Defence Ministry surveys its land, takes measures for its safety « CmaTrends


Modern survey applied sciences like Electronic Total Station (ETS) and Differential Global Positioning System (DGPS) have been used within the survey, and to additional pace up the method, drone and satellite tv for pc imagery have been leveraged for dependable, strong and time-bound outcomes.

“The entire exercise of survey of about 1.61 lakh acres of defence land inside cantonments and 16.17 lakh acres outside cantonments (total 17.78 lakh acres) survey has been completed. It is a remarkable achievement since, for the first time after independence, entire defence land has been surveyed by using latest survey technology and in a large number of pockets in association with the revenue authorities of various state governments. The magnitude of land holding, location of land in approximately 4,900 pockets across the country, inaccessible terrain in many places and association of various stakeholders makes this survey one of the largest land surveys in the country,” the Defence Ministry stated.

For the primary time, drone imagery-based expertise was used for survey of lakhs of acres of protection land in Rajasthan. The total space was surveyed with the assistance of the Surveyor General of India in a matter of weeks, which earlier used to take years. Besides this, satellite tv for pc imagery-based survey was executed for the primary time for a lot of defence land pockets, particularly for sure pockets once more measuring lakhs acres of defence land. 3D Modelling methods for higher visualisation of defence land within the hilly areas have additionally been launched by utilising Digital Elevation Model (DEM) in affiliation with Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC).

As per the data maintained by Defence Estates Offices, the Ministry of Defence owns giant tracts of land admeasuring about 17.99 lakh acres out of which roughly 1.61 lakh acres is located throughout the 62 notified Cantonments and about 16.38 lakh acres are unfold throughout many pockets outdoors the Cantonments.
