The government has launched 'Mero Kitta' and Nepal Land Information System (NELIS) in a bid to facilitate realty sector in the country.

The land details from across the country will now be stored in the central server, NELIS.

This will make it easier to access the service provided by the survey offices and get the details of revenue collection, the Department of Survey has stated.

Similarly, with the Mero Kitta (my land), which is an online platform, one can submit land revenue details and print the sketch of his/her plot of land.

Service-seeker can access the platform by logging on to www. merokitta.dos.gov.np.

After receiving the online approval, the user can enter the required details of the land and scan the land owner certificate and citizenship certificate.

The relevant document link will be available on the page where one can download the document for one week. If the user does not download and use the given link within a week, he or she will have to re-do the entire process to access the service again.

The department has stated it hopes the introduction of this system will reduce the risk of coronavirus infection from spreading as the number of service-seekers visiting the survey offices will be less. In addition, the department believes the use of technology will contribute to fast, efficient and economical services as well as transparency and good governance in land administration services.
