BANGALORE: It looks like finally Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has found a solution to avoid allocation of funds to the road works which have already been done. Thanks to their project of assigning Unique Property Identification  numbers to all the properties that come under BBMP. All the roads including  arterial and sub-arterial roads have also got unique street/road numbers.

BBMP has introduced a system to assign unique identity numbers to each property which was inaugurated by the Chief Minister a few days back. This number is a combination of ward number, unique street number and the property number. Thus BBMP has given unique numbers to 94,260 roads covering 12,000 km of arterial and sub-arterial roads in Bangalore.

Manjunath Raju, Chairman to Taxation and Finance Committee said this system can help BBMP create road history, under which details like the length and breadth of the roads will be included.

Manjunath said that they can include this while issuing work order for contractors. “With this new system, duplication of work will be nullified. This will be transparent and irregularities can be avoided,” he added.

Explaining the uniqueness of the number, sources from BBMP said that roads from north to south are given odd numbers, while those from east to west bear even numbers.
