The layer of GIS map is currently under development in the Master Plan being prepared with the help of National Remote Sensing Center in Hyderabad and Sept University of Ahmedabad. Each map to be included in the master plan will have 64 layers. In this plan available online, there will be a separate link for hospital, school, college, water pipeline, sewage line etc. On entering any Khasra number of the land, information about the land related to the number will be revealed.

Thoughts on development rules
A team at T&CP is studying Land Development Rules. The need for some modifications is being felt in the existing Land Development Rules. The demand for scrapping the provision of side MOS on small residential plot also continues. It is also possible that instead of amending the Land Development Rules, some special provisions will be added in Bhopal.
