Land plot registration takes 30 minutes
Amount of time needed to communicate with public authorities is one of core business indicators and life conditions in the country, experts note, the Information-Analytical Bulletin of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine informs.
Therefore, any steps of state and local government authorities that help reduce the time for issuing certificates, documents, and submission of tax and other statements, raise approval of business and ordinary citizens.
In this view, experts positively view the activity of State Agency on Land Resources of Ukraine (State Land Agency) and State Registration Service of Ukraine (Ukrainian State Register). In the past two years, these agencies upgraded and automated processes, thereby drastically reduced time for registration of property rights, obtaining of necessary certificates and extracts from registers. This, in turn, ensures rendering of better public services to a significantly larger number of citizens.
As an example, experts provide information of the State Land Agency, according to which, in January 2014 alone, regional offices of land resources registered 57,000 land plots, which is almost double that of January 2013, when National Cadastral System of State Land Agency was commissioned.
Also, since beginning of the year, cadastral registrars have issued over 60,000 extracts from the State Land Cadaster, which is up 5,000 more year-on-year and by 4 times more than in 2012.
The new type of relationship between public and the State Land Agency ensured the drastic reduction of time for registration of land plots, experts note. Due to automation of all processes, at present, registration of one plot takes half an hour. Although 1.5 years ago, registration of land lasted for months or even years, promoting corruption and abuse.
