KOHIMA, April 1 - 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 stakeholders 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. � PTI
