Having missed the first list of Smart Cities Mission (SCM), Nagaland government is now gearing up to include the capital city in the mission from amongst a list of 23 Fast Track Cities.
“Since we were unable to achieve the cut-off 50 marks for the first phase of the mission, Kohima has been given a second chance by the Union Urban Development Ministry by putting it amongst the 23 Fast Track Cities, out of which around 15 would be selected for developing into Smart Cities,” Parliamentary Secretary R Tohanba said here today.
Kohima Municipal Council (KMC), in consultation with stake holders of the capital city and Gurgaon-based Voyants Solutions Pvt Ltd, has prepared a fresh Detailed Project Report to be submitted to the Centre on April 10, he said.
“We intend to transform Kohima into a Smart City by providing basic requirements of the denizens such as proper electricity, water supply, information technology, better traffic management, security and improved road conditions,” Tohanba said.
The second Smart City list will be declared on April 15, he added.Share This
