Tel Aviv to help Thane be­come a smart city

The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - TIMES CITY -

Smart city Tel Aviv has joined hands with Thane to repli­cate the civic trans­for­ma­tion it un­der­went, us­ing dig­i­tal tech­nolo­gies, in Thane .

Is­rael Am­bas­sador Daniel Car­mon said this af­ter in­au­gu­rat­ing his coun­try’s pavil­ion at the third Smart Cities In­dia-2017 Expo at the Pra­gati Maidan in Delhi. “A few days ago, Tel Aviv mu­nic­i­pal­ity and Thane mu­nic­i­pal cor­po­ra­tion joined hands as part of In­dia’s ‘Smart City’ ini­tia­tive,” said Car­mon.

As part of the co­op­er­a­tion, the two civic bod­ies, along­side an pri­vate tech­nol­ogy ma­jor from Is­rael with an In­dian part­ner, will work on repli­cat­ing the ‘DigiTel Aviv’ project, as ‘DigiThane’, said a se­nior of­fi­cial of the Tel Aviv Mu­nic­i­pal­ity.

The am­bas­sador said that the smart city co­op­er­a­tion is the re­sult of visit of a del­e­ga­tion led by the Ma­ha­rash­tra chief min­is­ter Deven­dra Fad­navis in 2015.

Car­mon said, “A meet­ing of all stake­hold­ers from both the coun­tries was held to dis­cuss chal­lenges and so­lu­tions re­lated to wa­ter, from re­cy­cling to de­sali­na­tion and more.”
