UT forms 5-member smart city technical committee

CHANDIGARH: To accelerate pending initiatives underneath the smart town challenge, the UT management has formed a five-member technical committee. The panel will include chief engineers from Chandigarh management, municipal company and Chandigarh Housing Board; smart town normal manager and UT chief architect. The committee will oversee the key initiatives and will then draft a technical proposal. The initiatives will likely be taken up only after the committee's approval.

The management will quickly get started initiatives like 24X7 water supply in Manimajra, bicycle sharing device, upgradation of sewage remedy crops, integrated command and regulate centre and mining of dumping ground.

Recently, the Centre had even sought record on the fund applied in the final two years via the UT management for the smart town. The Centre had released Rs 300 crore finances for the challenge, then again, the management in the final two years has only spent Rs 20 crores.

A couple of months in the past, the board of administrators of Chandigarh Smart City Limited (CSCL) had licensed a detailed project experiences of 24X7 water supply in Manimajra and bicycle sharing device. Similarly, two different initiatives - integrated command regulate centre and upgradation of five sewage remedy crops - had been licensed on September 26.

Chandigarh used to be declared a smart town in May 2016. The smart towns challenge objectives at selling smart answers for efficient use of available assets, sources and infrastructure. The Centre has earmarked Rs 48,000 crore for development of 100 smart towns.
