> Geospatial Strategy for New India, the vision document, prepared under the guidance of the National Think led by former Nasscom chairman Padma Shri Dr. BVR Mohan Reddy and former ISRO chief Kiran Kumar, among other industry leaders,  was released at GeoSmart India, held from December 3 to 5, 2019 at Hyderabad, India.
> The strategy calls for an autonomous agency under the Prime Minister's Office or Niti Aayog for shaping India’s geospatial roadmap. It has also called for an integrated national geospatial strategy to harness the potential of the industry and leverage its power in the national development agenda.
> The report <https://geospatialworld.us6.list-manage.com/track/click?u=729be36461c9bca7afcd6bb23&id=cc8d8bc369&e=32eeb44234> highlights the need and relevance of geospatial knowledge infrastructure, specifically in the context of key sectors like Transport Infrastructure, Land, Agriculture and Rural Development, Water Resources Management, Urban Transformation and Smart Cities, Power, and Disaster Management. It also brings out the challenges that the Indian geospatial industry is facing. The strategy touches upon all relevant aspects of the geospatial ecosystem in the country, including:
> Geospatial infrastructure
> Digital infrastructure
> Integrated GeoHub and knowledge platform
> Governance and institutions
> Data policy
> Legal framework
> Pricing structure
> Capacity and education
> Entrepreneurship and incubation
> The mainstream media too underpinned the need for a national geospatial strategy for growth and development. Here are some highlights:
