    Automation of Agricultural Land Registration

    Last Updated: 02 Jul 2019
    The Automation of Corporeal Agricultural Land Registry project comes in the framework of a cooperation protocol between ministries of Justice, Water Resources and Irrigation and Communications and Information Technology to automate the process of corporeal agricultural land registration.

    The project works on improving services provided to citizens to facilitate procedures of corporeal registration at the level of notary offices, offices and directorates of the surveying authority deployed in 19 provinces through 94 locations.

    The project provides more efficient means to settle feuds of agriculture land ownership, as well as protecting the rights of citizens and the state. 

    Project progress also includes restructuring procedures for services provided at every corporeal registry office, design office and surveying authority directorates.

    In 2005, the project started by the digital shift towards cadastral maps and real state documents to create a geographic database for the agricultural cadaster.

    Other aspects of the project include the adoption of the principle of dealing with one party in the transactions of land and the creation of an online portal to provide e-services to the public.
    This is in addition to the development of corporeal registry offices and the implementation of an information network linking these offices, in collaboration with the Information Center for cadastral maps at the Egyptian Survey Authority.
