THE COMPUTERISED LAND REGISTRATION SYSTEM
The Cabinet has agreed on the plan of establishing Implementation of Land Information System Committee in 1980 . The Ministry of Land and Regional Development was appointed as the coordinator for the implementation of the system, and a specialist consultant from The Central Board For Real Estate Data (CFD) of Sweden was appointed to assist the ministry. The Department of Director General of Lands and Mines has been given the responsibility in developing the ICT project which involved land administration at the State level.
The Computerized Land Registration System (CLRS) is a system developed in 1990 by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (NRE) which was formerly known as the the Ministry of Land and Cooperation Development with the co-operation of the Swedish Government. The CLRS project was started in 1989 and as the initial step, a pilot project was attempted. The taskforce of CLRS came out with actions that have to be done before the implementation of the pilot project. The actions were an amendment of the National Land Code whereby the Fourteenth Schedule was added, the procurements of the hardware and related equipments and the site preparation. The pilot project was then first implemented in the Land and Mines Office of Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur.
The implementation of CLRS was divided into two phases, Phase 1 and Phase 2. Phase 1 began in 1996 to 1998 and the states involved were Perlis, Kedah, Terengganu, Pahang and Kuala Lumpur. The implementation of Phase 2 began in the year 2001 and it was done in the state of Pulau Pinang, Perak, Selangor, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka, Johor and Kelantan. Later in the year 2002 , the applications used for Phase 1 was upgraded to streamline with Phase 2 which in turn facilitate maintainance work.
The objective of the CLRS is to modernise the procedures of registration of land titles and dealings to make them more cost-effective without neglecting the security of the procedures, and to facilitate the acquisition of land related information. This system involves manual and computerised work procedures. The CLRS will be upgraded / updated periodically to cater current needs of the land office without neglecting the security of the system so that the system will comply with the NLC. Computerised Land Management Section will always conduct monitoring and improvement on the system in order to fulfill the needs and request of land offices, and overcome the problems of land encroachment, fabrication of titles and so on. In additon, improvement on system can ensure system function effectively, and data secured.
