Georgian authorities to simplify procedures for land registration
Simplified procedures for land registration, planned to remain in force until January 1, 2020, will become the general rule of land registration, Georgia's Justice Minister Thea Tsulukiani said.
"This initiative is important for every citizen, especially for citizens which live in villages or own lands in the countryside. On the other hand, it is critically important to our economy, because land is one of the most important resources of our economy," Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia said.
Up until January 1, 2021, registering the land will not affect the rating scores of families receiving social assistance and benefits. Consequently, these families will receive social assistance and all the benefits they enjoyed before land registration, Agenda.ge reported.
738,483 applicants have successfully registered land since 2016 which means that the area registered since 2016 is more than three times more than the total registered area since Georgian independence up until 2016.
