It should be noted that according to the resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of August 3, 2016, a complete inventory of real estate objects of individuals and legal entities was carried out in 2016-2017.
Inventory activities have been completed in all 8 901 makhallas of the country. Such activities were held in over 6 million 190 thousand real estate objects, including 5,8 million residential properties, 267 963 non-residential facilities, 38 373 suburban areas.
To date, the State Tax Committee has been provided cadastral information on more than 6 million 30 thousand (97 percent) properties in real time.
In order to improve the quality of the state cadaster services rendered by the subdivisions of the Committee to citizens and business entities through a wide introduction of modern information and communication technologies, 7 public services have been transferred into an interactive format.
For the purposes of land surveillance, planting of agricultural crops and implementation of agrotechnical measures through the effective introduction of unmanned aerial vehicles, quadrocopters were imported in the real sector of the economy.
At the meeting, the lack of initiative of administration of the State Committee of the Republic of Uzbekistan on Land Resources, Geodesy, Cartography and State Cadaster in issues of complex ordering of relations in the sphere of land resources, geodesy, cartography and state cadaster, organization of rational and efficient land use, ensuring effective control was seriously criticized. It was also noted that there are many problems awaiting their solution in the sphere.
So, due to the lack of systemic monitoring of implementation of agrotechnical measures and sowing of crops in the amount stipulated in the contracts, 833 farmers have not fulfilled the contractual obligations for sowing of cotton and grain on 13 thousand hectares in the current year.
For preventing such cases, Deputy Prime Minister Z.Mirzayev was instructed to develop and implement appropriate measures on effective land use, ensuring strict compliance by farmers with the terms of the concluded contracts.
At the meeting, it was seriously pointed out that the state cadaster service did not fully complete the registration of property without documents, revealed on the basis of a full inventory of real estate objects carried out in 2016-2017.
In particular, during the inventory it was revealed that documents for 1 million 100 thousand residential properties remained unformed for more than 15 years, 145 thousand real estate objects were exploited without any documents for less than 15 years, as well as 67 thousand objects were built on 8,5 thousand hectares of illegally occupied lands and protected areas.
However, as it was emphasized at the meeting, the cadastral authorities, khokims of districts and cities did not complete the work on preparation of cadastral documentation of these facilities, registration of the right to property, demolition or granting of the right to own objects that were built on unauthorized occupied land. So, the cadastral documents were prepared only on 751 thousand of the 1,1 million residential properties that have been in operation for more than 15 years. In general, it was pointed out that work in this direction remains without proper control.
Taking this into account, Deputy Prime Minister Z.Mirzayev, Chairman of the State Committee of the Republic of Uzbekistan on Land Resources, Geodesy, Cartography and State Cadaster A.Abdullayev was instructed, together with local khokimiyats, to develop and ensure execution of a resolution, program and schedule on full registration of housing and land without cadastral documents and address the issue of illegally occupied lands and unauthorized buildings.
The passivity of introduction into the sphere of information and communication technologies, including a unified information system of real estate accounting, establishment of constant information exchange with tax authorities was noted.
The Chairman of the State Tax Committee B.Parpiyev was instructed to work with the State Committee of the Republic of Uzbekistan on Land Resources, Geodesy, Cartography and State Cadaster on registering housing and land identified as the result of inventory in cadastral bodies, that have no documents, ensure the completeness and regular updating of the database on such objects in cadastral and tax authorities.
Attention was also paid to the need of improving the registration of land and property. In particular, it was pointed out that Uzbekistan takes the 73rd place in the rating of the World Bank in terms of the “Registration of property” index.
Taking this into account, the Chairman of the State Committee of the Republic of Uzbekistan on Land Resources, Geodesy, Cartography and State Cadaster A.Abdullayev was instructed to submit to the Cabinet of Ministers a draft government resolution on establishment of automated preparation and registration of cadastral documentation using the “Single window” method, as well as the exchange of relevant data with tax and notary departments, within a month.
Also, in order to strengthen control over agricultural lands and sowing works, instructions were given on completing the purchase of modern unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) and submitting to the Cabinet of Ministers of a draft resolution providing for the establishment of an innovation center for setting up the production of similar devices in our country.
