As part of transforming Mumbai into a Smart City, the state government will provide as many as 1,200 wi-fi hotspots in the megapolis, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said today.
“We are making Mumbai a wi-fi city by May 2017 with 1,200 hotspots at important places,” Fadnavis said during a debate on issues related to urban development in the state Assembly.
This was another important step after the CCTV project towards making Mumbai a Smart City, he said.
Of the total of 1,200 hotspots, 500 will be operational in the first phase by November 2016, Fadnavis said. Talking about other Mumbai-related issues, he said BMC (municipal corporation) will treat all the sewage water before it flows into the sea.
A project to generate electricity from the waste was being set up, Fadnavis said.
