The government has introduced the National Land Information Management System (NLIMS) referred to as Ardhisasa.
The new system, according to the ministry of lands, is designed to enhance the security of land records, speed up land transactions and curb fraud.
At the click of a button, users will now be able to search and carry out various land transactions, drastically reducing human interactions, delays and other inconveniences previously experienced at manual land registries.
Ardhisasa platform is a Kenyan innovation built after three years of painstaking work by a multiagency team of young Kenyans. Citizens and investors will now be able to access Government services and information on land from the comfort of homes or offices, using mobile phones or computers.
The entire process is free.
