Germany to join hands in developing 3 cities

With Germany on Wednesday agreeing to partner India in developing three smart cities, a six-member joint committee has been set up to come up with a roadmap and identify the cities in the next three months.

During the meeting between Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu and the visiting German minister for Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety Barbara Hendricks here, Germany expressed its interest in developing three smart cities in India, a release said.

Following that, a six-member joint committee was set up to evolve a roadmap, identify the cities to be developed and projects to be taken up with the German assistance. The panel would come up with a report in three months.

The committee will have two members from the Urban Development Ministry, one from the Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation and three from Germany.

Hendricks has invited a delegation from India to participate in an Urban Development Conference which Germany would host in April.
