Cabinet approves online land registration, mutation process
The Cabinet today approved a proposal of online land registration and mutation process.
From now on mutation will automatically be completed online within eight days of land registration.
Usually land registration is done by offices of sub-registrar and AC land. In this process, land registration and mutation used to be delayed due to lack of coordination.

"From now on there will be an interoperability software that will bridge the offices," said Cabinet Secretary Khandaker Anwarul Islam at a briefing following today's cabinet meeting.
Due to online service, corrupt practices will be reduced and the process will be hassle-free, he said adding case logging related to land will also decrease by almost 50 percent.
Anwarul said the online system will also reduce haphazard land registration.
He said the online service is already in effect in 17 upazilas of the country including Savar.
