Computer Problem Hurts Squatters List Compilation in Dagon Seikkan


YANGON- The government started compiling a list of squatters from Dagon Seikkan Township, Yangon Region, at the Yuzana Garden Housing Sale Centre and Panintayarma Monastery in Dagon Seikkan Township on Tuesday, said MP Nyi Nyi from the No 1 Constituency of Dagon Myothit (South).

The squatters list will be completed in two to three.

“ In Dagon Seikkan Township, squatters lists were being collected on December 12. The numbers of squatters from Dagon Seikkan Township was double or triple compared to Dagon Myothit (South),” said Nyi Nyi.

“ The authorities said they had difficulty with computer systems because their server was hacked on December 12. That’s why they collected the names of only 250 squatters when 500 could have been recorded. We don’t yet have the new squatters list,” said Nyi Nyi.

Phyo Min Thein, Yangon Chief Minister, said on May 25th that authorities would compile lists of squatters in the Yangon Region and would provide rehabilitation programmes for them.

That’s why Pilot Project as a first time was launched from September 2 to 20th. But, there have been technical errors, new squatters and some rich men who had to register as a squatter.

“ In Dagon Myothit (South), there are 5,591 squatter families. In Dagon Seikkan, there are about 15,000 squatter families according to the old ground list. The amount in Dagon Seikkan Township is increased three times than the Dagon Myothit (South),” said MP Nyi Nyi.

The Yangon Region Government Committee will collect the squatters list in four districts: Dagon South, Dagon Seikkan, Dagon North, Dagon East, North Oakkalapa and Thakayta Townships in east district, Mayangone and Ahlon Townships in west district, Thanlyin, Kyauktan and Dala Townships in south district and Shwepyitha and Hlaingthaya Townships in north district.
