108 Days ago

New Delhi, March 14 (IANS) The National Remote Sensing Centre of ISRO has signed an agreement with the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) for preparing satellite-based maps to help check unauthorised construction around over 3,000 protected monuments, the government said on Monday.

Culture and Tourism Minister Mahesh Sharma said this on Monday while replying to a question in the Lok Sabha.

The maps will indicate prohibited and regulated areas around protected monuments for the information of the public.

"The ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation) has a repository of photographs that are taken routinely through satellite. Those photographs will be used for developing a surveillance system for the centrally protected monuments," Sharma said. (IANS)
