The GIS based ‘Automatic Water Supply System’ for citizens of Cantonment Boards was recently launched by Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on the occasion of Defence Estates Day 2021.
The module of GIS based Water Supply system for Cantonment Boards has been developed by Bhaskaracharya Institute for Space Applications and Geo informatics under the guidance of Defence Secretary and Director General of Defence Estates, Delhi.
It is completely automated which provides facility to its citizen to identify the location of water supply connection. It automatically determines nearest water pipeline. This GIS system is first of its kind in the country.
It is based on ‘minimum government’. It supports the concept of ‘maximum governance’ as there is no manual intervention for clearance or sanction of the water connection.
