The General Body of the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) approved the draft proposal of the ‘Smart City’ project during a special meeting held on Monday, 14th December’15. The proposal, pegged at Rs 2,900 crore, has envisaged projects in various sectors.

The General Body’s approval came after a marathon discussion among the elected representatives lasting for over 10 hours. Pune is among the 98 cities across India shortlisted by the Union Government for its ambitious Smart City project; under which it will provide funds for developmental works in various sectors.

As the Centre will initially implement the project in 10 cities, Pune is vying for the top position. The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has taken a tremendous initiative to prepare the draft proposal of the scheme, which has to be submitted to the Union Government by December’15.

After a lot of discussion, Mr. Dattatraya Dhankawade, Mayor instructed Mr. Kunal Kumar, Municipal Commissioner to make a presentation of the proposal prepared by PMC. Mr. Kumar gave a detailed presentation of the draft for Smart City and requested all the parties to support it. Over 40 elected members spoke on the proposal. The Municipal Commissioner said that, “Pune had taken the lead in the Smart City scheme and other cities are following it. If the General Body gives its nod, it will help Pune to get selected in the first phase. In fact, Pune stands a bright chance to be number one in the Smart City project,” he said.
