The data of state lands in all the districts of the province had been provided to the Survey General of Pakistan said Chief Secretary of KP

Chief Secretary Khyber Pakhtunkhwa told the meeting that the data of state lands in all the districts of the province had been provided to the Survey General of Pakistan.

The prime minister was told by the Survey General of Pakistan that Sindh government was yet to provide the data.

On the query of the prime minister, chief secretary Sindh said that the matter had been placed before the provincial cabinet and data would be provided after approval from Sindh cabinet.

The prime minister said that digitization of land records including the state land was the need of hour.

He further said as the non-provision of data will strengthen the impression in masses that illegal occupation of state lands and Qabza Mafia (land grabbers) had the backing of influential personalities, therefore it was very important to dispel such impression.

The prime minister directed to provide all the data of state lands to the Survey General of Pakistan so as to digitize the land record.

He further said that placement of all the data of approved and unapproved housing societies at the websites of development authorities concerned should be ensured.

The prime minister directed that besides the availability of data at the websites of development authorities, central data bank should also be established at provincial levels so that all the details of such projects were made available to Pakistanis specially the Overseas Pakistanis.
