The ProZorro system starts auctions for the sale of land, Delo reports, citing Maxim Nefedov, First Deputy Minister of Economic Development and Trade.
The first lots in the form of land lease rights will appear in November in the framework of the joint pilot project of the state enterprise “Prozorro.Sale” and the StateGeoCadastre. Then the first transparent electronic trading will take place.
“We are taking one more step towards online land auctions,” said Alexander Kolotilin, Acting Heads of the StateGeoCadastre.
They have been preparing for the auctions, for a few months. After analyzing the Land Code, Prozorro and the Geocadastre found that it was not possible to quickly change the procedure of a land auction.
According to Alexei Sobolev, Acting Director of the State Enterprise “Prozorro.Sale”, they decided to go a difficult but legal way, strictly following the law. Today the team has already completed the development of a minimum viable product (MVP).
This is only the initial stage of work with land auctions. Their founders are testing sites, getting the first lots. “This is a huge part of IT-works,” concludes Sobolev.
As we wrote earlier, the cost of agricultural land at auctions is up to $ 1000 per hectare.
