The Singapore Government would provide all needed support to Jabalpur Municipal Corporation (JMC) in making Jabalpur a Smart City. To discuss the possible role of Singapore Government in the venture, a delegation of an international institute, authorised by the Singapore Government, on Monday, met with Mayor, Dr Swati Godbole and discussed the economic and technical support the country could provide to the civic body.
