LAHORE - Chief Minister Punjab Shahbaz Sharif has said that no more delay be made in the Land Record Computerisation Project in the province and asked the departments concerned to utilise all resources for speedy and transparent completion of the project. He was presiding over a high level meeting on Thursday in connection with Land Record Computerisation Project before departing to London, which was attended by the Chief Secretary, Chairman Planning and Development, Secretary Finance and other concerned officers. A number of proposals for implementation on the Project came under discussion in the meeting. The CM while speaking to the meeting said Land Computerisation Project had been long hit by slackness and now it was our responsibility to complete the process speedily so that people may get rid of the obsoletes as well to curtail role of the officers of the Revenue Department. He said computerisation of land record would make access to relevant record easy for the landowners besides bringing an end to the fake and fraudulent registration of the properties. He said four firms were paid lacs of rupees during last government for the preparation of software but these firms did nothing but and the authorities concerned neither sought any explanation nor took any action against them. He said merciless wastage of the national resources was highly regrettable and wastage of the public exchequer would not be allowed. He directed the officers to constitute a special committee headed by the Chief Secretary to negotiate with the company preparing the software with regard to the Land Record Computerisation Project and make a deal keeping in view all aspects of the same. The Chief Minister also directed a comprehensive briefing be arranged for him in near future regarding the time frame and implementation on the Project. Earlier, the Chief Secretary and the Chairman Planning & Development gave a detailed briefing on the project.
