    What is the meaning of the registration of an apartment? In the US for example as far as I know you would just rent the apartment and the government would not be involved.

    I believe there are 2 things involved: First I think for all Indians a registration is needed. The govt here regulates prices and other things, see here: Second, being a foreigner adds complexity. You are right that in the US things are much simpler. Renting is usually just an agreement between you and the landlord, govt usually not involved. The US has things like rent control, but it is usually up to the tenant to find out about that and make sure the landlord complies. Basically in the US if you can pay the rent, you can get an apartment.
