The government hopes to make it easier for the Income Department and farmers to combat corruption and increase revenue collection by implementing an automated system. Mr. Khan claimed that 20 mobile centers and 115 computerized land record centers had been constructed in the last two years.
In addition, up to 23 commercial banks have access to digitized land data to assist farmers.
A data-sharing agreement has been inked by the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) and the Punjab Revenue Department. Following the installation of E-stamping, revenue from the Revenue Department increased by 80%. Land-related concerns will be settled, according to the provincial minister, once a land record center is established. He further stated that the open courts are held every month to resolve land-related issues.
