Aurangabad is expecting a fund of Rs 90 crore from the state government to develop state-of-the-art civic amenities under the smart city project. The central government has already allotted the fund to the state government which will be soon diverted towards the Aurangabad Municipal Corporation (AMC).
Om Prakash Bakoria, municipal commissioner said that the civic body would get funds for initiating various projects planned under the project.
Elaborating, Sikander Ali, executive engineer in the civic body and in-charge of the project said that the AMC would receive the funds within three to four days.
“The funding will be disbursed in five phases. Every year the civic body will get the funds and right now we believe the funds for the first phase will be released very soon,” he added.
The AMC will soon appoint a project management consultancy firm to prepare detailed reports for the public transport system, green field development and improvement of solid waste management system among other schemes. “Responding to the bid calls of the civic body, three reputed firms have applied for the consultancy management job. We will open the bids on Friday and hope to appoint a company, which will immediately start preparing detailed project reports for various schemes,” Ali said.
