After failing to secure its place in the first phase Smart City project, Arunachal Pradesh’s Pasighat local bodies are gearing up for the second phase under the guidance of the newly joined Municipal Executive Officer (MEO) Rahul Singh.
Of the cut-off mark set by the Union Urban Ministry at 54, Pasighat missed the chance with 52.5 marks in the first list.
However, the centurion town has been provided a second chance as it is nominated as one of the 23 Fast Track cities on the basis of the Smart City Proposal under the Smart City Mission.
Singh informed the consultants that as per the feedback of the panel of experts, the upgraded proposal should incorporate a thorough SWOT (Strength Weakness Opportunity Threat) analysis.
Besides, the “Weakness and Threat” are to be identified, prioritized and plans to be devised to overcome in consultation with its citizens and other stakeholders.
Singh has appealed for active participation in the upcoming venture, sharing valuable suggestions through mygov.in portal, citizen awareness campaigns, radio talks and various competitions etc to acquire better marks in the 2nd phase.
