The National Remote Sensing Agency is of great importance and the state governments have to get advice in all matters for digitalising revenue records, the Court directed.
Geo fencing is another landmark achievement by which digital fencing can be implemented. That can effectively safeguard the areas.
Forest encroachments are done in many states with the connivance of political parties. That can be monitored by geo fencing.
