Smart City project management consultant get approved in Kochi
The director board meeting of Cochin Smart Mission Ltd (CSML) has given its nod for appointing project management consultant (PMC) for projects under Smart City.
The projects conceived under Smart City have been remaining non-starters at least for the past eight months due to the absence of consultant who are to prepare the detailed project report (DPR). The Smart City authorities would enter into an agreement with the PMC soon.
“We have already given Letter of Award to the PMC. We will have to sign an agreement with them. They are expected to evaluate the component projects conceived under the Smart City,” said A P M Mohammed Hanish, managing director, CSML.
“They will prepare the DPRs of the component projects. However, we will be able to start some of the component projects which already have DPRs. The projects like Water Metro implemented by Kochi Metro Rail Ltd (KMRL), diversification of Kochi One Card and KWA’s 24×7 uninterrupted water supply project can be started soon,” he added.
