Purpose of the Property Verification Center
As the name suggests, the center will act as a shared database and search engine to ascertain the legality of land records. Anyone looking to purchase land or property in the federal capital can verify the property using this platform.
As per the regulations, the process may require a deed provided by the Capital Development Authority (CDA) and the completion of the registry entrusted under concerned divisions.
According to experts, the Federal Government aims to simplify property ownership for overseas Pakistanis and the residents of Islamabad. The soon-to-be-launched Property Verification Center is the first step towards accomplishing this objective.
