BDA's app Drushti goes defunct

The Bangalore Development Authority's (BDA) web-based application Drushti, which gives an insight into the Comprehensive Development Plan, has not been functioning for the past one week.

Sources at the BDA said that the application, Drushti, was being managed by the Sky Group for the past two years on a pro bono basis, but due to a financial crunch and lack of support, managing it had become an uphill task.

The portal was important for  the City planners as well as other citizens, as it would superimpose the entire city with the survey numbers, names of villages and hoblis on Google Earth. This would help people identify the location.

Chaitanya, a user of this application said, “This had been quite helpful in identifying places as it superimposes village maps with survey numbers on Google Earth. I have got some vital information from this application. It is unfortunate that it has crashed. The BDA should upgrade it and see to it that it is functional.”

A BDA officer dealing with town planning said he was not aware that the application had crashed. He said he would look into the matter.

Last year, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah had officially inaugurated the portal, when he was visiting the BDA head office to draw the lottery of BDA's flat allottees.
