According to the housing and urban affairs ministry official, HP and Siemens are working to set up such a centre in Bhopal, while Bosch, Cisco, Efkon and Rolta are participating in the development of a 'smart' centre in Varanasi.
As many as 99 cities have been selected under the Modi government's Smart City Mission. Each city will get Rs 500 crore to carry out the projects.
Smart centres in eight cities -- Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Surat, Pune, Nagpur, Rajkot, Visakhapatnam, and Kakinada -- have become operational.
