Udupi: Three prominent places in Udupi district- the fast-growing tourist destination of Udupi town, education hub Manipal and the scenic port of Malpe – are to be shortlisted for development under the Smart Cities Mission.
The development work will be conducted under the PPP model. A Bengaluru-based firm has been contracted which has prepared a blueprint and is working on the Detailed Project Report.
“The plan to make Manipal a smart city was long overdue. Now the scope of the project has expanded to include Udupi and Malpe with private sector assistance. A Bengaluru firm has already prepared the blueprint. The Smart City Mission will facilitate in the creation of better infrastructure for Malpe, Manipal and Udupi.”
