Buyers have been in a tizzy over whether the property in which they are investing their life’s savings is illegal or not.
‘Zippserv Protect’ comes to their rescue as it allows users to see revenue maps and check if their property encroaches a rajakaluve, a lake or its buffer zones.
The Google map-based tool developed by Bengaluru-based startup Zippserv, uses information from BBMP revenue maps and covers 800 sqkm of the city. The map shows lakes, tanks, ponds, stormwater drains, rivers, roads and survey boundaries which lie within a 500-metre radius of the selected location. A ruler tool allows users to measure the distance from the property to any point to check if they are at a safe distance from SWDs and lakes.
The tool was initially developed to be used by customers of Zippserv which provides comprehensive risk assessment on real estate investments. The tool will now be available on their website for free.
“These maps are available on the Revenue Department website but specific details about village and hobli are a must. Zippserv Protect simplifies information and makes it more accessible,” Zippserv CEO and co-founder Sudeep Anandapuram said.
The team plans to add information on unrecognised layouts, land acquisitions for peripheral ring roads, litigations and other city-planning parameters.
