Parliamentary Secretary for Interior Shaukat Ali on Monday informed the National Assembly that work was being carried out swiftly to computerise all land records in the Islamabad Capital Territory and federal areas.
Responding to a calling attention notice moved by Sajida Begum and others regarding the non-availability of an open, fair and transparent system of mutation (land/property) in ICT and federal areas, he stated that utmost care and a proper procedure has to be adopted for transferring the land from one person to another.
Ali said land was being transferred under Revenue Act, 1967 after thorough scrutiny.
Both the buyer and the seller as well as officials of the revenue department need to be present during the transfer of land, he added.
