The Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) now has another feather in its cap.
The World e-Governments Organisation of Cities and Local Governments (WeGO) will award the Palike for its GIS based Property Identification (PID) Number system on November 12 in Spain.
Speaking to reporters on Friday, Mayor D Venkatesh Murthy said more than 150 city corporations had applied for the award.
“The BBMP has won the award under e-governance category,” he said.
The mayor along with Deputy Mayor L Srinivas, present and former chairman (Taxation and Finance) Muneendra Kumar and Manjunath Raju, IT advisor to Commissioner Sheshadri, will go to Barcelona to receive the award next month.
PID for More Services
The mayor said they are planning to upgrade the present PID system.
“At present, property owners are under the net. The service will also be extended to water supply, street light, road and tree histories under GIS,” Murthy said.
