CM’s Fadnavis's town tops Smart Cities survey

MUMBAI: Seven of the 10 Maharashtra cities decided on for the Narendra Modi government’s Smart Cities Mission have were given their infrastructure projects off the bottom.

In the latest file card at the project, whilst Nagpur ranks first for velocity of implementation, Thane is a distant 59, with the others in between. Pune has made really extensive development and is now ranked eighth nationally.

The scores, on the subject of work initiated, have been launched via the Union ministry for urban affairs on Thursday.

Being chief minister Devendra Fadnavis’s homeland, Nagpur enjoys an edge over the other cities. There was once no dearth of funds for the town’s two proposals: Rs 524 crore was once given for putting in a CCTV network and Rs 3,303 crore for Smart City space construction for an area of one,743 acres in east Nagpur.

Kalyan-Dombivli has drawn up plans for 28 civic projects however up to now, work has started only on a Rs 65-crore park. Under the project, the town has received Rs 360 of the sanctioned Rs 1,445 crore. The other projects include a creek waterfront, Kalyan railway station modernisation, set up of contemporary site visitors signals and CCTV

Thane has several projects, together with the Thane east station space site visitors growth gadget, a new railway station between Thane and Mulund, and water supply and sewage upgrade.

Activists complained that projects are being accomplished without right kind making plans.

“Projects like the alternative railway station are being accomplished even if land required for the venture is yet to be handed over to the corporation. The waterfront venture is any other such example,” complained an activist.

Pune has up to now accomplished 9 projects. Of the Rs 490 crore received, town authorities have spent Rs 140 crore. Work orders for 17 projects have been issued whilst tenders for any other 38 projects are being processed, mentioned officers.
