CEO SSCL says Sgr records highest number of completions of works, 50 out of 70 projects to be completed before Dec, 2023

SRINAGAR: Srinagar Smart City has recorded highest-ever completion of projects amongst all the smart cities across the country with the CEO Srinagar Smart City Limited (SSCL), Athar Aamir Khan saying that 55 projects have been completed so far while work on 70 projects are going on.

CEO, SSCL said that a total of 125 projects are to be executed under the smart city project. He said that 55 among them have been completed while the work on 70 others are going on, adding that 50 among them will be completed before December this year.

Khan further said that the rest of 20 projects will be completed by June 2024.

“So far, Srinagar has witnessed the fastest execution of the smart city projects and the highest number of projects has been completed compared to other cities across the country,” he said.

“After the conclusion of the G-20 event in Srinagar, the execution of works will gain even more pace,” he said.

Under the much-hyped smart city project, several projects like J&K’s first wire-free and exclusively pedestrian market—Polo View and Jhelum Riverfront have been completed recently.

Both the projects were inaugurated by Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha ahead of the G-20 event. The delegates of the G-20 event also visited the refurbished Polo View market where they spent over half an hour on Wednesday.

Smart City Mission was launched by the Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD) Gol in which 100 cities were to be selected for Urban renewal and retrofitting with the objective to promote cities that provide core infrastructure, give a decent quality of life to their citizens and apply smart solutions to improve services and infrastructure.
