Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi today launched Integrated Command and Control Centre for Itanagar and Pasighat Smart City through Digital Platform (Remote Control) from New Delhi.

The historic moment was witnessed by the State’s Dy. Chief Minister Chowna Mein, DC Dr. Kinny Singh, DIGP Isaac Pertin, local MLA Kaling Moyong, SP Prashant Gautam, Director Town Planning & ULB cum CEO Pasighat Smart City and others through video conference here at the DC’s office conference hall.

In his brief speech, Dy CM Mein said our state is getting affected by the rapid urbanisation and the challenges posing a serious threat to the larger public. To address the problems before they become too large, Itanagar and Pasighat from our state were selected to get transformed into smart cities with citizen-centric services where the focus is on sustainable and inclusive development, Mein added.

These cities will be developed to have basic infrastructure such as assured water and power supply, sanitation and solid waste management, efficient urban mobility and public transport, IT connectivity, e-governance and citizen participation to ensure right impetus to strengthen the economic activities in state in particular and the country as a whole.

Our objective is to overhaul the entire demography of these two cities and to replenish the ecosystem with the best-fit technology, globally benchmarked public services and the good governance besides preserving our traditional architecture and ethnicity while making the cities safe, livable and energy & solution efficient, Mein stated.

According to Dy CM Mein, the most vital component will be a cloud-based smart city platform that will integrate all smart solutions and help the administrators to remotely manage, optimize and monitor the complete infrastructure and urban services. The platform will be displayed in an integrated Command and Control Centre that will display information in a manner that gives the administrators the highest-level of situational awareness – in order to dispatch instructions or to report to higher levels.

Earlier, the Deputy Commissioner Dr. K. Singh in her deliberation said that Arunachal Pradesh is known for its architectural beauty and vibrant culture, our state is moving towards syncing its historic magnificence with modernity, with this step of transforming our cities into Smart Cities.

While deploying these solutions, our focus is also on reducing the pollution by the deployment of environment sensors, which will help administrators to monitor the environmental conditions including temperature, noise, and air quality parameters on frequent basis.

Local MLA Kaling Moyong extended his gratitude to the PM Modi adding that he believes that the mission will really curb the challenges that we are currently facing due to increasing urbanization. He asserted that smart city will help us to improve the operational effectiveness, cost-efficiency and thereby, improve overall citizen quality of life including environment.
