HÀ NỘI – Forty seven provinces and cities in the country now have hotlines on violations related to land-use right and management, the Ministry for Natural Resources and Environment reported.
Thanks to the hotlines, the ministry has received 1,304 reports from April 22 to June 30, of which 402 reflected land-use and management violations and having clear addresses. For these reports, the ministry has requested authorities of localities to inspect and handle the cases.
851 reports did not involve land violations and 49 reflected issues irrelevant to land-use and management.
Additionally, working-teams responsible for solving difficulties and problems in granting certificates related to land-use rights and assets-on-land ownership were set up following a Decision dated 6 May, 2016 signed by the Minister of Environment and Natural Resources.
These teams’ officials have discovered 51 violations at eight cities and provinces of Hà Nội, Hải Phòng, Thanh Hóa, Nghệ An, Nam Định, Thái Bình, Bà Rịa-Vũng Tàu and HCM City.
Lê Văn Lịch, deputy general director of the General Department of Land Administration said through inspections, the rate of land-use rights certificate granting at all eight localities was high. Up to May 15, 2016 the rate was 96.97 per cent in Bà Rịa-Vũng Tàu, 92.5 per cent in Thanh Hóa, 90.4 per cent in Nghệ Anh, 97.8 per cent in Nam Định, 91.3 per cent in Thái Bính, 88 per cent in HCM City, 85.5 per cent in Hà Nội and 85.3 per cent in Hải Phòng.
However, working-teams found a number of existing restrictions on the first registration and granting certificate to households.
There were a large number of cases that were granted certificates for agricultural land but were no longer valid, and haven’t yet re-granted a new certificate.
For example, Nam Định Province has 436,000 cases that weren’t re-granted land-use rights certificate and 204,000 other cases that weren’t registered for the first granting certificates.
Besides, there were a number of remaining applications for land-use rights certificates in Hà Nội, Nghệ An, Hải Phòng.
Authorities of some localities didn’t implement new regulations on land registration and certificate granting, such as electronic cadastral books and certificates of land acquisition, according to the teams’ officials.
On the basis of summarising the inadequacies and shortcomings related to the certificate granting in these localities, working-teams have proposed amendments and supplements to the relevant offices, aiming at solving the problems and speeding up the implementation of land registration and certificate granting. — VNS
