Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said in Assembly that Mumbai will be turned into a Wi-Fi city with 1,200 hot spots under city mega project by May 1, 2017. The Wi-Fi network would be used for smart parking and smart transportation, by providing real-time updates on the routes and available capacity of the various modes of public transport in the city. The hot spots would be set up at prominent locations — the Gateway of India and Chowpatty, across the island city and the suburbs. Another key project for Mumbai — installation of CCTV cameras across the city for security — is mid-way and would be completed by November-December, he said.
