All civic services to go online; tenders invited for the project
For the convenience of residents, e-governance will be introduced in the city, making all civic services such as fire NOC, booking of community halls, birth and death certificate and building plan approval available online.
This was informed at a meeting chaired by Punjab Governor and UT Administrator VP Singh Badnore.
The meeting was called to review the works under the Smart City Mission.
UT Adviser Manoj Kumar Parida and Municipal Commissioner KK Yadav were also present in the meeting.
The Municipal Commissioner said tenders for the project had been invited and bids would be received till February 11.
Moreover, an MoU has been signed with Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) for setting up an integrated command and control centre (ICCC) in the city, which will help in surveillance through fixed/PTZ cameras and intelligent traffic management system, along with an adaptive traffic control system.
The Municipal Commissioner said sensors would also be installed at 10 locations to indicate the quality of air in the city. Dynamic-message signs will be installed at 40 locations to inform the public about any new development in the city as well as to guide them about the route on which they are travelling. All important places like markets, public parks, schools, colleges and community centres will have CCTV cameras.
The project will cost Rs184 crore and services like smart lighting, parking and bike sharing etc. will be connected with the command centre for information about the real-time status.
Similarly, a Rs 550-crore project for the round-the-clock supply of water across the city is also being considered, for which a loan will be sought from the AFD (French Development Agency).
The bike-sharing scheme will be implemented for the entire city and for this purpose, 617 bicycles docking stations have been identified with a total of 5,000 cycles being put into service in the first phase. The scheme will be in place within 12 months. The project will be executed on the PPP mode at Rs 20 crore. The operator will be responsible for the operation and maintenance for a period of 11 years.
