Smart Workshops and Visit of Hon'ble CM to New Town

In the morning, I attended the Smart City seminar by Governance Today at Park Hotel. The theme was "Smart City: Smarter West Bengal: An awaiting door for moving towards smart West Bengal". The seminar was organised in association with Urban Development Department but without any financial involvement of he State Government. Among others, I met Uber management and fixed up a meeting at Hidco tomorrow:
