Smart cities - Mangalore as a port city of Karnataka

More or less Mangalore will get into the list of 100 smart cities project of Central Government. Karnataka will get 7 out of 100. Many countries have come forward in participate in 100 Smart city project and finalized cities they will take up. Wonder which country will invest in Mangalore. Kuwait could be one such country as it is picking up stake in petrochemical industries here. A few more gulf countries have come forward to invest in industries like petrochemicals, LNG terminals here. Let us wait to find out which will invest on Smart city project.

Better if Mangalore together with Udupi should be considered as a port city. And funding is needed for laying Mangalore-Udupi Metroline.

So air pollution is going to be monitored smartly.

Not getting idea on how Smart City fund will be used. Are they going to lay fresh utility lines by digging a tunnel on main roads?
