Service Excellence of Land Affairs in Tangerang Regency
Tangerang Regency Land Affairs Office

A. Problem Analysis

 1. What was the problem before the implementation of the initiative?
Tangerang Regency is a newly formed administration. It is at the moment going through a rapid changes and development, both physically and socially. Its role has long been to support the capital city Jakarta, and that role comes with various challenges such as: • A very high demand of land for residential, service and industrial purposes • Intense demand for investment • Increasing rate of land ownership transfer • High rate of economic growth as signified by the rate of funds distributed to the society by commercial banks In the past, members of the public must go through a long and complicated bureaucracy to be able to, for example, register their ownership of certain property. The society must bear an increasing economic cost in relation to their land because long bureaucracy created opportunity for illegal brokerage, in which certain party -outsider or sometimes public servant inside Land Affairs Office- offer landowners certain ways of speed things up. Illegal brokerage of government service is especially damaging when they include “slow things down” as their strategy to increase the demand for the speedy lane. Separately or as a consequent, the society would seldom receive hospitality from public servant in the front desks. Things were made worse by the fact that the old system caused uncertainty in land-related administration.

B. Strategic Approach

 2. What was the solution?
The National Land Affairs Agency initiated Public Service Bureaucracy Reform and Tangerang Regency followed it up in collaboration with Indonesian Notary Public Association, Real Estate Indonesia and Banten Provincial Government. • One Day Service • Weekend Service • Non Stop Service • Customer Service and Public Report Service • Service Excellent

 3. How did the initiative solve the problem and improve people’s lives?
a. One Day Service We simplify and shorten the bureaucracy for the administration of the following service that they all can be done in one day: 1) Certificate Verification 2) Certificate Upgrading 3) Debt Clearance 4) Certificate Blockage Registration 5) Land-Claim Registration 6) Land Registration Certificate 7) Registration of Land Ownership Certificate 8) Certificate Prolongation 9) Information on Land Value Zone b. Quick Wins Service Quick service, in which applications can be processed from start to finished in 1 day (license type 1-9), 5 days for the transfer of Land Utility Rights and 7 days for the registration of land in Asset-based Lending. In detail, this service consists of 11 licences 1) Certificate Verification 2) Certificate Upgrading 3) Debt Clearance 4) Certificate Blockage Registration 5) Land-Claim Registration 6) Land Registration Certificate 7) Registration of Land Ownership Certificate 8) Certificate Prolongation 9) Information on Land Value Zone 10) Rights transfer 11) Registration of asset-based Lending c. Weekend Service As the name suggest, our office creates shifts so that it can still provide service at the weekends and allows public to manage their land-related administration d. Non Stop Service Employee shifts are also utilized to allow our service to continue during launch break, (12 to 1 pm in Indonesia). e. Customer Service and Public Report Service f. Service Excellent g. Land Affairs Office of Tangerang Regency put special attention on the hospitality of its employee. They are encouraged to greet every customer with smile. Even the decency of their appearance is of a special concern.

C. Execution and Implementation

 4. In which ways is the initiative creative and innovative?
The first step for realization of Service Excellence is the restructuring of the front desk. Front desks for various certificate registrations were previously separated and unorganized. We prepared a single reception room to eliminate confusion, and ensured that the publics are well informed of the service flow. A feature video is available to achieve this goal. The next step is to reorganize the human resources. Staffs are transferred according the qualifications requirement, and given service and motivational trainings alongside various team-building activities. One key element in accelerating the process of finishing the certificates is the transfer of documents signing authority and allows several processes to takes only one day, even at the weekends. Acting sporadically in providing service will bring less benefit for the public when compared coordinating it with other related parties. We socialized our programs to Provincial Government, Notary Publics, District Heads, Real Estate Indonesia and mass media. Coordination between all staffs in Tangerang Regency Land Affairs Office is conducted daily, while unit heads meet once a week to consolidate the program. We recognize staff’s high performance through reward and punishment system, with the basis of their service towards the public. It is expected that they will compete to excel in their respective job.
