Did You Illegally Extend Your Property? BMC Is Watching From The Top
To monitor illegal construction, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) is now making use of technology. After its failure to curb rising illegal construction in India's financial capital, the municipal corporation is now using Light Detection and Ranging technology to video-record each property with a 360° view. While sizing up the property, the technology will also enable the BMC to measure the road on which a building is standing - this will help it make sure no encroachment of public land takes place.
