Govt Defines First Ever Five-Year Land Rights Policy

Afghanistan Land Authority - Arazi - has outlined a five-year land management program which is aimed at developing a land ownership management system and land ownership rights system to protect customary ownership in Afghanistan. 
 
President Ashraf Ghani said that previous governments in Afghanistan failed to introduce a safe ownership system in the country. He said that the incumbent government is trying to ensure that every citizen in the country has the right to secure land ownership. 
 
“Our objective is to bring reforms, and this will not change. We want to lay down the foundation of a system which can go ahead for centuries, but the core point for this, is that all of us reach a specific formula,” said Ghani. 
 
He said that government is also trying to allot land for refugees who are returning to the country. 
 
“Our intention is to define a comprehensive legal foundation for land ownership in Afghanistan and also we want to determine the territory of Afghanistan on the basis of a single quote,” added Ghani. 
 
Meanwhile, officials from Afghanistan Land Authority – Arazi - said that with the implementation of the five-year program, the institution will be able to introduce systematic reforms in the management of the land ownership process in Afghanistan. 
 
According to Arazi officials, the program will also help the implementation of development projects in the country. 
 
“Over the past three and a half years, over 400,000 acres of land has been taken back from land grabbers,” said Jawad Paikar, chairman of Arazi. 
 
“Bringing change to the lives of people is the key to success. Ownership and patriotism has a direct link to each other. Our people never bothered to render sacrifices for their country. But, the governments have failed to ensure safe ownership for them,” Ghani stated.
