Minister Williams highlighted one of the issues at the Registry in Georgetown, which is the long period of time it takes to process documents. The question of query is also another issue. The Minister urged them to establish a check list, and deal with them in a holistic, rather than in an isolated manner in order to further reduce the time.
According to the Assistant Registrar, Reza Manraj, the registry has been very prompt, in terms of providing excellent service time for conveyances. She said business registration is being done instantaneously.
Nevertheless, there is need for improvement and one of the steps currently being taken to better the service is the establishment of a vault which will be linked to a scanner to secure all records. This will discontinue the need to call the Georgetown or Essequibo Registries for any information.
Will be of interest to see what specific improvements the PNC government will implement at this office.
