Survey of India strives to keep India among the best surveyed countries in the World
Union Minister of Communications, Manoj Sinha said that Survey of India has met the challenges of surveying the indomitable Himalaya, blazing deserts and animal infested jungles. The Department is continuously striving to keep abreast of modern technology and has successfully entered the era of Digital Mapping and Geographic Information Systems. Mr Sinha was speaking here after releasing a set of two commemorative postage stamps and a miniature sheet on “Survey of India” on the occasion of its 250th anniversary. The minister said that the Survey of India, fondly called ‘the Department’ by its members is built on solid foundations, strong traditions and deep roots, keeps striving to keep India among the best surveyed countries in the world, adopting the latest technologies to meet new challenges and always living up to its motto: A Setu Himachalam i.e. ‘From Setu to the Himalaya’ (covering entire India).
