Land registration to be digitized

Finance Minister AHM Mustafa Kamal has said an e-judiciary project has been taken to bring the subordinate courts in Bangladesh under the ICT (information and communication technology) network. 

"Under the project, each court will be transformed into an e-court room," he said while announcing the national budget for 2020-21 fiscal year in the parliament on Thursday.

As a result, the minister said, case management will become more efficient, since each court, different offices attached to judicial proceedings such as police stations, hospitals and jails, and concerned people, such as investigators, witnesses, lawyers and accused persons, will be connected under the central network. 

This will reduce time and costs for the litigants, who will soon be benefitted if the project is implemented, he said.

The new proposed budget has allocated Tk1,739 crore for Law and Justice Division and for the Supreme Court the amount is Tk222 crore.

In the last fiscal year, Tk1,650 crore was allocated for the division and for the apex court the amount was Tk195 crore.

The minister also said the land registration process will be digitized to make it easy and more transparent. 

He said once the inter-operability (E-Service Bus) or linkage is established among different government agencies, it will help ensure secure inter-connectivity and exchange of information at the field level among the land offices, settlement offices, sub-registry and district registry offices, Directorate of Registration, other offices related to land, Election Commission, Department of Immigration and Passport, and Birth and Death Registration Office. 

This will enable citizens to avail electronic land registration services, the minister added.
