Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) will execute digital house-numbering programme aided by the World Bank soon.
Moosapet suburb of Hyderabad has been being selected for this project where every house within GHMC limits will be given a unique number. This house-numbering system will lead to more property tax generation too, said a GHMC official.
The civic body failed to collect expected property tax target due to lack of proper house numbers earlier.
For implementing it in all the 26-lakh households, the World Bank has been approached for a loan.
The whole cost of the project is Rs 70 crore and the World Bank has asked GHMC to submit the expression of interest before 30 May. The initial thought was to implement this project in a Public-Private partnership (PPP) mode, said K Srinivas Rao, GHMC Director of house numbering cell.
For the integration with GHMC database, the civic body is geotagging the houses with a 14 digit unique number.
