March 8- Haryana Government has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Survey of India for large  scale mapping using UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) / Drone for Revenue, Urban and Rural area including ground control network and delivery of geo-referenced cadastral revenue maps for state of Haryana. The project will cover about 44,000 sq. Km, covering entire state of Haryana.

          The MoU was signed by Surveyor General of India, Lt. General Girish Kumar VSM, on behalf of Survey of India and by Secretary Revenue, Mr Vijayendra Kumar on behalf of Haryana Government in the presence of Chief Minister Mr Manohar Lal and Revenue Minister Capt. Abhimanyu. The Additional Chief Secretary, Revenue and Disaster Management, Mrs Keshni Anand Arora, Principal Secretary to Chief Minister, Mr Rajesh Khullar, Additional Principal Secretary to Chief Minister, Mr V. Umashankar, Additional Chief Secretary, Finance, Mr T.V.S.N. Prasad, Additional Chief Secretary, Town and Country Planning, Mr A.K. Singh, besides other officers were present in the meeting.

          The delivery of complete project is around 18 months. A digitized, geo-referenced, accurate and up-to-date map of each land Parcel and each property in urban areas and village Lal dora (Abadi deh) will get generated. The Drone/UAV based survey not only takes lesser time but also costs lesser than the traditional manual one and there is no human interference. The project aims to replace the existing manual revenue maps with updated geo-referenced digitized cadastral maps and map of every property, which will enhance the efficiency of revenue administration and help to better plan projects for development. The project will help in unlocking the value of each property within Lal Dora. 

          Accurate change detection, using high resolution imagery will help in identification of true urban growth development process. The unplanned settlements and areas where housing is not in compliance with current planning and building regulations will be identified to help  enforcement and effective action before the construction attains huge proportions.
