Karachi: The Sindh government on Saturday announced its decision to launch an online networking system to facilitate coordination between all landholding agencies and departments tasked with the verification of land records in the province, a news source reported.
As per details, Chief Minister (CM) Murad Ali Shah discussed the matter during his recent meeting with a delegation of the World Bank (WB) held at the Chief Minister’s House. According to officials, the purpose of the said system is to create ease of verification for investors.
The WB representatives asked the CM to introduce measures for removing hurdles impeding the issuance of No Objection Certificates (NOCs) to nascent businesses. The investors should not be made to go to various departments to obtain NOC. Instead they should be asked to make a single application to the investment department, which will then be responsible for arranging clearance from all other departments.
The reason for the delay was recognised as being caused by multiple landholding department for which the CM ordered immediate action. He also asked the chief secretary to introduce reforms at sub-registrar level so that registration, transfer and mutation issues of properties could be digitised and resolved within a day.
