Smart Air Quality Monitoring

The upgraded smart city proposal of New Town was scrutinized and recommended for submission to MoUD for consideration under Fast Track Smart City approval today by a Committee headed by the Chief Secretary. In course of the discussions it was highlighted that Sustainable Environment would be one of the objectives of the plan and that components such as Solar Power, LED light and Air Quality Monitoring would be included.  In fact, an analysis of the citizen feedback indicates that for 5% of the residents, air quality is an issue. Consequently, sensor based air quality monitoring units would be installed throughout New Town. In addition, proper treatment of Construction and Demolition waste would also be ensured through policy prescriptions. A Rs 50,000 fine has already proposed for inclusion in the rules for certain cases of C&D waste issues.
