Views: 1.4K

Bengaluru will soon have a digital numbering system for houses based on their geo-spatial location under the smart city mission project. This project will help in pinpointing addresses.

“Each address in the city will be assigned an eight-digit alphanumeric code called the standardised digital address number. Later, a centralised repository containing all the addresses will be made public,” said  Muralidhara Turuvekere, nodal officer for the smart city project in conversation with the Times of India.

Under this system, each house will be tagged on the global positioning system (GPS) so that they can be traced on the Google Maps.

“The digital system will also be extended to land parcels, where there is no property yet. The survey and subdivision numbers will be linked to the cadastral maps -maps that contain information about the owner, taxation, etc, besides geographical details -maintained by the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike and Bangalore Development Authority (BDA). This will enable quick identification of all addresses,” Turuvekere added. 

In the first phase, two lakh houses in the city will be covered. The system will also help in keeping a check on a whole range of facilities including power and water supply so that it will help civic agencies monitor the efficiency of these services.
