Guwahati Development Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma told the Assam Assembly that a total of 13 schemes and infrastructure development projects are being carried out to transform the state capital into a Smart City.
Sarma said the sanctioned cost for completing 12 projects is Rs 2,303.50 crore, while no amount has been fixed yet for the City Operation Centre.
Out of this, Rs 2.58 crore has been earmarked for implementing the high-mast national flag construction project in Guwahati.
"The work has been allotted after completing the tender process," he said, without giving any further detail.
The highest amount of Rs 826 crore will be spent for the overall development of Brahmaputra riverside along the city, and the Detailed Project Report (DPR) is being prepared for it, the minister said.
DPR is also being prepared for another Rs 250-crore project to conserve the Deepor Beel lake in the city, while tender has been floated for interested parties to carry out development works worth Rs 212 crore at the Borsola Beel lake, Sarma added.
