The Uttar Pradesh Government has roped in REPL as its knowledge partner for the Rs 600 crore-project christened as—Navyug, which is a Central Government empanelled consultant for giving its expertise to develop smart cities across India.
Notably, the Centre has engaged a few international-level firms to help state governments in creating the Smart Cities in their respective states.
“Smart City policy consists of three components— the first one is developing existing cities into Smart Cities by completely transforming them while the second pertains to using vacant spaces in the existing cities to provide Smart City features to citizens. The last component is about developing new townships as Smart Cities. The Allahabad project falls in the third category,” PN Misra, CMD, New Modern Buildwell said.
Possession of housing and office spaces is likely to be commenced in two and half years. The residential and commercial spaces would be sported with world class amenities for the residents. There would be no municipal hassles, he added.
“The Navyug Smart City would offer uninterrupted electricity, pre-paid meters, world class communication system with optical fibre connection, Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) and provide an unmatched lifestyle to the residents of the city. The sewage system and STP would have sensors to ensure periodic cleaning and alert about any problem developing,” PN Mishra remarked.
