On May 24, the government had announced a list of 13 new smart cities, taking the total count to 33. The selected cities were Agartala, Bhagalpur, Chandigarh, Dharamshala, Faridabad, Imphal, Lucknow, New Town Kolkata, Raipur, Ranchi, Panaji, Port Blair and Warangal. Read more

Following the end of the Budget session, the ordinance had lapsed. Read more
