  • The discharge deed is applicable if MODT is registered with bank. Few banks just collect the title documents and don’t do MODT registration. For such cases, just collect back the title documents from bank after clearning the MODT dues. Discharge deed is not applicable.
  • The Discharge deed should register in sub-registrar's office within 90 days from the day bank hand over the discharge deed to you.
  • Register the Discharge deed in the same sub-registrar office where the MODT was registered
  • Property owner presence is mandatory in sub-registrar office to do discharge deed. The presence of bank’s representative is not mandatory to do discharge deed, (Just the NOC from bank is sufficient)
  • If you are not physically present to do discharge deed, you may give power of attoreny. Your POA holder can collect title documents from bank and do discharge deed registration
  • K2 challan is valid for 7 days from the day of challan generation hence complete the payment within 7 days. You have options to pay by netbanking, card, UPI, and cash.
  • K2 challan is valid for 90 from the day of payment, hence complete the registration within 90 days from the day of challan payment
  • Immediately after the Discharge deed registration, extract the latest encumbrance certificate for cross verification, and make sure that bank name is removed from mortgage lien.
