Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) launched a digital door numbering system through geospatial technology on a guide base in three wards.  This digital door numbering system will help to generate a uniform address system for all the urban dwellings.

As per the reports with this new digital door numbering system, each house will be given an alphanumeric code as the first-hand identification number comprising information on the exact location of the property with coded details of its address, nearby landmark, sub-road and main road.
