About:
The current Nepalese land administration system (LAS) only deals with the formal or statutory land tenure system. This includes only land that has been registered in the national cadastre. In Nepal, almost 28% out of the total area in the country is arable
and around 75% of this is formally registered in the cadastre and tenure secured. The LAS does not deal with non-statutory or informal land tenure estimated to be around 25% of the total arable land and settlements and are outside the formal cadaster.
In the lack of any firm records, this is grossly estimated to be around 10 million physical parcels on the ground. This means that a significant amount of the Nepalese population is living in informality without any spatial recognition and without security of tenure.
