HÀ NỘI — Hà Nội People’s Committee has asked relevant agencies to take measures to speed up the issuance of land use right certificates to individuals and organisations in the city.
The committee wants the work finished by the end of June this year.
According to the city’s Natural Resources and Environment Department, land-use right certificates have not been granted to more than 131,000 land plots, some 9.65 per cent of total land plots used by individuals or families in the city.
About 27,000 house buyers or 18.37 per cent of those who buy houses/apartments in housing projects have not got the certificates.
About 5,600 plots, accounting for 29.2 per cent of total land plots used by organisations and offices are not certified.
Officials from districts like Sóc Sơn, Chương Mỹ, Bắc Từ Liêm, Hà Đông and Ba Đình complained that meeting the deadline would be hard.
Vice chairman of Sóc Sơn District People’s Committee Đỗ Minh Tuấn said that the district granted land use right certificates to nearly 74 per cent of individuals and families. There remain more than 19,700 cases to deal with. In some of its communes including Tân Minh and Bắc Sơn, just 40 per cent of certificates have been issued.
Tuấn blamed the slow progress on land users who delay applying for the certificates.
The uncertified land plots were usually those that were allocated or used unlawfully. Other plots were in areas planned for forest land, so they are ineligible for certification, Tuấn said.
“It’s impossible for Sóc Sơn District to complete the issuance of land use right certificates by June 30,” Tuấn said, adding that they wanted the deadline extended to December 31, 2017.
Vice chairman of Bắc Từ Liêm District People’s Committee Nguyễn Kim Vinh said that the district had more than 12,000 plots not certified.
In Ba Đình District, about 2,000 families could not receive land use right certificates because they are using land included in ongoing projects or planned to be used for other purposes.
Vice chairman of Hà Nộị municipal People’s Committee Nguyễn Quốc Hùng said that the Natural Resources and Environment Department would establish two inspection groups - besides the four existing ones – to visit localities and directly solve problems relating to the certificate issuance. — VNS
