Mandu: If everything goes well according to the plan, each house in Mandu town will soon have a ‘digital door’, a unique digital numbering system, based on the geospatial location.
As part of Digital India campaign, Madhya Pradesh government has chosen Mandu town for a pilot project to create ‘digital door’ for houses in the town.
According to information, an expert team from Hyderabad led by Shravan Kumar began the project survey in all the 15 wards of the town from Monday. The team also prepared ‘digital door addresses’, put it on the door and uploaded the pictures of houses on internet under the survey. Officials informed anyone wishing to add door number, can contact nagar panchayat for enlistment. Under the project, a metal plate containing navigation details and address location services will be installed at each house to make it searchable through GPS. Each house (each address) will be given an eightdigit alphanumeric code, termed as ‘standardised digital address number’.
Once implemented, all the houses equipped with the number can be precisely tracked through Global Positioning System (GPS) on Google Maps. Property tax details will also be synchronised with the service to detect tax evasion.
