Amitabh Kant – CEO, NITI Aayog:
India’s geospatial sector has been largely neglected and devoid of any policy reforms for a long period of time.
The Govt has brought in transformational policy changes for geo spatial data & maps
New guidelines will serve as a foundation for a new geospatial revolution in India.
New geospatial guidelines will benefit all flagship programmes – Smart Cities, Digital India, Start‐up India, Make in India & smart agriculture – all have substantial geospatial components.
Self-certification would contribute to a vibrant & globally competitive ecosystem in India
