High Committee of the National Project of Automation of Agricultural Land Registration Meets to Follow-up on Phase II Inauguration

High committee of the National Project of Automation of Agricultural Land Registration held today its eighth periodical meeting to follow up on the recent developments of the project nationwide.

The meeting was co-chaired by Minister of Communications and Information Technology Dr. Tarek Kamel and that of Water Resources and Irrigation Dr. Mahmoud Abu-Zeid and attended by Assistant to Minister of Justice Counselor Mohamed Hosni, First Deputy to Minister of Communications and IT Dr. Hoda Baraka and Head of Egyptian Survey Authority (ESA) Eng. General Mohamed Abdel-Latif Abdullah. 

The meeting reviewed the challenges facing the practical implementation of the new system to avoid any defects in phase two, which kicked off in July 2007, expected to be finalized in July 2009.

In September 2005, Prime Minister Dr. Ahmed Nazif had assigned Dr. Kamel and Dr. Abu Zaid to carry out the land registration.

In this domain, a three-year trilateral cooperation protocol had been signed among the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology, Ministry of Water Resources and Irrigation (MWRI) and that of Justice in April 2005.

In July 2007, Premier Nazif launched the project's first phase, inaugurating a series of centers linked to phase I and the land registration offices in Giza and the newly developed land registration
office in Kafr El-Sheikh province.   

The project’s first phase comprised maps digitalization and the creation of databases for maps and real estate documents; then integrating both into a database for geographical information.

The project has already finalized enlisting five million real estate documents in the database that included the 19 governorates of Qalyoubia, Assiut, Sohag, Damietta, Kaft El-Sheikh, Menia, Beni Sueif, Ismalia, Gharbia, Giza, Fayoum, Kena, Aswan, Dakahlia, Menoufia, Sharkia, Suez, Port Said and Beheira where the system has been applied.

The project has also digitized a total of 128,214 maps in the ten governorates of Ismalia, Port Said, Suez, Kaft El-Sheikh, Beni Sueif, Damietta, Sohag, Assiut, Qena and Aswan which represent 93% of a total of 138,000 maps. More than 2761 certificates have been released so far via an automated system in the upgraded corporeal registry center.

A series of real estate offices and administrations in Kafr El-Sheikh, Kafr Saad and Damietta have been upgraded. The automation process is underway in Sharkia, Dakahlia, Menia, Giza, Assiut and Beheira to be finalized in December 2008. The whole project is expected to be inaugurated during the second half of 2009.
