Goan IT Professionals (GITP), an IT advocacy group, has come up with several suggestions to transform Panaji and other Goa towns into smart urban places where the main focus of development will be on public transport and the use of technology.

In a bid to decongest cities and towns, GITP has suggested restriction on city entry for personal vehicles with odd-registration numbers on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and even-numbered vehicles on other days Tuesday. If vehicle owners want exception to this rule, a tag will be fixed on windshields at a price of 1,000 per year. It wants to encourage use of cycles to decongest cities and towns.

The group has recommended that contracts to build and maintain roads should be awarded only to companies that meet international standards and adhere to defined guarantees of at least 20 years.

GITP has said the City of Panaji should offer incentives for smart and efficient lighting such as 10 per cent tax waiver on residential and commercial establishment that deploy solar panels.
