Land revenue offices go online
KATHMANDU: Ministry of Land Management, Cooperatives and Poverty Alleviation has expanded its online services in a total of 47 land revenue offices across the country including those inside Kathmandu valley.
In its bid to systematise the process of land transaction, the Ministry has expanded its online service to 10 more land revenue offices. The Ministry had started online services at 37 land revenue offices some four months ago.
Minister for Land Management, Cooperatives and Poverty Alleviation Padma Aryal said that the online system would incorporate around 75 percent of land transactions across the country, adding that it would ensure prompt, fast and quality service in the field of land administration.
With the beginning of online service, details of the landowners will be registered into the system. Likewise, finger prints of both buyers and sellers, and their photos will be updated in the computer system.
Such intervention is expected to reduce the physical presence of service seekers and service providers, and the landowners would be secured from the possible threats of fraud.
According to the Ministry’s secretary, Gopinath Mainali, the system would be expanded in all 131 land revenue offices across the country to end the ill-practices reported in the land administration.
