Govt tries to bring land services to people’s hand: PM



Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday said her government has tried to bring land related services to the hands of people to reduce their sufferings and harassments through digitization of the land management system.
“. . . People shouldn’t be harassed; people shouldn’t be subjected to suffering rather we wanted to make arrangements of bringing land services at their hands, keeping in mind that they (people) are not needed to go door-to-door for it,” she said, reports BSS.

She said this while inaugurating Bhumi Bhaban (Land Building) and other development activities as the chief guest.

Joining virtually from her official residence Ganabhaban, the Premier said more digital technology is being used in all areas of land service, including online khatian collection, inheritance calculators and online databases, to ensure “land service at hand”.

“Our goal is to conduct a cent percent e-mutation process and make the land management system of Bangladesh fully digitized,” she said.

With Land Minister Saifuzzaman Chowdhury in the chair, Land Secretary Md Mustafizur Rahman delivered welcome address.

The Ministry of Land organized the opening ceremony of Bhumi Bhaban, Upazila and Union land office buildings, online payment system of land development tax and land data bank in the capital’s Osmani Memorial Auditorium.

At the outset of the ceremony, two video documentaries – – one related to land management and reform taken by Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman as well as digitization of land documents by the present government and another on the newly constructed buildings and development activities — were screened at the function.

The newly built Bhumi Bhaban in the capital’s Tejgaon area is expected to be a “one-stop-service” hub for land related services.
