Guwahati in smart city list!

Good news for Guwahatians. Despite unending problems confronting Guwahati for the last couple of years, the premier north eastern city is going to a smart one if    Tarun Gogoi is to be believed.

The chief minister on Saturday asked his Urban development department to prepare the modalities of 'Smart City' as Guwahati has found a place in the list of 100 such cities envisioned by the Centre.

Chief minister’s office sources told Assam Times that a 'Smart' city's urban competitiveness was enhanced by advanced technologies including Information and Communication Technology and other means.

Gogoi further asked the urban development department to study the features of satellite towns that include mobility and traffic conditions, street-lighting, water supply, sewage networks, security-related aspects, amenities and other physical and social infrastructure.
