On 9th August, Tuesday last, I attended a seminar by Observer Research Foundation (ORF), located in New Town (Pics above). Topic was Smart Cities. Director Mr Asok Dhar mentioned that ORF follows Chattam House Rules (See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chatham_House_Rule ) and so one can speak without being attributed. I mentioned, in my presentation, how West Bengal is doing a universal Green City Mission with ALL towns (and so not only 4 of the state) and without an Area Based Development approach to avoid selection bias.
