The construction of illegal buildings on the government property, its encroachments and occupation have been an ever increasing trend in urban areas. The disinclination towards a tamper proof registration system along with the non-Geo referenced land recording system makes the litigation more viable. The ultimate suffers the middle-class people who purchased this plots with their total lifetime earnings, who would later face litigation case against them and lose their properties. The whole process is a loss for the Government in terms of time and money. The remedial measures lie in publishing the vector data of property locations online with open access to the public. The mashup of vector data with the Geo-referenced imageries from the geo-servers can help in identifying the locations and the developments happening. The published information on of Government properties and civic amenity, location, helps in evaluating the property details before purchasing. The details of registration value, available groundwater, along with the scientific information’s of the floodplain, soil strength, earthquake zone, the number permitted floors for construction can be web published. As a result, this would avoid construction violations in such position and risk themselves. The land use policies in the region can reserve the over developments and exhaustion of natural resources. The crowdsourcing information can monitor the violations of policies.
