The Ministry of Lands and Public Works is in the process of completing an exercise to roll out cashless transaction policy in all offices of the State Department for Lands and Physical. Teams flagged off from Nairobi on Monday are traversing the country to install computers and internet accessories, train staff and sensitize the public.

The teams, which are working under the guidance of PS Generali Nixon Korir, are also conducting an audit of the status of Land offices and are scheduled to complete the task in the next 10 days.

The Reconnaissance and Ardhipay Roll Out exercise in Lands offices across the country is progressing well with eight teams from Ardhi House conducting training and distributing equipment.

The teams are also collecting an inventory of the challenges and strengths of every station in preparation for the full digitization of Lands services.

Digitization of records and automation of Lands services has already been achieved in Nairobi and the public can conduct transactions by opening an account on the Ardhi Sasa website.

 Kenyans across the count can also use Ardhisasa to pay their land rent.

The cashless transaction policy is aimed at reducing the loss of revenue, reducing cost of accessing services and is also in line with the directives of H.E President William Ruto on collection of Government revenue.
