However, the city might just lose out on the opportunity to receive major funding and that could be because of us Lucknowites. As the residents of Lucknow you can still help the city remain in the running for the union Smart City Fund, here's how!
What's the update?
The union Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs has been conducting an "Ease of Living" survey across the country which surveys the living standards of 100 cities in the country. This survey is a competition which determines which city has the best amenities and then awards an extra smart city fund for the cities which qualify the competition with a good ranking.
The survey started on February 1 and will be on till February 29. It requires 2 lakh residents to give their city and its amenities feedback, yet so far only 600 people have given their feedbacks and taken the survey.
