Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi asked the state's Urban Development Department to prepare the modalities of 'Smart City' as Guwahati has found a place in the list of 100 such cities envisioned by the Centre. A 'Smart' city's urban competitiveness was enhanced by advanced technologies including Information and Communication Technology and other means, sources in the Chief Minister's office (CMO) said.

"Guwahati with its well-established rail and road connectivity has the potential to become a Smart City and what is needed is sustainability," the sources quoted Gogoi as saying. The chief minister also asked the urban development department to study the features of satellite towns that include mobility and traffic conditions, street-lighting, water supply, sewage networks, security-related aspects, amenities and other physical and social infrastructure.

Gogoi asked the department to also prepare similar modalities for Tinsukia, Udalguri, Tangla and Goalpara which also figure in the list, the Office said.
