- Advertisement -

New Delhi, November 19

With almost 9,800 acres of military land having being encroached upon across the country, the Ministry of Defence today launched a land management system to have better efficiency.

This will integrate several mapping tools into the existing “Raksha Bhoomi” software, which was launched with the data updated in 2011. The LMS developed by the Department of Defence in conjunction with the Director General Defence Estates and the Armed forces was formally launched by Rajnath Singh on Thursday.

The software, apart from capturing the textual details of all proposals relating to defence management, integrates these details as well as other relevant aspects, including satellite imagery of the area and other amenities.

The intra-net portal will digitise all requests of defence land management received by the department in future. It is also in process of progressively capturing archival data into the system.

All data for cases since 2016 have already been captured and are available in the portal. Progressively, data of the prior period will also be entered in the portal which is meant only for departmental use and it is not open for the public. — TNS
