India : You get a Smart City only when Urban Amenities reach up to the last Citizen, says C.M. Fadnavis

Nagpur: (NMC) in association with Elets Technomedia had organized a Smart City summit on April 7 and 8 in Hotel Le Meridian in Nagpur.

The C.M. was addressing the valedictory session here today in the presence of other dignitaries like union Minister Nitin Gadkari, Divn. Commissioner Shravan Hardikar, P.C. K. Venkatesham, Mayor Nanda Jichkar, Director of Uber India Shweta Rajpal Kohli, Arun Lakhani of Vishwaraj Infrastructure, Sanjay Ubale of Tata Realties and CEO of Eletes Dr. Ravi Gupta.

Fadnavis said that NMC and State Govt. is bringing many projects to make Nagpur a Smart City but unless the benefits are reaped by every citizen of the city, their objective will not be realized.

He also rued the fact that only a small minority of the population pays city taxes which make such amenities possible.

He expressed confidence that once Nagpurians understand that the measures undertaken are to make life better for everyone, they will come forward and voluntarily be a part of the process. They will contribute to the financial burden by paying taxes too!
