YEREVAN, January 11. /ARKA/. The complex reforms in the structure of Armenia’s State Committee of the Real Estate Cadastre, which were targeted at maximal abolishment of direct contact with citizens and work optimization, highly reduced corruption risks, the chairman Yervand Zaqaryan said.
“Armenia’s President ordered the Committee to ensure transparency which would please our citizens. I am glad to state that the orders of the President are fulfilled, and the corruption risks are reduced to minimum benchmarks,” he told reporters on Friday.
The Committee received less complaints from the citizens which resulted in less lawsuits, and this fact proves the efficiency of the reforms, according to him.
“In 2008, 35-40% of the complaints were rejected, in 2012 the percent accounted to 5.5. In turn, it resulted in less lawsuits. In 2008, 122 court decisions were made on the basis of the complaints, and in 2012 the number slashed 5 times to 24 lawsuits,” he noted.
The citizens can now enjoy more convenient procedures when applying to the Committee, he added.
An electronic registration of real property is also available.
Zaqaryan highlighted launch of electronic database containing 34 million documents, measures related to introduction of cartography automated system among the main achievements of 2012. -0-
