The commissioner was reviewing the ongoing work under the smart city initiative worth around Rs 1050 crore.

Additional commissioner of TMC and chief executive officer of the initiative, Sandeep Malvi made a presentation giving information and the current status of all the projects. He informed that out of the total 39 projects, 24 have been completed and 15 projects are in progress.

Meanwhile, Bangar instructed officials that drainage works should be completed within three months after the monsoons. The civic chief expressed satisfaction with the progress of the SATIS (Station Area Traffic Improvement Scheme) project in Thane East and the underground parking works under Gaodevi Maidan.
