MCD holds training to teach Delhi residents to geotag their homes. Here’s how you can do it.



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!

During a recent cabinet meeting, Prime Minister Narendra Modi advised colleagues to postpone visits to Ayodhya’s Ram Mandir due to the overwhelming number of devotees. Citing concerns about the heavy rush and potential inconvenience caused by VIPs adhering to protocols, the PM suggested Union Ministers plan their Ayodhya visits in March, according to government sources.

Simultaneously, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath directed officials to ensure efficient crowd management for the convenient ‘darshan’ of Ram Lalla. Over five lakh people visited the Ram temple on Tuesday after the ‘Pran Pratishtha’ ceremony. Adityanath urged public cooperation and patience, emphasizing that everyone deserves a darshan of the deity. The newly constructed temple’s doors opened at 6 am.

In response, the Ayodhya district magistrate deployed magistrates at eight locations for crowd control, as per the state government’s statement. Information Director Shishir reported that five lakh devotees had darshan of Ram Lalla, with the last entry at 10 pm.

India secured the fourth spot in global market valuation, outpacing Hong Kong with a market capitalization of $4.3 trillion on January 22, according to Bloomberg. This achievement marks another triumph in India’s ongoing bull rally since hitting a multi-year low in March 2020. Contributing to this surge are global factors, including a shift toward a China-plus supply chain strategy, favoring India as a key alternative manufacturing source.

Internationally, the prolonged post-pandemic slowdown in China, juxtaposed with India’s resilient economic performance, has prompted increased fund allocation to the Indian market by international managers. Domestically, India stands out as one of the world’s fastest-growing major economies, driven by robust tax collections, controlled inflation, strong corporate earnings, and a stable currency.

The stark performance contrast between India and Hong Kong is evident, with India’s benchmark Sensex surging two-and-a-half times since March 2020, while Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index has seen a 33% decline. This exceptional outperformance, coupled with the listing of various companies, has propelled India to surpass Hong Kong in market capitalization.

Suman Bannerjee, CIO at Hedonova, sees India’s rise as a milestone, underscoring the nation’s economic resilience. He emphasizes that this achievement not only signifies numerical triumph but also positions India as a key player in the global financial arena, reflecting the country’s economic fortitude and promising prospects for investors navigating the vibrant Indian stock market landscape.
