ChandigarhThe Chandigarh Municipal Corporation has invited suggestions from city residents in order to strengthen the city’s chances to enter the next phase of the Smart City Challenge.

For sharing ideas, the citizens will have to visit and go through ‘Chandigarh Smart City Proposal’ in detail, which includes observations of the expert panel, and submit suggestions by March 18, 2016,” said Purushartha.

The final proposal will be submitted to the MoUD by April 15, 2016.
