INDORE: Geographic Information System (GIS) based property tax system is fast catching up with urban local bodies of India, helping in generating high revenues and keep a tab on tax thefts, said, Ravi Ranjan Guru, deputy director General, All India Institute of Local Self- Government (AIILSG).

AIILSG is consulting the government of India and urban local bodies on adopting practices for good local governance and technology adoption. The body jointly coordinated with Indore Municipal Corporation to hold the U20 meet in Indore on Thursday.

“GIS based Property system is being adopted in the country very fast across urban bodies and this is helping governments to earn high revenues. GIS based systems are used in making the master plans of cities. So technology is being adapted by civic bodies but the pace and awareness needs to be more,” said Guru.

He said, in India about 70 per cent of basic services in big urban civic bodies have moved to digital platforms and this has helped them in generating high revenues and trimming operational cost.

“The shift to digital platforms will help local bodies cut down on operational charges and bring efficiency in work. Almost 70 percent of basic work in urban local bodies of India has moved to digital networks,” said Guru.

AIILSG in collaboration with the Madhya Pradesh government is training officials and elected public representatives on urban governance. In India, AIILSG is working with 150 urban local bodies directly and indirectly.

Guru also stressed that local bodies should identify local identities and work on its development.

“Every city has some or other strengths or identity. This strength or identity should be developed using all modern technology and measures to make that identity global,” said Guru.
