Two-day state consultation to finalise Smart City launch

To take states and other stakeholders on board for the ambitious initiative to build smart cities, Urban Development Ministry is holding a two-day conclave that will delve into issues like innovative policy and financing tools needed for the programme.

The two-day ‘Consultation Workshop with state governments and stakeholders on smart Cities’ will begin here tomorrow and take up 10 critical issues with the states for a clear understanding on them, challenges and the road ahead, a senior Urban Development Ministry official said.

The issues include competition based selection of cities for inclusion under smart cities programme; support and hand-holding the cities need to participate in the Smart City challenge; policy issues in respect of area based strategy for development through retrofitting, redevelopment and green field smart city development.
