Property tax to be integrated with GIS in Bangalore

Bangalore, India, 22 July 2006: The BMP (Bangalore Mahanagara Palike) in partnership with eGovernments Foundation has chalked out a scheme which has programmes that would be launched at the rate of one a month. To start with, property tax would be integrated with GIS, which means, there would be no lapses in declaring a citizen’s exact property dimensions.

Srikanth Nadhamuni, Managing Trustee, eGovernments Foundation, said the entire exercise was a completely internet-driven enterprise. “There will be English and Kannada content. It will make for an interactive site where a complaint is filed online by a citizen and tracked later. The status is also monitored with the complaint tracking system.” He added. The site would be interactive and transactional and will replace the existing stagnant and rarely updated www.bmponline.org.
