    The Ministry of Land has taken an initiative to make the service process easier to provide more efficient and transparent land services. This initiative will further increase the accountability of the land office in providing people-friendly land services.

    A workshop titled ‘Identification of Land Services through Land Management Automation Project’ was held for this purpose on Saturday, today. 70 officials, divided into 10 teams, virtually participated in the workshop from the Land Ministry conference hall, offices of departments/agencies under the Ministry of Land and Habiganj, Sherpur, Noakhali collectorates (DC Office).

    Land Management Domain Specialist of Land Management Automation Project and former Chief Secretary Md. Abul Kalam Azad moderated the event which was presided over by Land Secretary Md. Mustafizur Rahman PAA. Former Secretary Md. Faruk Hossain and Project Director of Land Management Automation Project Muzaffar Ahmed were present at the event.

    To ease the process of land service, an effective information system will be developed for the land service automation system. A functional and complete land service list based on clusters and groups is being prepared by canceling duplicate and unnecessarily separate listed services and including necessary new services, reviewing more than 200 different types of land services.

    The workshop started with an open discussion and Q&A session with the officials of the 10 participating teams. The land secretary, land management (domain) expert, and procurement specialist expressed their views thereafter. Officers participating in the workshop then begin team-based activities and present their works. The recommendations of the participating teams were then discussed. Based on these recommendations, a cluster and class-based land service list will be prepared later.
