To help investors get real-time information about the availability of industrial land and resources, the Government of India has launched the National GIS-enabled Land Bank system, initially for six states. E-launching the system, commerce and industry minister Piyush Goyal expressed confidence that other states/UTs will also be onboarded by December 2020.

The land bank system is being developed by integration of Industrial Information System (IIS) with state GIS Systems.

IIS portal is a GIS-enabled database of industrial areas/clusters across the states. More than 3,300 industrial parks across 31 states/UTs covering about 475,000 hectare land have been mapped on the system. Information available includes forest, drainage; raw material heat maps (agricultural, horticulture, mineral layers); multiple layers of connectivity.

The IIS adopts a committed approach towards resource optimisation, industrial upgradation and sustainability. The initiative is being supported by Invest India, National Center of Geo-Informatics (NCoG), National e-Governance Division (NeGD), Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology and Bhaskaracharya Institute for Space Applications and Geo-Informatics (BISAG).

At present, the National GIS-enabled Land Bank "is a prototype only and will be developed further with inputs from states, to make it an effective, transparent mechanism of land identification and procurement," Goyal said during the launch.
