Work On Digitization Of Land Records Under Way
Islamabad: The government has started work on the digitalization of land records by launching the ‘Cadastral Mapping Project’
The government has started work on the digitalization of land records by launching the ‘Cadastral Mapping Project’ for transforming the old patwari system into a modern computerized online system. This project would prove instrumental for Inland revenue generation, easy accessibility of property rights, tenure information, lesser land litigation cases, improved taxation and collection mechanism, land conflict resolution and reduction of corrupt practices.
It is also helpful in verification, construction, transfer of properties, field surveys for delimitation, geo-tagging, and digitization of the properties. Moreover, this project will enable the government of Pakistan to retrieve encroached land. Under the new project, the Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB) property will be computerized.
