Karachi: Land worth over Rs8bn retrieved, PA told
Karachi: The Sindh Assembly was informed on Wednesday that around 1,854 acres have been retrieved from land grabbers and encroachers in Gadap, Bin Qasim and Baldia that worth Rs 8.37 billion.
Minister for Revenue Jam Mehtab Hussain Khan Dahar, responding to a question by Nusrat Abbasi, said this was made possible after the promulgation of the Sindh Public Property (Removal of Encroachment) Ordinance-2010 and establishment of Anti-Encroachment Cell.
In response to a question by Arif Mustafa Jatoi, the revenue minister said that the Land Administration and Revenue Management Information System (LARMIS) project has been launched to develop an exhaustive database of the whole revenue and land record. He said this has become necessary as complex manual record keeping system has developed inaccuracies over the time resulting in difficulties in obtaining land title.
