I'd received some emails from residents of Salt Lake that broadband services through fixed line telephones were being delayed in some quarters. I held a meeting today with service providers (Airtel, Aircel, TTCL, TTS, Vodafone, Reliance, BSNL, Ortel and Manthan ) and NTTIDCO. I had a good insight into the problems faced by the service providers. I appealed to them to adopt the Singapore Model (Infrastructure should precede development) rather than the Gurgaon Model (islands of gated developments without basic infrastructure outside). I also sought proposals for innovative solutions to make New Town a futuristic smart city and explained that we were looking for (i) linked traffic signals (ii) thana linked burglar alarms and (iii) closed circuit TVs at strategic junctions.
Later, I had a separate discussion over a cup of coffee with CGM BSNL and Chairman NTTIDCO at my office room. Here is a picture of the main meeting today:
