3-point agenda to deploy LBS for Indian smart cities suggested

India: According to Vandana Kumari Jena, Secretary, Department of Land Resources, Ministry of Rural Development, “The proposed National Land Use Policy which seeks to regulate land use efficiently would help in augmenting the use of waste and non-cultivable land, and integrating them with Location Based Services (LBS) would make it easier to update and maintain digitised land records.” Speaking about LBS’ potential to transform the Indian landscape, she added that, so far, 23 states have digitised their records and 24 states have computerised registration for land. Only 10 states have integrated the two systems.
