puducPuducherry’s local administration has installed suggestion boxes at various locations seeking public suggestions for drafting the smart city proposal.

The revised smart city proposal will focus on the concept of retrofitting and redevelopment of the city by addressing urban mobility, tourism, heritage, economy, environment, entertainment, and smart applications.

The two earlier proposals on smart city project submitted by Puducherry were rejected as it focused on greenfield development alone. The local administration is coducting a public survey through road shows and accepting letters from the general public to prepare the new propsal this time.

“The survey results will be collated to frame the goals and objectives for the smart city project. Based on this, the project proposal will be drafted. This will be put out in the public domain by January and the revised proposal will be submitted by March,” a senior official said.

According to R. Chandirasekaran, Commissioner of Puducherry Municipality, a door-to-door survey would be conducted to enable the public to cast their votes for the smart city proposal.

The exercise is being undertaken by a private consultant. As part of the survey, a questionnaire handed over to people would seek to prioritise three from as many as 20 parameters, including healthcare and education, solid waste management, drinking water and sewerage, safety, security and surveillance, complaint redressal, vehicle parking, traffic and transport and e-governance initiatives.
