KOLKATA: The state government has given approval and financial sanction of Rs 2.9 crore to the urban development department for the Kolkata Metropolitan Development Authority (KMDA) to switch over from high pressure sodium vapour lights to LED and restore all faulty cable lines on the stretch from Kamalgazi flyover end to Padma Pukur More on Southern Bypass towards Baruipur.

Government officials said that the agency that will be engaged for the work will also need to monitor the entire installation for one year.

Officials said that under the green city mission scheme, the state government was funding the urban local bodies to install LED lights in their respective areas. Civic bodies including the Kolkata Municipal Corporation, Bidhannagar municipal corporation, New Town Kolkata Development authority and other municipalities were switching to LED lights, replacing the old sodium vapour lights.

Only last week, the state urban development and municipal affairs (UD & MA) department approved a fund sanction of around Rs one crore to install LED street lights in six wards of Howrah Municipal Corporation (HMC).

State government officials said that the green city mission scheme had been launched for all municipalities and municipal bodies across the state to develop a sustainable and environment friendly atmosphere. Switching over from conventional street lights like sodium vapour to energy efficient LED lights on the roads and other public places is an important component of the green city mission scheme.
