The city Corporation’s draft Smart City proposal with projects worth Rs.1,505 crore will come up for the council’s approval on Friday.
The proposal prepared by Bengaluru-based consultancy Infrastructure Development Corporation (Karnataka) Limited (iDeCK) tries to strike a balance between modernising the city’s infrastructure while preserving its heritage structures.
The proposals come under two broad heads — Area-based development and Pan city development — with projects under the former getting a bulk of the funds. Some of the major projects under Pan city include smart street lighting and smart water supply.
Information Technology-based solutions are being planned for waste management and monitoring of waste treatment at source. The proposal also puts forward the idea of at least one smart bus stand for each ward.
