Big Boom!! Visakhapatnam Smart City goes digital

There is no stopping Visakhapatnam Smart City from upping the ante each and every given time. This time it is the digital drive.

Civic utilities which are both a boon and bane in the city will now be the focus of continuous monitoring and supervision. In this regard, Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation (GVMC) is using digital capacities to cut no slack in the civic facilities in a smart city. There is a major digital up-gradation in their online profile and real time inputs and status of civil facilities will be fed into their Command and Control Center. We are looking at better accountability, transparency and efficiency. The handle which was launched by CM Chandrababu Naidu will now bear fruit.

One can now access the information required by going through the website or the app that GVMC has provided. Use of a smartphone is all one needs. This is a major digital boost and one that will have far reaching effects on the realization of Visakhapatnam Smart City project. All fields of public interest are included i.e water and power supply, beach surveillance, traffic management, pollution levels, weather and temperature etc.


#1 175 cores will be invested on the Command and Control Center.

#2 Greater Visakha Smart City Corporation Limited has already invited bidders for the same.

#3 500 CCTVs at 80 major junctions.

#4 50 traffic signals to give live info on traffic and the regulatory dimension.

#5 A disaster management handle.

#6 A timeline of 5 years for completion of the major smart city projects, as reported by Deccan Chronicle, quoting GVMC Commisioner M.Hari Narayana.

This is real and very much happening. Cheers to Visakhapatnam city reaching the pinnacle of development soon.
