UAE Land Registry Makes Use Of Blockchain

The Department of Urban Planning and Municipalities (DPM) of the United Arab Emirates has partnered with India’s Tech Mahindra to launch SmartHub, a blockchain solution for land registry.

Transparent And Secure Ledger for Land Registry

SmartHub is believed to help promote traceability and transparency of records, boost security, and streamline data archiving, allowing for faster processing of land registry transactions.

The DPM hopes that SmartHub will improve the quality of life and accessibility of land registry municipal services. Ahmad Abdolsamad AlHamma, CIO of Abu Dhabi Municipality, said the UAE has embraced new technologies like blockchain and SmartHub to provide better services to the people. 

The collaboration between the DPM and Tech Mahindra, a leading digital transformation provider, is held up as an example of how the public and private sectors work together to implement the government’s digital transformation agenda.

AlHamma added that apart from the app, the municipality plans to launch many other services within the year.

Blockchain Solution to Meet Evolving Needs

The SmartHub blockchain service will store all property-related documents issued by the municipalities and verify tenancy contracts. Available in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, and Al Dhafra, the blockchain-powered app will also assist in property resales. 

Ram Ramachandran, Tech Mahindra’s General Manager and Head of the Middle East and Africa, said, “We are delighted to be a strategic digital and technology partner to the Department of Urban Planning and Municipalities (DPM) in the journey towards the enhanced government to citizen experience.”

According to Ramachandran, Tech Mahindra is committed to developing and delivering advanced technologies to address the current challenges in the world, while meeting the dynamic and evolving needs of customers.
