politics-sequal-Amit_MitraThe Commerce, Industries and Finance Minister of West Bengal, Amit Mitra, at the annual general meeting of The Bengal Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said, “Investments could be made across the six ‘smart-themed’ cities that the State Government was planning.

He further said, “The six ‘smart-themed’ cities include one on sports at Howrah, a senior citizen’s city at Baruipur, a city for health and education in Siliguri, an industrial city in Assansol, a city for art and culture at Bolpur and an analytics city at Kalyani.”

At the minimum, 25 per cent of the space in these cities would be reserved for the theme, whereas commercial expansion could be carried out in the remaining areas.

As per him, firms such as HP, E&Y, Cisco, etc,. have shown interest in participating in the development of these ‘themed cities’ and in e-learning, e-health, telemedicine and so on.

There are six ‘smart-themed’ cities we are planning to set up in the days to come. I urge the Bengal Chamber to explore the possibility of collaboration with some of these companies, he said.

That apart, The Bengal Chamber has taken up the development of the analytics city at Kalyani.
