Diyar Al Muharraq Becomes First Real Estate Developer to Receive Building Licenses for Projects through Benayat Building Permit Portal

Manama, Bahrain, 9th December 2018: Diyar Al Muharraq, one of the leading urban developers in the Kingdom of Bahrain, has announced its adoption of the Benayat system for the issuance of building permits for the construction of the City’s projects, thus enabling the Company to benefit from the services it provides.

As a result, Diyar Al Muharraq has now officially received licenses to build 173 residential villas in the city. Benayat is an electronic system for issuing building permits for all types of projects in the Kingdom of Bahrain, whether Residential, Investment, Commercial or Industrial. The system was inaugurated by His Royal Highness Prince Salman Bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander and First Deputy Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Bahrain, during the Bahrain Government Forum 2018.

Benayat's platform provides users with enhanced services of high efficiency and productivity, contributing to the pace of investment, real estate and construction activities in the Kingdom, thus supporting the country's economic vision. By utilizing an interactive map that provides key information for land parcels, Benayat allows applicants to obtain all necessary information to prepare drawings and documents required to apply for a building permit, and pay building permit related fees.

Speaking on the occasion, Chief Executive Officer of Diyar Al Muharraq, Dr. Maher Al Shaer said: “The introduction of the Benayat platform forms a dynamic, practical and comprehensive mechanism for the issuance of building permits. And in line with our keenness to comply with all building and construction regulations, we have utilized this building permit portal to issue licenses necessary to construct 173 villas throughout the development, and will continue to do so henceforth in the completion of our master-planned city. I would like to take this opportunity to thank His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander and First Deputy Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Bahrain for his great interest and guidance in the growth of both the real estate development sector in the Kingdom and the Bahraini economy. I would also like to commend all the official parties involved in the development and creation of this pioneering platform, which helps and eases the process of obtaining building licenses as well as plays an important role in consolidating communication between all concerned parties. We at Diyar Al Muharraq take great pride in being the first company in the Kingdom of Bahrain to take advantage of this platform, and through precedents such as this, we look forward to furthering the cooperation between the public and private sectors.”

Diyar Al Muharraq is a unique master planned city for the people of Bahrain offering range of housing options and quality lifestyle. Diyar Al Muharraq offers a cohesive mix of residential and commercial properties with a strong line-up of projects aimed at creating a long term and sophisticated township.
