Marking one year of announcement of Smart Cities Mission by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, GVMC will launch a few projects on June 25.

Besides, the city will also set up a construction and debris waste processing plant.

Announcing this at a press conference on Wednesday, Municipal Commissioner Pravin Kumar said Command and Control Centre, a major, pan city, project costing Rs.141 crore, would be one of the projects. It would bring all departments of GVMC together and later other government departments like Revenue and Pollution Control Board and disaster management sending alerts in times of cyclones. It would monitor pollution levels and analyse them. The traffic monitoring system launched by the Police Department and GVMC would be brought under it. All e-governance systems would be integrated.

The Commissioner said the Project Management Consultants would give a final shape to it.

The Centre would come up on GVMC premises.

Housing for all, ICT-based solid waste management, smart metering, solar roof-top power on government buildings and solar panels for street-lighting, 100 per cent house service connections for water supply under AMRUT would be among the eight to nine projects to be launched on the day.
