AMRUT programme: New GIS-based masterplan for Panaji

Under the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT), Imagine Panaji Smart City Development Pvt Ltd (IPSCDL) plans to prepare a new Geographic Information System (GIS) based masterplan for Panaji using high-resolution satellite imagery provided by the National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC), Hyderabad.

Similar attempts to develop a master plan have been undertaken previously in 2013 and 2017. According to sources, unlike the earlier ones, which had a 1:10,000 scale, the GIS-based master plan will be mapped at a 1:4,000 scale. The plan will geo-tag buildings and all structures in the capital, including bridges, infrastructure and open spaces.

While the government plans to prepare GIS-based master plans for 500 cities in India, Panaji is one of the 25 cities chosen by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA) as part of the first phase.

The Goa government has already formed a consultancy evaluation and review committee (CERC), which met recently to review the progress made to select a consultant to prepare the masterplan.

According to data available, MoHUA has released the first instalment of Rs 23.7 lakh to IPSCDL under the sub-scheme on the formulation of the local area plan (LAP) and town planning scheme (TPS) under AMRUT.

Formulation of master plans starts with base map preparation, existing land use surveys and collection of socio-economic data necessary for reviewing the existing situation and proposing the future land use plan.

The state high-powered steering committee (SHPSC) had approved the reparation of the master plan using GIS in the state annual action plan (SAAP) in January 2016.

In 2017, IPSCDL announced that it had started preparing a GIS-based masterplan by integrating geo-spatial data with a door-to-door survey that aimed to improve tax collection and prevent revenue leakages.

The Corporation of Panaji City (CCP) had prepared a city development plan (CDP) in 2007. In 2013, CRISIL risk infrastructure revised the CDP with the funding obtained through the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) scheme.

During the same period, the former Chief Minister and the then Panaji MLA Manohar Parrikar had assigned LKS India Pvt Ltd to prepare a holistic masterplan for Panaji.
