One of the most popular tourist spots in the West Bengal capital, Eco Park is planning to introduce more IT and IT-enabled applications. The new initiatives have been introduced by the The New Town Kolkata Development Authority.
The authorities have developed multiple windowed glass, camera-display TV ticket counters that issue plastic radio frequency identification (RFID) enabled cards to provide better experience to the visitors.
Under the plan, facilities like digital wallets, automatic entry cards and more automatic car parkings, water ATMs and a public address system will be made available at the Eco Park.
“The popularity of Eco Park is increasing each year. For example, there was a 23.89 per cent increase in footfall at Eco Park during ‘Durga Puja’ this year compared to last year,” an official said.
The New Town Kolkata has been selected to be a smart city under the government of India’s smart city mission this year.
