Government to Conduct Drone Survey in Mangalore City to Ascertain The Details Of All The Properties

To ascertain the details of all properties in Mangalore city, the urban development department has decided to conduct a drone survey, in addition to a door-to-door survey. The Mangalore Smart City Limited (MSCL) has already conducted a drone survey in 20 wards of the city corporation but the government has plans to conduct a drone survey through an agency, in the remaining 40 wards. The data obtained through the drone survey will be matched with the details of the manual survey being conducted by the officials of the Mangalotre City Corporation (MCC). The survey will help the city corporation to simplify the online property tax payment system, under the Self-Assessment Scheme (SAS).

Along with the survey, the officials will also conduct door-to-door surveys. Once the drone survey starts, it may take a minimum of six months to complete the process, as the details need to be matched with that of the door-to-door survey. Before the commencement of next financial year, the survey is expected to be completed.

There are over two lakh properties, including around 5,000 apartments in the city limits. Though the online system of property tax payment was introduced on November 1, 2021, the database of properties in the city, available on the MCC website is incomplete.
