Public Works Department (PWD) has notified a large number of police stations in the city namely Brahmpuri, Murlipura, Jhotwara, Harmaada, Malviya Nagar etc. Not only in the police stations, but also in police quarters the work of making the rooftop rainwater harvesting structures will be done. The work will begin in May and is expected to be completed by the time rains hit the city. “Attempts are being made to complete the work before rains so that the benefit can be taken,” said an engineer of PWD while speaking to DNA.

Cash crunch puts Jaipur Development Authority’s smart dream in limbo 8.4.2018 DNA: Money
Despite showing interest in several ‘smart’ components of its international ‘sister’ cities, Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) has been unable to advance for their replication. The authority to have entered ‘knowledge sharing’ understanding with counterparts abroad has been unable to reap its benefits due to financial strains.  “The smart city works are being implemented mostly through ‘Jaipur Smart City Limited’ through the funding for smart city projects, the JDA facing financial issues has not initiated any such work recently,” said a senior JDA officer.
