The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has through the Abuja Geographic Information Systems (AGIS) and the Land Administration Department concluded all arrangements to receive only payments made through online for its services.
The director, Abuja Geographical Information System (AGIS), Dr. Isa Ibrahim Jalo, stated this Monday in Abuja after meeting with top management staff of the organisation.
Jalo stated that the migration to an online payment system has become necessary for improved service delivery to the public and to also, ease customers’ payments, which can be made at their comfort zone.
He stated that these payments would be done through the REMITA platform which can also be accessed through a customer’s mobile phones, desktop and laptops, because bills will be generated electronically.
He said the payments for these services include the Fresh Application, Ground Rents, Legal Search, payment for Premium, Power of Attorney, Deed of Assignment, obtaining Certified True Copy, Title registration, application for sub-divisions, Deed of sub-Lease, as well as consent to assign.
He reiterated that from January 1, 2021, all revenue accruing to AGIS/Lands will be migrated to the REMITA online platform.
He said: “This action has become necessary in furtherance of the implementation of the Treasury Single Account (TSA) and the determination of the government to optimise its revenue collections.
“All individuals and corporate organisations doing business with AGIS and FCT Land Administration Department should note, that effective January 2021, all revenue collections are expected to be on the REMITA platform only,” he added.
He further stated that AGIS / Lands Department are already finalising all necessary arrangements to make the migration hitch free, adding that this action is also in compliance with the TSA Account policy and principles of the Ease of Doing Business of the federal government.
