Gandhinagar in whicn State

GANDHINAGER: It’s commonplace to find visitors in Gandhinagar who are lost because they were unable to trace the address of a house or a government office. To make it easier for newcomers to locate the houses they are looking for, the Gandhinagar Municipal Corporation (GMC) plans to implement a new system, called ‘house verification system’. This system has already been implemented in Chandigarh, sources in GMC said.

Under the new scheme, each house will be given an address plate with a code and name of the owner. The code, when entered in the computerised system, will reveal the names of the owner of theproperty and his family members. The code will serve as a kind of ‘ready reckoner’ for those who are new in the city and are trying to find a particular house of building.

“The database will be used with a special base map of the city which will help visitors navigate to the desired location. The name of the occupants of the house will also be put up on the information network. But there are privacy issues too that will be associated with the system,” said a senior official of the urban development department.

The standing committee of the GMC will pass the proposal in the forthcoming meeting of the standing committee. “The GMC will prepare the special boards for residents. We will include both government and private houses in the verification system. Villages recently included in the city will also be considered for inclusion in the system,” the official said.

The officer further said that the city shares many similarities with Chandigarh. Roads in Gandhinagar do not run parallel to its boundaries but are all positioned at an angle to protect motorists from the direct afternoon sun. Each sector in Gandhinagar is 185 square acres in size, less than the 250 square acres of sectors in Chandigarh. Up to the mid-1980s, most houses in each sector had a common colour strip on their terraces that was identified as belonging to their respective sector.

Each sector has self-contained a neighbourhood with a shopping strip, community centre, garden, clinic, school and so on. Pedestrians here do not cross roads to reach neighbourhood community centres. Each sector is designed in such a manner that a bicyclist can traverse a neighbourhood easily.
