Q1. Can Online Registered Rent Agreement or Online Leave and License Agreement in Pune, Mumbai and rest of Maharashtra be customised?
Ans: The only customisation area in an Online Registered Rent Agreement or Online Leave and License Agreement in Pune, Mumbai and rest of Maharashtra is the Miscellaneous Section at the bottom of the draft (either falls in sec 12, 13, or 14 depending upon the inclusion or removal of few permissible clauses in the draft). This section is totally blank and any wordings or sentences could be inserted or it can be completely skipped.
There was a time till end of 2018, when the Miscellaneous section (either sec 12 or 13) of the Online Registered Rent Agreement had infinite capacity to insert as many wordings as possible with no limit size whatsoever. But now, such capacity has been curtailed by the department and now this Miscellaneous section of the Online Leave and License Agreement can accommodate 1000 characters only with no special characters (like :, ?, “, _, /, etc)

Q2. Why is the limit inserted for the number of characters to be inserted in an online registered rent agreement?
Ans: There are various reasons for the above question. It is assumed that the department has the below reasons for reducing the allowable limit of characters in Miscellaneous section of the Online rent agreement registration in Pune and Mumbai from unlimited to 1000.
- Quick Solution: The sole intention of making this Online Registered Rent Agreement or Online Leave and License Agreement is for quick solution to fulfil the needs of Leave and License Agreement and in no way a method of comprehensive representation of customising and enlarging the agreement to lengthy pages of 15-20 pages or more. This intention is nullified when the allowable limit exceeds to unlimited pages. Customisation and comprehensiveness with eye to details can always be done in an Offline Registered Rent Agreement by visiting the Subregistrar Office.
- Authenticity of sub-section: When a lot of paragraphs are inserted inside the Miscellaneous section, each of the terms and condition has to be checked and scrutinised personally by the sub-registration officer, whether they are conforming to Maharashtra Rent Control Act along with other required acts. Verifying all such sub-sections inside Miscellaneous section requires time, effort and reduces the fast solution of getting the Leave and License Agreement ready as in many cases, the queries can be raised by the sub-registrar and thereby delay the process of approval.
- Cloud Storage optimisation: More characters require more space in the cloud to store and retain such data, which in long run is not cost – effective for the department.
Hence, by curtailing or restraining the character space of the Miscellaneous section of this Online Rent Agreement Registration, all the above solutions can be attained.
Q3. What subsections/content is mostly inserted in the Miscellaneous Section of the Online Registered Rent Agreement?
Ans: Schedule II of the Online Registration of Rent Agreement in Pune, Mumbai and rest of Maharashtra, is the space allocated for Fixtures and Furnitures in the house. But here again the items are fixed (15 fixed items) and only the numbers of such items can be altered. Also the additional space to insert additional items (not available on the list) is only limited to 10 characters only, Hence, these additional items find their space in the Miscellaneous section.
Additional fittings & fixtures which donot fit in predefined Schedule II can be inserted in the Miscellaneous section
The Miscellaneous section can also include a few small condtions here and there, which doesnot exist in the predefined draft. For E.g Society Maintenance Fee if Rs X to be paid separately to the society chairman, a particular room, if any to be kept locked all the time and can be used by the Licensor only, etc. The aforementioned examples are incomprehensive, although the standard template of Online Leave and License Agreement of Pune, Mumbai and Rest of Maharashtra covers all the basic areas of Licensing/Tenancy.
Concl: Hence the sole intention of curbing out lengthy additional subsections inside Miscellaneous section is to keep the Online Registration of Rent Agreement compact, neat and clean. And to retain the identity of Offline Registered Rent Agreement to be comprehensive, detail and long.
