KUCHING, July 24: Dealing with the Land and Survey Department is now literally finger tips away. This follows the launch of the department’s LASIS mobile application today.
Developed with the help of Sarawak Information System Sdn Bhd (SAINS), the app enables the user to carry out land search using the Unique Parcel Identifier (UPI) landmark or lot number as stated in land titles.
Users can even purchase cadastral maps or print out land titles at their convenience. Other services provided by the app include renewal of land lease as well as checking on land rent and premium.
The application also comes with an Application for Variation of Title Condition (AVTC) calculator to determine premium rates with regards to AVTC cases.
“LASIS is a comprehensive and integrated land information system that combines the department’s four core services: cadastral surveying, urban and regional planning, land evaluation, and administration.
“This system has shifted the department’s manual work approach to go fully digital. The system will strengthen the department’s efficiency in land administration as well as improving the quality service delivery,” said state Land and Survey Department director Zaidi Mahdi at the department’s Innovation and Integrity Day celebration here.
Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg, who officiated at the function, congratulated the department for creating the app.
“We need to accelerate the process of disseminating information as we improve the delivery system of government agencies and departments. We must continuously uphold the innovation and integrity culture to produce quality services,” he said.
Abang Johari advised the department’s personnel to always carry out their duties with utmost professionalism and integrity because land matters were sensitive issues.
The app can be downloaded for free from the Apple Store or Google Play Store. Most of the services in this system, such as land search and checking on land rent and premium, are free of charge.
A one-time registration is required for new users to access the application. Those who already have an e-LASIS account only need to key-in their username and password to access the app. — DayakDaily
