Land register to get back on track as tender is launched
Τhe company responsible for drawing up the Greek land register, the National Cadastre & Mapping Agency (EKHA), has launched a tender for the final phase of the project, budgeted at 465 million euros and set to be completed by 2020.
The project is expected to cost the state 399 million euros over the next four years, the bulk of which – 148.6 million euros – will be tacked onto the 2019 budget. The Environment Ministry, meanwhile, is awaiting a response after applying for funding of 83.5 million euros from the European Union.
Greece is the only country in the EU without a cadastre. The registration of all land and properties in the country was meant to be completed by 2008 but has been repeatedly delayed by mix-ups, red tape and disputes.
