416 *Real Estate Registry: Is there a central registry of domestic real estate publicly available online? No, there is no central registry of real estate.
 Data Date: 2019

Notes

 
According to the World Bank Doing Business report for Pakistan (2019), anyone who pays the official fee can obtain information on land ownership at the agency in charge of immovable property registration in the largest business city. However, the report indicates that the majority of tile or deed records, as well as the majority of maps of land plots are kept in paper format. For the State of Punjab, we found an official website for the land registry where GIS and records search seem to be under development. Thus, because every State operates a separate registry, we conclude that Pakistan does not have a central registry for domestic real estate.
