Baku, Azerbaijan, Dec. 14
By Nigar Guliyeva – Trend:
The ways to increase efficiency of reforms that are being implemented in the sphere of land resources, geodesy and cadaster in Uzbekistan was mulled at a meeting held under the chairmanship of President Shavkat Mirziyoyev on Dec.13.
At the meeting, administration of the State Committee of the Republic of Uzbekistan on Land Resources, Geodesy, Cartography and State Cadaster were seriously criticized for lack of initiative.
The criticism came in relation to issues of complex ordering of relations in the sphere of land resources, geodesy, cartography and state cadaster, organization of rational and efficient land use, ensuring effective control.
It was noted that the lack of systemic monitoring of implementation of agrotechnical measures and sowing of crops in the amount stipulated in the contracts, 833 farmers have not fulfilled the contractual obligations for sowing of cotton and grain on 13,000 hectares in the current year.
To prevent this, the president tasked to develop and implement appropriate measures on effective land use, ensuring strict compliance by farmers with the terms of the concluded contracts.
There was also noted that the state cadaster service did not fully complete the registration of property without documents, revealed during a full inventory of real estate objects carried out in 2016-2017.
During the inventory it was revealed that documents for 1,1 million residential properties remained unformed for more than 15 years, 145,000 real estate objects were exploited without any documents for less than 15 years, as well as 67,000 objects were built on 8,500 hectares of illegally occupied lands and protected areas.
However, as it was emphasized at the meeting, the cadastral authorities, governors of districts and cities did not complete the work on preparation of cadastral documentation of these facilities, registration of the right to property, demolition or granting of the right to own objects that were built on unauthorized occupied land.
So, the cadastral documents were prepared only on 751,000 of the 1,1 million residential properties that have been in operation for more than 15 years. In general, it was pointed out that work in this direction remains without proper control.
Taking this into account, the president instructed to develop and ensure execution of a resolution, program and schedule on full registration of housing and land without cadastral documents and address the issue of illegally occupied lands and unauthorized buildings.
Also, the State Tax Committee was instructed to work with the State Committee of the Republic of Uzbekistan on Land Resources, Geodesy, Cartography and State Cadaster on registering housing and land identified as the result of inventory in cadastral bodies, that have no documents, ensure the completeness and regular updating of the database on such objects in cadastral and tax authorities.
