This bulletin summarizes recent key developments related to the introduction of the new e-services in the region. DR Analytica is directly engaged in these activities on the ground and could provide additional information on request.
A new e-mortgage service was launched on the state e-government portal. According to the press-release of the Ministry of Transport, Communications and High Technologies, since August 10, persons wishing to obtain a mortgage under the Azerbaijan Mortgage Fund (AMF) can apply for a loan on the e-government portal. In order to register for the service, the electronic signature is required. The service allows applying for a mortgage without visiting the bank. Also, using a personal cabinet, indicating their income and expenses, users will be able to calculate the terms of the loan. However, the final decision on the mortgage will be approved by the bank.
Mortgage loans are issued in the national currency only and are available solely for Azerbaijani citizens. The loans can be issued for a period of 3 to 25 years, while the maximum loan amount should not exceed 100,000 manats (about USD $58,800). The annual interest cannot exceed 8%. The down payment is 15-25%.
The Ministry of Labor and Social Development with the support of the German Corporation for International Cooperation (GIZ) will launch an Internet portal for job search. The portal will unite all data on the positions available on the job market. In addition to the assistance with the employment, the new portal will also provide the opportunities for professional training for the positions in demand on the labor market.
Meanwhile, Ministry of Education and Science will use WhatsApp to communicate with citizens and employees of the education sector. As the press service of the ministry informs, you can use the service by sending a message to the number 0700 744 748. It is expected that citizens will promptly express complaints and wishes about the work of the departments of education, kindergartens, schools, and universities, as well as leave feedback on the ongoing reforms in this sphere. Teachers and instructors will also be able to share offers on improving the quality of educational services directly to the Ministry.
The Department of Land Resources and the State Cadaster of Tashkent provided an online service for checking real estate data by the cadastral number. According to the Department’s press service, the launch of the service is due to the increased volume of applications from citizens and legal entities on clarifying the inventory value of real estate and other details. At this moment, the database allows users to find information on the technical characteristics of real estate, its inventory value, the current address and data on the existence of a ban or arrest on the property. In the future, users of the service will be able to find out their cadastral number at the address, receive notifications on the readiness of cadastral documents, and monitor the execution of the order for processing documents.
