Registration Department

The history of registration in Bihar dates back to later part of the 18th century after the Regulation XXXVI of 1793 came into force by which an office for the registration of deeds at the sadar station of each zila and in the city of Patna was established. By regulation XXXIX of 1793, a Kazi-ul-Kazat was appointed for the whole of Bengal, Bihar and Orissa and Kazis for several districts and their duties were prescribed.

Several improvements in the system were made by different regulations during Company Period. The system of compulsory registration was introduced for the first time by Act XVI of 1864 which repealed all previous enactments.
