the kind of infrastructure needed to bring about such a change. and more importantly this requires the digitization of the registration offices in every little part of the nation which seems quite impossible when some of the villages don’t even have electricity connection. Also, even the Minister of Urban Development Mr. Venkaiah Naidu has claimed that it is just a rumour and there is no such thing being planned by the government.
