Panchkula, India: Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) in India is considering preparing a digital map of Panchkula city for resident welfare association (RWAs) and market associations. It aims to prevent encroachments in residential as well as market areas. By checking on the digital map, residents can see whether there is encroachment or not and accordingly complaint to HUDA.
The map will also provide information like width of road, area of park, area of parking area, width of back lane, for which residents visit HUDA office daily. A senior official of HUDA said that on an average every month they receive 20 such queries and complaints from residents. ”Loads of time is wasted in solving these. With the digital map, this time will be saved,” he added.
Huda administrator Rajender Kataria said, ”We are trying to prepare these maps as early as possible. The motive behind this move is to minimise the rush of residents to HUDA office and to provide information at their doorstep.”
