The smart city project has sufficient funds but due to various technical reasons, including the delay in the land transfer of the Defense Department, some of the work is not being carried out. The Minister of State for Railways Suresh Angadi has instructed the officials to immediately resolve all technical issues including land acquisition and land transfer.
He was speaking at a meeting held on Monday (July 27) at the DC office in connection with smart city works under the chairmanship of the district in-charge minister.
He said that if some private property is part of any works the value must be assessed and resettlement or relocation plan must be made as per law.
With the rapid growth of the city, the focus must be on the next thirty years and should be on providing infrastructural facilities Minister Angadi said.
