Bangalore municipal corporation to establish GIS-based data centre

Bangalore, India: To bring all civic amenities under the Global Information System (GIS), Bangalore Municipal Corporation is set to establish a data centre at its IPP centre in Malleswaram. This will be used to monitor and maintain roads, street lighting, storm water drains, electrical network and traffic control. This data can also be used by other civic agencies.

Realising that many IT companies and group housing complexes have understated the extent of their properties in the Self Assessment Scheme, BBMP has come up with a move to survey all high-value properties through the GIS. During the survey, such properties will be revaluated to increase property tax collection and will be monitored based on data in the GIS server.

To bring all civic amenities under the Global Information System (GIS), Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) is set to establish a data centre at its IPP centre in Malleswaram. This will be used to monitor and maintain roads, street lighting, storm water drains, electrical network and traffic control.

BBMP has enhanced its ambit of services for online payment. BBMP is also looking at IT to curb the duplicate “khata” racket, and will introduce a biometric document from this year.
