noidaIn recent news by ToI, Noida Authority is going to map individual houses of 81 villages in its administrative boundary. Bishanpura village is the first of 81 villages to be mapped, and taken as a pilot project.  Village Bishanpura is located in Noida’s Sector-58 and has a population of around 3,000.
