Pakistani PM Imran unveils cadastral map of Islamabad to fight qabza gangs. Imran Khan, the prime minister of Pakistan, launched the cadastral map of Islamabad on Wednesday. The map will help prevent land record tampering, ensure construction monitoring through imaging, and offer land ownership information.
The cadastral mapping project was designed under the prime minister’s objective to replace the old system with a modernised digital online one using information technology.
They allocated the work of cadastral mapping to the Pakistan Survey of Pakistan. The entire country’s digitisation of income records for three major cities — Karachi, Lahore, and Islamabad — and state land data would be completed in the first phase.
In his remarks at the inauguration, the prime minister stated that the project would assist people in determining ownership of plots. Thus, it was nothing short of a “transformational endeavour.”
He stated that the cadastral mapping of three cities would be completed by November of this year, and that would complete the remainder of the country six months later.
As the premier pointed out, large land-grabbing organisations operating in the country were making a lot of money from the illegal practice.
