|GIS - New||
In wake of land encroachment in the heart of Odisha capital, the government has decided to use GIS to keep records of all the lands in the smart city. Odisha Space Application Centre (ORSAC) has been assigned for the GIS mapping of the land under Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC).
The land records of 65 mouzas will be digitized. In first phase, a blueprint has been prepared for Bapuji Nagar mouza with the land records of different zones including yellow zone, green zone, red zone and environment sensitive zone. As the land record of the government land is not available for now due to land encroachment, problems occur for execution of various government projects in the land. Even, the government is not able to acquire land for any project. As per the decision, the land bank will be formed and all the details of those lands will be kept in the record by using the GIS. http://odishasuntimes.com
