The urban local bodies department of Haryana is all set to start geo-mapping of urban properties through drone cameras. With this, Haryana will become the first state to perform geo-tagging of such properties. The decision has been taken place in the meeting attended by urban local bodies minister Kavita Jain and other members.
Speaking after the meeting, Minister said once completed, it would ensure zero-errors in details of properties falling under civic bodies.
Jain further said, “This will reduce time in calculation of levies, which will make the bodies financially stronger. As of now, we have 81 civic bodies, which include 53 municipal committees, 18 municipal councils and 10 municipal corporations. After geo-tagging, agencies hired for assessment of tax will have real-time survey. This will be compiled in the mobile-based application.”
“After the survey, the agencies will share the details with National Informatics Centre (NIC). We will upload it on the websites. This feature will also enable assesse to make an online payment and file objections to notices raised by the civic body.” Jain added.
Moreover, in the initial phases, the drones will conduct geo-tagging of properties. Thereafter the data collected will be matched with the old records and assesses will be given unique identifications (UIDs). However, the entire procedure will be monitored through common servers set up at the offices of civic bodies.
Few days back in order to curb the developer’s menace, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar launched HRERA portal dedicated to Panchkula and Gurugram. This has made Haryana the first state having two Real Estate Regulatory Authorities (RERA). This will further prove to be beneficial for all the stakeholders.
