Karachi: Mayor Wasim Akhtar stated that the city’s land record computerisation was underway at the Land Department. He added that the purpose of this measure was to prevent alteration of land and property documents.
The mayor revealed that the Financial Management Software was under development for the land record computerisation – for which the Karachi Metropolitan Corporation was bearing all expenses. He added that all land records would undergo computerisation following the development of the software, which would make it impossible to alter bills of pension, salary, and gratuity.
Akhtar said that the software would also allow its users to view details of any property with only a click. He added that this development would end alteration to documents of markets and tenants’ names. He highlighted that if anyone were found altering such documents, they would have to face legal action.
The mayor also stated that the work on Land Achieving had started last year and would continue this year. The authorities concerned aimed to complete this work at the earliest possible time, he added.
