  1. Why don’t they concentrate on waste management of spicot and Ambur leather tanerys. Also water management.. currently palars river bed deals with it.. but can’t depend for long term.. smart is not technology, it’s being vigilant and saving resources.

    1. Exactly our thoughts too. We felt the same. We hope to raise these concerns if the smart city project committee of Vellore organizes a feedback session again as we need to preserve our resources before going for the development projects.
