BBMP makes Rajakaluve / Storm Water Drain Maps public

8/17/2016 Vinay kumar V 4 Comments

The Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) on Saturday published details of rajakaluve encroachments on its website. The exhaustive list was uploaded in three main folders, 83 sub-folders and 1,923 revenue maps on the palike website.

Under the title, Survey Settlement and Land Records (SSLR-Revenue Maps) online, the BBMP website has classified details into three folders. They are: Bangalore East, Bangalore North and Bangalore North Add. The sub-folder provides a list of areas coming under these zones while another click gives details of encroachment and the survey numbers.

The documents are in Kannada and not optimized for web viewing, however, if there is a storm water drain passing through a survey number the file name includes the survey number. Some of the village level folders also contain the village map which gives you a rough idea of the SWD. It's difficult to interpret these maps and if you find your survey number it's better to approach the revenue department for more information.

BBMP commissioner N Manjunath Prasad told Deccan Herald, “We have uploaded land records on the website as it is. Our revenue officials are working on providing separate details on encroachments based on each ward. The work is expected to be over by Sunday and we would publish a ward-wise list on Monday,” he said.

The commissioner also said the BBMP would upload geographic information system (GIS)-based maps of the rajakaluve network on the website shortly.

"This will help the general public make an informed decision before buying the property. The buyers will be able to look for information such as the survey number, land location as well as encroachment-related details on the website," he added.

The GIS map will have the rajakaluve network in it. If buyers feel there is a drain passing through the property, they can approach the revenue department for confirmation and further details," he added.

BBMP has separately hosted more detailed information for certain survey numbers which are affected by the current encroachment drive.
