India: As the Indian economy moves towards strengthening these initiatives, geospatial technology will gain more prominence in the process.

GIS and other geospatial technologies will facilitate efficient implementation of Government schemes.

With the launch of Jal Jeevan Mission (Urban), the government is aiming at a universal water supply in all 4,378 Urban Local Bodies with 2.86 crores household tap connections, as well as liquid waste management in 500 AMRUT cities.
