Remaining problems in Smart City

Even though some of the big problems are solved there exist still some problems for making Smart city, a reality. The land has still not got SEZ position. If the land doesn't get SEZ before March 31 then company has to give SEZ request to union government once more. The next problem is the region of freehold righted land. Before, the land under Kinfra is decided for this purpose. But a kadambrayar flows between this area. So this land will not get SEZ because only 25 acres of land which are together only will get SEZ.
