We have already implemented many smart systems like multi-level public parking management system, e-governance and Intelligent Transport Management System in the twin cities of Hubballi-Dharwad. With a global MNC IT giant like NEC coming on board we hope to make Hubballi Dharwad one of the best smart cities of the country in next few months,” said Ms. Hephsiba Rani Korlapati MD HDSCL.

Takayuki Inaba, Managing Director, NEC Technologies India, said, “Hubballi, the cultural and educational hub of the state of Karnataka, is also the second largest city of the state and forms a continuous urban area with the city of Dharwad. Hubballi-Dharwad twin cities form the largest metropolitan area in the state after the capital Bengaluru.”

One of the key elements of the project is an ICT based solid waste management system in which RFID tags will be placed on around 300,000 household bins and garbage collection activity will be centrally tracked from the ICCC, right from the bin collection at households until dumping in designated areas. Citizens will also be able to send their grievances related to garbage collection directly to respective authorities through a smart mobile application. Higher authorities in Hubli Dharwad Municipal Corporation (HDMC) would be able to directly monitor and track all these activities through a common dashboard at ICCC.
