Single electronic database of real estate to be created in Azerbaijan
Azerbaijan, Baku, May 14 / Trend , U.Ismaylova /
A single electronic database of every real estate in Azerbaijan will be created in the administrative building of the State Real Estate Registry Service of Azerbaijan, said the head of the State Service Arif Garashov during an international seminar "Development of national territory infrastructure in Eastern Europe and Central Asia" on May 14.
"Currently, a program of e-government is realized in the country, and the real estate infrastructure of the national territory is one of the important elements," said Garashov.
He said that the introduction of the national real estate infrastructure will ensure transparency in the registration of property, minimize the time for registration, etc.
In 2008 the Ministry of Communications & Information Technologies of Azerbaijan launched a program of e-government at a cost of $30 million.
As noted in the encyclopedic data, e-government is a way of providing information and a set of governmental services to citizens, businesses and other branches of government and public officials, where personal interaction between the state and the applicant was minimized and the possible use of information technologies was maximized.
E-government is not a complement or analogue of traditional government, but merely defines a new way of interaction through the active use of information and communication technologies (ICT) to improve the efficiency of public services.
A single electronic system to be developed in every public office in the country will create conditions for developing a single electronic database for each facility. According to Garashov, this system will also provide more efficient access to information from the public offices and greatly simplify the work of notary offices.
Currently within Real Estate Registration project realized jointly with the World Bank, the State Service has a digital map with the inventory data, covering the entire country. This map is periodically upgraded.
"I think by 2013, we will have more extensive digital, cadastral maps each real estate in Azerbaijan," said Garashov.
In July 2007 the Government of Azerbaijan and the WB signed a credit agreement for the creation of a single cadastre of real estate. The project consists of four components - registration of real estate; management and register of state property; basic cartography and land cadastre; training, policy formulation and project management. The cost of the project is $38.57 million, of where World Bank's loan accounts for $30 million. Credit resources are provided for a period of 20 years with the grace period of five years.Do you have feedback? contact our journalist at: [email protected]
