Drones to be used in mapping of urban areas for building infra in 18 cities, towns in Haryana

Chandigarh: The Haryana Urban Local Bodies Department will use drones in mapping of urban areas for developing infrastructure in 18 cities and towns of the state.

Dusmanta Kumar Bahera, Director of Urban Local Bodies Department, Haryana, confirmed that the Ministry of Civil Aviation had permitted the department to use drones for mapping 18 urban areas for developing their infrastructure under the Centre’s Amrut scheme.

The 18 places in which the Haryana Urban Local Bodies Department has got the permission to use drones for mapping are — Ambala, Bahadurgarh, Bhiwani, Faridabad, Gurugram, Hisar, Jind, Kaithal, Karnal, Palwal, Panchkula, Panipat, Rewari, Rohtak, Sirsa, Sonepat, Thanesar and Yamunanagar.

The ministry has granted the directorate “conditional exemption” from the Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) Rules, 2021, for one year.

Under the Central Government’s Amrut scheme, the state government plans to provide basic services — including water supply, sewerage and urban transport — to households and build amenities in cities which will improve the quality of life for all, especially the poor and the disadvantaged.

“The exemption has been allowed for data acquisition, mapping, and implementation of the web-based GIS (geographic information system) platform for the development of Amrut cities and property tax survey for Hisar, Panchkula, Ambala urban areas,” said a letter issued by the Ministry of Civil Aviation.
