For ensuring proprietary rights to the people of the state within Lal Lakir at the earliest, Punjab Revenue, Rehabilitation and Disaster Management Minister Mrs. Aruna Chaudhary, on Wednesday demanded more drones to expedite mapping in villages under ‘Mera Ghar Mere Naam’ Scheme.
Presiding over a high level meeting with the officials of Survey of India at Punjab Bhawan here, Mrs. Chaudhary said the state needs an adequate quantity of drones to speed up digital mapping in all districts, while directing to start the survey across the state by December end.
