NESAC has successfully developed the Tripura Banadhikar App as per the request of Directorate of Land Records and Settlements, Government of Tripura for demarcation of Forest Pattas lands. The Government of Tripura was highly appreciated for initiating such an important activity with the support of NESAC towards demarcation of forest patta lands using Mobile App integrated with GAGAN/NaVIC technology. The app is also expected to help in monitoring the movements and changes within the forest land allocated to the beneficiaries. The Tripura Banadhikar App can also be used in offline mode (where there is no internet connectivity), it allows users to carry out the land survey with higher positional accuracy, real-time mapping with area measurement and map visualization on top of high resolution satellite imageries. The App was developed at NESAC using open source software and standards.
