At the occasion of the workshop that took place in Dar Es Salaam, November 28th, the Minister in charge of land issues, Mr Wiliam Lukuvia, has called upon the ILMIS (Integrated Land Management Information System) project to speed up digitization work that shall allow electronic updating, processing, storage and retrieval of land records and information in Tanzania.
Speaking after touring the ILMIS offices in Dar es Salaam, he said the new process shall automatically stop double allocation of land titles and shall strongly reduce the number of land disputes going to Court.
The land information system to be developed in the perimeter of the IMLIS project is expected to be fully operational by June 2018 in the two districts, Kinondoni and Ubungo, in the region of Dar es Salaam. Funded by the World Bank, the initial phase of the IMLIS project includes the design, de development, customisation build, installation of ILMIS, support efficient administration of cadaster and real property registration at central, zonal and district level, conversion and indexing of data and migration into the ILMIS database.
Under the Integrated Land Management Information System, the number of days taken for a mortage transaction has been reduced from 6 to 4 days while record searching for land ownership has been reduced from seven to four days.
