As per recently published World Bank report only 30% of World’s Population have registered title of property whereas rest of 70% population is deprived of this basic right. Inappropriate Land Administration procreates social injustice which is a great hindrance in social and economic development.
In contrast; the Punjab Government has digitizedcentury’s old land records through and consequently the right of 55 Million land owner has been secured. Which is a tremendous achievement of Punjab Government and it’s even globally acknowledged.
Owing to digitize land record a considerable decrease has been observed in the family disputes related to land record over the past few years and this is a step forward towards social and economic stability.

In a result of an agreement between Punjab Land Record Authority, NADRA and Bank of Punjab 3700 E-Kiosk centers and 400 Bank of Punjab Branches will be providing the Fard issuing facility for general public in couple of months which will ensure easy access of public to Land records.
Moreover 34 districts out of 36 districts has been linked with central software’s and remaining 2 likely to be linked by the end of this month after which the Fard for record of ownership could be obtained from any of the ARC across Punjab.For further facilitation the Punjab Land Record Authority is going to launch mobile service.
After the inception of mobile service general public will be able to get the land related services on their door steps.
TheWorld Bank during a conference held at Washington in April 2017 awarded the LRMIS with best project award out of 136 Countries and also declared the LRMIS as role model for rest of the countries. Recently the delegation of Sindh Board of revenue and AJK has also visited PLRA for the training purposes and appreciated the new system.
