During a routine Municipal Corporation meeting on Thursday, January 4,2024, District Collector Arvind Poswal raised inquiries regarding the progress of the Smart City project. Subsequently, on Friday, January 5,2024, he personally conducted an inspection of the city's internal areas. Walking through narrow lanes, the collector meticulously examined the integrated activities associated with the Smart City project. Taking a hands-on approach, District Collector Arvind Kumar Poswal went to the extent of having sewer chambers opened for a close inspection.
During this period, certain areas raised concerns due to problematic situations. Recognizing the issue, the collector actively sought a solution and directed the Smart City's responsible individuals to install sensors in these chambers.
The benefit of this initiative lies in its real-time functionality
Once the sewage reaches the predefined line, the sensor will promptly alert the Smart City's control room. Furthermore, an automated message signaling a full chamber will be dispatched to the respective officer's mobile phone. Implementation of this technology holds significant promise for addressing the persistent problem of sewage overflow on the streets. Such proactive measures can contribute substantially to the effective management of urban sanitation issues.
On the flip side, Arpana Gupta, the CEO of Smart City Limited, revealed that Surajpol used to house a police station in its initial days. The condition here was initially in decline. As part of the Smart City's heritage initiative, restoration and beautification efforts have been successfully implemented.
Following his visit to Hathi Pol, the Collector directly inspected the ongoing work in the Ayad River. He looked into various activities, including channel work, stone lining, protection walls and retaining walls, offering directions for necessary improvements. Additionally, he observed the progress of the work in the riverbed.
It is noteworthy that development projects totaling Rs 75 crores have been approved for a 5-kilometer stretch along the Ayad River. The allocated budget comprises Rs 35 crores from Udaipur Smart City, Rs 35 crores from the Urban Development Authority (UDA) and Rs 5 crores from the Municipal Corporation.
