Guwahati, which has found a place in the list of 100 smart cities as envisioned by the Centre, has taken the ‘Smart City’ initiative seriously with Assam’s Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi asking the state’s Urban Development Department to prepare the modalities.

According to sources in the chief minister’s office (CMO) a Smart City is further enhanced by advanced technologies like Information and Communication Technology.

The sources quoted Gogoi as saying, “Guwahati with its well-established rail and road connectivity has the potential to become a Smart City and what is needed is sustainability.”

The Urban Development Department was further instructed by the chief minister 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.

Gogoi asked the department to also prepare similar modalities for Tinsukia, Udalguri, Tangla and Goalpara which also figure in the list, the CMO sources said.
