I am pleased to learn that the Indian Buildings Congress is organizing its 24th Annual Convention & National Seminar on “Development of New Greenfield Townships” from 6th – 8th January, 2020 in Vigyan Bhawan, New Delhi.
The existing scenario of ever increasing and all pervasive congestion, haphazard and unplanned development with increased possibility of disasters coupled with saturated infrastructure makes providing sustainable, smart and intelligent cities to citizens a challenging task. However, developing new ‘smart’ townships would not only address the above issues but would also spur economic growth. These new townships should be conceptualised around ‘ease of living’.
I hope that the seminar will deliberate on these aspects including dissemination of latest technologies available to encourage developers to use resources in a sustainable manner.
I convey my best wishes to the organizers and participants of the Annual Convention & National Seminar.
