Soon, 10 Digit geo-referenced unique property number act as your address
27 March 2017 Current Affairs: By this year-end, your property (in Bangalore) will have a 10-digit unique number.

Existing System:- The PID system includes the ward number, street number and door number of the property, all of which can often change.

Proposed system:- 10-digit unique number, which will be geo-referenced with the latitude and longitude information of the property, can effectively act as your address too.

This number will replace your existing Property Identification (PID) number, which is not geo-referenced.

The 10-digit system will give scope for assigning numbers to 100 lakh properties, a far cry from today’s estimated 25 lakh properties in the 'Bangalore' city.

The 10-digit system will be error-proof and the system would not accept a wrong PID which may lead to tax payment to another account.

Assigning new numbers was recommended by the BBMP (Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike) Restructuring Committee.

Chairman of standing committee on taxation and finance, BBMP - M.K. Gunashekhar

Currently, in Singapore, the geo-referenced unique property number acts as the citizen's address.
