As the city failed to get a place in the first list of 20 Smart Cities announced in January 2016, the civic body seems least interested for inclusion in the second round of the competition, local reports say.

It can be gauged from the fact that officials of the municipal corporation (MC) have not held a single meeting to discuss the agenda for preparing the second round for the past two months, The Hindustan Times said.

The MC has not held even a single meeting with the consultants for upgrading the Smart City proposal.

Moreover, its social media campaign has gone off track and the civic body has also not been holding any other activity to promote active participation of citizens.

Jalandhar was at 27th position with a score of 53.8 while Amritsar was at 25th position with a score of 54.55. Only Ludhiana from the state was part of the first list.

The MC is expected to submit the upgraded Smart City proposal in the first week of May.
