Property Survey of Shillong Municipality

The government launches The North Eastern Region Capital Cities Development Investment Program (NERCCDIP) to bring urban development in North Eastern Region (NER) like Agartala, Aizwal, Gangtok, Kohima, and Shillong. The government of Meghalaya also formed the State Investment Project Management and Implementation Unit especially in Shillong to initiate the project.
One of the primary reasons for SIMPU to implement such a project is to carry out a survey of property tax for 27 wards in Shillong Municipal Board (SMB). For this Geographical Information System (GIS) would act as a facilitator. In this regard they wanted CyberSWIFT to carry out the survey of properties for assessing the property tax in Shillong.
