DUBAI, June 11, 2019

Dubai Land Department (DLD) will start providing telecom services to its customers through Ejari application via connectivity with Etisalat, after signing an agreement with Emirates Telecommunication Group Company.

The memorandum of understanding (MoU) regarding 'Ejari' system and the Real Estate Blockchain technology, comes in line with the parties' keenness to implement smart government standards (paperless management, reduction of customer visits, and digital contracts), the blockchain strategy, and facilitate customer procedures, reported state news agency Wam.

Under the MoU, the department will determine the quality of services related to the Ejari application and Real Estate Blockchain technology, and will provide all the necessary capabilities, providing Etisalat with a non-exclusive right to include its services when registering Ejari contracts, including Internet services and land-line and mobile phone lines.

DLD will also provide the necessary technical training and consultancy related to Ejari application to Etisalat as well as the necessary support that enables them to achieve electronic connectivity between the parties’ systems related to this application.

Sultan Butti bin Mejren, director-general of DLD, said: "We registered an important global technical milestone after adopting the blockchain system as part of our keenness to be aligned with the Dubai Blockchain Strategy.

In turn, Abdullah Salem Al Mana, general manager, Dubai Region, Etisalat, stated: "Today’s partnership with DLD is in line with our strategy and vision ‘Driving the Digital Future to Empower Societies’ to deliver advanced solutions via Ejari system and application to enable ease of transactions and improve business efficiency for all their customers. This will also facilitate improved, simplified, and effective services for all contracting parties of DLD."

Etisalat will educate all concerned staff from both parties, enabling them to deal with the requirements through Ejari system.

In line with the terms of the MoU, Etisalat expressed its commitment to communicate with DLD’s support team and inform them of any defect, suggestions, or observations to improve and develop Ejari system or offers proposed by them. In the second phase, Etisalat will be making the necessary preparations to link itself with the Ejari database on real estate blockchain in order to provide integrated services with DLD.
