Because of the tax law and the new electronic system .. “Coast Investors” decided to stop the projects and leave the land

At a time when the coup government claims that it is in the process of making amendments to what it calls the law of reconciliation in building violations, after complaints were received from many citizens and the emergence of obstacles that were revealed by reality when applying this law, which the Egyptians call the collection law, that prevented the completion of reconciliation procedures.

A number of investors in the North Coast were surprised by the issuance of a decision and its publication in one of the national newspapers that the owners of lands and projects in the North Coast must go to the agency they are affiliated with to prove their presence on the new electronic system. In the event of an attempt to register them on a new system, the concerned authorities have inventory and official papers that prove the ownership of these lands by these investors.

Investors questioned the necessity behind their request to go to prove the existence of the land they own.

They revealed that when they went to the Urban Communities Authority, they were faced with procrastination, ignoring them and not helping them to register on the new electronic system.

electronic system

A large number of North Coast investors were harmed, as they were surprised by the opening and closing of the door to prove the existence of lands in the North Coast, and when they asked to be included in the new electronic system, they were surprised by the refusal of the Development Authority of the Urban Communities Authority, on the pretext that the grace period specified by the Authority had expired while they were not aware of this The decision is just a coincidence.

In view of the large number of investors affected and not registered in the new electronic system, they decided to sit with the head of the North West Coast Development Authority, and because of his inability to solve the investors’ crisis and in order to get rid of them, the head of the agency asked them to go to the Urban Communities Authority, claiming that they would solve the matter and put them on the new electronic system The Urban Communities Authority.

Indeed, the investors resorted to the Urban Communities Authority, but they faced a major shock, as all the Vice-President of the Urban Communities Authority tried to evade and evade a solution to the crisis, and they were forced to escalate the matter to the revolutionary Housing Minister Assem Al-Jazzar, thinking that he could solve their crisis.

new law

It is noteworthy that Assem Al-Jazzar, Minister of Housing in the coup government, had claimed that a new draft law was being prepared to reconcile building violations, which is being worked on by the coup government to present it to the Sisi parliament.

Al-Jazzar said in press statements that “the law of reconciliation in some of the old building violations has passed its period and is no longer in implementation, indicating that the new law will address the situation of those who submitted reconciliation, and the conditions in the previous law did not apply to them, and those who also submitted after the expiry of the previous law’s term. And whoever did not advance in the first place to reconcile, and whoever did not violate and wants to be equal with the one who disagreed and was reconciled with, and also whoever will disagree in the future.

He also claimed that the Law of Building Violations on Agricultural Lands, which will consider the violation as “dishonorable”, is part of the forthcoming legislation to decisively confront building violations.

Concerning the problems of building permits, he stressed that there is absolutely no problem with it, and whoever has a problem comes to his office to agree on satisfactory solutions, saying, “The building requirements are a temporary measure, and the main problem is not the villages, and work is underway to amend the building law to review all the observations, as he put it.”

procrastination for investors

Despite these statements, the necessity of media speculation, the North Coast investors faced a major catastrophe in the Ministry of Housing, as they were surprised by the refusal of the director of the office of the coup minister of housing to meet them, explaining that they did not get an appointment with him to meet with them to look into the matter to present it and submit their complaint to the coup minister to solve it, while one of the basics of His work and role is to receive any investor who wants to meet the minister or file a complaint with him to look into the matter and submit it to the minister’s office.

Despite all this procrastination and the torment of the investors, some of them did not despair and knocked on the door of the director of the Citizens Service Department, and submitted all papers proving their ownership of the lands, which are lands on which they are built and not vacant land in the northern coast.

Indeed, the director of the administration did his part and submitted the matter to the Vice President of the Urban Communities Authority for the Real Estate and Commercial Affairs Sector Hatem Mahmoud Hassan, who in turn was sent to the Northwest Coast Development Authority; To ensure the investors’ ownership of the aforementioned lands, and indeed, the response was confirmed and the authority was asked to inform and warn about what needs to be done. However, the vice-chairman of the authority did not issue any decision and the authority’s employees tried to argue to the investors that they could not do anything or interfere until the prime minister of the coup issued a decision to open the door for proof Presence and placing backward investors on the electronic system.

new vortex

This refusal and evasion shocked the investors and considered it a complete obstacle to investment and development. After they spent months searching and procrastinating from all sides in land officially owned by them from the military state, they were surprised that they could not do anything about it despite having built it only after placing them on the new electronic system What Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, the leader of the bloody coup, calls it “proof of presence.”

The investors found themselves in the wind, and there is no one to solve their crisis, considering that what is happening with them and they are facing is a complete impediment to investment in the region, and they preferred selling over completing the investment due to the troubles they face and the lack of facilitation for them by the coup officials.

The investors were also surprised by the attempt by the Urban Communities Authority’s employees to enter the investors into a new cycle and file a grievance before the Chairman of the Survey and Negotiation Committee and the Head of the North West Coast Authority, Engineer Salah Qalyubi, who could not solve the crisis at first, and many investors refused to enter into endless cycles. From procrastination, which ends in nothing, and the situation remains as it is.

For these reasons, a number of investors stopped working on their projects in the northern coast to express their anger at the inaction, and a state of anger took hold of them, after the Urban Communities Authority stalled and tried to ignore them and help them register on the new electronic system called “Proof of Existence.”
