The information technology industry is pinning its hopes on the Smart City project to address its demand to improve infrastructure facilities in the capital. “Most challenges with regard to infrastructure that the IT industry is facing are similar to those faced by the city as a whole,” Group of Technology Companies (GTech) chairman K. Nandakumar said in a statement. “The transition to a smart city will go a long way in addressing these challenges."
He said that robust systems in multi-layer transit, traffic control, waste management and water resources would enable Thiruvananthapuram as a sought after IT destination. Thus Smart City project and Technopark can complement each other. GTech secretary Mr. P. Vijay Kumar said that several IT companies in Technopark had experience in enabling smart cities around the world. They can play a positive role in the smart city project for the capital, too, he said.
