Over the weekend, the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) took a proactive step in educating Delhi residents on the art of geotagging their homes. Conducting training camps across a whopping 200 locations in the national capital, the MCD aimed to empower citizens with the knowledge and skills needed to seamlessly geotag their properties. The significance and perks of this geotagging initiative were thoroughly discussed with enthusiastic participants.

In a recent statement, the MCD highlighted the comprehensive training process, emphasizing the journey from downloading the user-friendly mobile app to successfully geotagging one’s property with accompanying photos. The civic body encouraged citizens to actively engage in this geotagging endeavor for their properties.

It was communicated to attendees that property owners who haven’t registered on the MCD property tax portal must promptly do so. The process involves property registration, UPIC generation, and subsequently, geotagging their properties. The MCD has set a deadline of January 31, 2024, for property owners to complete this registration process. Failure to comply may result in legal actions by the Municipal Corporation of Delhi, including tax recovery and filing cases against defaulters.

To facilitate this geotagging initiative, the MCD introduced the MCD App, designed for both residential and non-residential properties. Property owners were instructed to download the app from the Google Play Store or the MCD website.

Geotagging was underscored as a game-changer, providing precise location identification for individual properties. This, in turn, enhances the Municipal Corporation of Delhi’s ability to deliver improved services to citizens based on their geographical locations.

For those eager to geotag their homes, the process was broken down into simple steps:

Open the MCD App and select the citizen option.
Log in to proceed further.
Select the UPIC for the geotagging option using a registered mobile number.
Choose the Property UPIC, go to the Action button, and click ‘Geo-tagging.’ A map location will pop up.
Click on the ‘Capture Geo Coordinates’ button to add photographs of your property.
Click on ‘Add Photos For Property,’ then add a caption for the photos. Proceed to Submit Geotags & Photo and click on the ‘Yes’ button to submit the details.

Property owners without a UPIC number were instructed to first generate one before embarking on the geotagging process.

Stay ahead of the curve and discover the ease and advantages of geotagging your property with the MCD App – because your home deserves to be on the map!

The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) recently conducted surprise inspections at 62 hospitals and nursing homes in Delhi, out of a total of 1,190 facilities in the city. During these raids, they found significant problems in 40 of the hospitals. Shockingly, four of these hospitals didn’t even have the proper licenses to operate.

The inspections carried out on Friday uncovered a range of issues. Two of the unlicensed hospitals were located in Krishna Nagar and Kondli in East Delhi, and the other two were in Rajouri Garden and Deoli in South Delhi.

These surprise raids were triggered by a tragic fire last month at a baby care center in Vivek Vihar, East Delhi, which resulted in the deaths of seven newborns. The fire brought to light serious negligence by the hospital’s management, leading Delhi’s Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena to order a comprehensive review of all hospitals in the city.

In the first phase, the ACB made a list of hospitals to inspect. The current raids are part of the second phase of their investigation. The ACB will now prepare a detailed report based on their findings, and action will be taken against the hospitals and nursing homes that violated regulations.

With over 1,190 hospitals and nursing homes in Delhi, these findings highlight the need for stricter oversight to ensure patient safety. The recent raids serve as a reminder of the importance of maintaining high standards in healthcare, as the ACB continues its efforts to fight corruption and hold healthcare providers accountable.

On Thursday, the Delhi Police reached out to Google to request information regarding the IP address of an email that threatened to bomb North Block in Delhi. The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) office, located in North Block, received the alarming email on Wednesday, causing significant concern. However, after a thorough search, no suspicious items were found, and the threat was determined to be a false alarm, according to official sources.

The Delhi Police Special Cell, alongside local police, is currently investigating the incident. An official indicated that a formal letter has been dispatched to Google, seeking details about the IP address linked to the threatening email sent to the Home Ministry. This email reportedly warned of a bomb placed in the building, which would soon explode.

Further investigation revealed that the email was sent from an anonymous Gmail address, and authorities suspect the sender utilized a VPN to obscure the IP address, complicating efforts to trace its origin. A senior police officer mentioned that a case might be registered at the appropriate police station to facilitate a more detailed investigation.
