Centre gets 85 smart city proposals
Telangana seeks to replace Hyderabad with Karimnagar

New Delhi, Dec 15 T:

The Ministry of Urban Development on Tuesday said that it has received 85 out of 98 smart city proposals, almost meeting its target of getting 86 proposals, as Tamil Nadu has sought more time to submit 12 proposals on account of floods.

“While 17 proposals were submitted yesterday, 68 proposals were received in the Ministry on Tuesday, the last day for submission,” an official statement said, adding that “Telangana Government has sought to replace Hyderabad in the smart city mission by another city, to be communicated later”.

A senior official in the Ministry told BusinessLine that Telangana wants to now nominate Karimnagar in the second round of the challenge as the State feels that Hyderabad already has good infrastructure.

“It is expected that total investment proposed by the 85 cities which have submitted proposals would be about Rs. 2.50 lakh crore,” the statement added.
