Why in news: Major public assets of 55 gram panchayats under Mangaluru taluk are now available online. In a first-of-its-kind exercise in the State, the assets have been spatially mapped on a pilot basis under the Bhuvan Panchayats project of the government. 

About the Project:

  • It is a a joint initiative by ISRO, Dakshina Kannada Zilla Panchayat, and Alva’s Institute of Engineering and Technology, Moodbidri
  • The assets that are documented are available on www.bhuvan-panchayat. nrsc.gov.in
  • The mapping was done in 25 days. Of 281 public assets identified by the National Remote Sensing Centre, ISRO, 192 categories of assets were found in Mangaluru taluk

Benefit:

  • It would help the panchayat in planning its future public projects. For example, it has been found that there are only two rainwater harvesting structures against 277 public open well-cum-borewells.
  • We can decide our priorities on the need to construct recharging structures as well as to replenish the groundwater
  • The mapping has found that the taluk (excluding the jurisdiction of Mangaluru City Corporation and other urban local bodies) has 19 check dams and 22 rivers. The data helps in planning future check dams as well.
  • Every planner would be equipped with the requirements of the village with this project. It also helps in drawing inferences.
  • The mapping found 111 banks under the jurisdiction of 55 panchayats indicating high commercial activity.
