KARACHI: Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah presiding over Ease of Doing Business Reforms Council has directed Sindh Board of Revenue (BoR) to reduce registration and transfer of property period from 149 days to six days by empowering investors/people to apply online.
The CM Sindh said, “I am fed up with sub-registrar offices so either correct them or pack them up. I will hand over the registration work to private sector”, said a statement.
The meeting was attended by leading businessperson, including World Bank representative Amjad Bashir, CEO Hubco Khalid Mansoor, President FPCCI Mian Amjad Nisar, President KCCI Agha Shahab Ahmed, President OICCI Shahzad Dada, President ABAD, CEO Sindh Health Care Dr Minhaj Kidwai, Chairman Amreli Steel, Chairman Gul Ahmed Mohammad Bashir, President Pasha Ms Jehan Ara.
The CM was assisted by Chief Secretary Mumtaz Shah, Chairman P&D M. Waseem, PSCM Sajid Jamal Abro.
The chief minister specially called the heads of 10 different government agencies such as CEO KE Syed Monis Abdullah, MD KWSB Asadullah Khan, DG EPA, DG Food authority, representative of SBCA, Commissioner SESSI, Commissioner Karachi and other concerned.
He said the purpose of inviting all leading businessmen and heads of their organisations was to take inputs from them so that business environment could be improved and made up to the mark.
“I have to bring a lot of investment in Karachi, Hyderabad, Sukkur, Larkana, Mirpurkhas and Thatta regions,” he said and added therefore, he would take drastic measures to facilitate investors, he said.
The Senior Member Board of Revenue admitted that registration of property and its transfer take 149 days to six months, therefore he would launch an online application where people would be able to apply for registration and the system would automatically generate transfer or registration.
The CM directed the SMBR to make it from six months to six days and said he was going to launch the online application by the end of this February.
Syed Murad Ali Shah directed the SMBR to outsource Board of Revenue’s call center which has failed to redress public complaints.
We need efficient system and manpower, otherwise ask them to pack up, he directed SMBR. – APP
