A smart move by Mussoorie Dehradun Development Authority (MDDA) for users to figure it out the empty land left for construction. MDDA has decided to digitize its land usage record, which will benefit the users to see the exact land use in the city and appropriately plan their constructions. It will help in reducing the number of maps that are rejected on a daily basis because of land use, officials said. However, for making accessible on the public domain the entire process it will take up to six months, they added.
According to Ashish Srivastav, vice-chairman, MDDA said, “Essentially, the master plan will be uploaded to our website that will show all the land usage in Dehradun and Mussoorie. This will be available for anyone planning any kind of construction. Many a time, maps are rejected by us because of the land usage. However, collecting data and making it available online is a long process and will take at least six months.”
The authority is also planning on making it feasible that only the maps which have the required details can be uploaded to their website for approval. “We are working on a system that will check if maps fulfil the required parameters and can be uploaded. And if there is a mistake, users will be notified at the earliest,” Srivastav added.
