A first of its kind in the country, the portal will have GIS-based information about the city and will enable citizens to find locations of hotels, healthcare centres and government offices and status of various online services, to name a few.

The Bhubaneswar Development Authority’s (BDA) move is inspired by Singapore, which has a similar portal for its citizens. The portal has been developed jointly by the BDA and National Informatics Centre Services Inc, a central government-owned department. The BDA has released Rs 2.49 crore to NICSI to develop the portal.

BDA sources said the portal integrates geo-spatial data of all the government and private agencies, which might be useful to denizens and tourists.

The BDA has released Rs 2.49 crore to NICSI to develop the portal.

This e-platform has links of smart city mission directorate, BDA, Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation, smart city Bhubaneswar, ministry of urban development and housing and urban development department. The portal is being called ‘Bhubaneswar One’ because in one platform, citizens can scan the GIS map and obtain information about the services by clicking the links that have been created in the website,” said a BDA spokesperson.

In the middle of the homepage of the portal, people can click on the map and locate a place of their choice. It will show direction with exact distance and relevant information. The locations, information on bus, train and flight schedules, programs in the city, ideal tourist destinations, address of hospitals and doctors, ambulance facilities, parks and playgrounds, library, shopping malls and markets will be available in the platform.

The portal will be managed by the planning department of the BDA, which will also continue to update information.

    INSTEAD OF SPENDING ₹ 1.50 crores to develop a web portal,it would have been great to spend only ₹50.00 lakhs,for installing lights in the arterial road behind Bazzar India ,Patia and clean up the choked drains,leading to flooding with slightest of rain fall.Then the road from KIIT square to kiit university needs to be one way with foot paths as in Chandrasekharpur area.I have sent pics of the drain in Patia to Srimanta Mishra,but there is not even an acknowledgement to my Mails.
