The objectives of electronic land certificates are essential for the community due to the following reasons:


2.1 Reducing the Risk of Loss and Damage

The main purpose of using electronic land certificates is to reduce the risks that may arise due to loss, theft, or damage caused by disasters, fires, and other threats. By using electronic format, the security and integrity of information related to land ownership can be more effectively maintained.


2.2 Ease in Data Management

The implementation of electronic land certificates also aims to facilitate data management. With electronic processes, land-related data can be handled more efficiently, saving costs, and improving the confidentiality and security of data. Thus, the accuracy and availability of land ownership information can be better maintained.


3. Advantages of Electronic Land Certificates

Electronic land certificates offer several significant advantages in various aspects. Some of them include:


3.1 Efficiency in Issuance Time

Electronic land certificates provide advantages in terms of efficiency in issuance time. The process of issuing certificates becomes faster and more efficient, reducing waiting times typically associated with the production of physical documents. This can accelerate property transactions and provide direct benefits to certificate holders.


3.2 Ease in Defense Administration Processes

Another advantage of electronic land certificates lies in the ease of administrative processes, particularly related to buying and selling transactions and encumbrances. With electronic formats, administrative processes become smoother, reducing the complexities often associated with physical documents. This can help property owners, stakeholders, and relevant agencies process documents more efficiently.


3.3 Minimizing Risks of Counterfeit and Duplicate Certificates

Electronic land certificates also provide additional security by minimizing the risks associated with counterfeit and duplicate certificates. Electronic formats allow for the adoption of more sophisticated security technologies, such as digital signatures and data encryption. This can provide stronger protection against certificate forgery attempts, thereby increasing trust in property transactions and the authenticity of land ownership documents.
