Project Details

The Project envisions establishment of a system of accurate, transparent and secure land records linked to geospatial information system for the Merged Areas (MAs) of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Exploring land records management requires understanding the concept of land and significance of records management in the development process of urban/rural areas. The development in these areas requires a coordinated work between committed governments at all levels, honest government officials, open legislative and transparent regulatory system. Unlike rest of the province, the MAs do not have an official system of land and property rights with the exception of only a few pockets of land in Kurram and North Waziristan that have land records prepared and maintained. The current state of property rights is characterized by two main features: (a) the ownership of land is undocumented; and (ii) most of the rights of usufruct are communal in nature. The latter means that the ownership of most of the land rests with the tribe. In the absence of formal records and any institutional mechanisms for record keeping, disputes regarding land are resolved through the Jirga, community bodies, whilst the sale and purchase of land also remains cumbersome. Land is not taxed and the government has therefore no database of land titles, occupancy and rights of passage and use. Unlike other areas of Pakistan, the usufruct of the land in MAs remains undocumented. Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has recently approved a Tribal Decade Strategy (TDS) to address developmental lags of Merged Areas (MAs). It accords high priority to economic development of this region. An important endeavor in this regard is creation of accurate, transparent and secure system of land records providing ease of access of land information to its owners. In addition to this, a system of legal institutions will be required for efficient and affordable dispute resolution. This effort will draw upon the systems, skill sets and manual procedures currently in practice in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and the rest of Pakistan while also reaching out to benefit from IT based information and innovations in system designs to provide higher level of service delivery to residents and businesses in MAs.
