BERHAMPUR : The state government is planning to make Bhubaneswar the first fully Wi-Fi city in Odisha, said information and technology minister Pranab Prakash Das.

"The Software Technology Park of India (STPI), Bhubaneswar, has been asked to prepare the detailed project report (DPR) to offer Wi-Fi services in the state capital," the minister said, during a function at College of Fisheries, Rangeilunda, near here, on Friday.

He said the government would talk to different service providers after the DPR is ready.

"Chief minister Naveen Patnaik wants to make Bhubneswar a Wi-Fi-enabled city. Our department has begun the process," Das said.

The minister, however, ruled out any support from the Centre under Smart City project.

"We will implement it with our own funds," he said. The Centre announced to set up 100 Smart Cities and allocated Rs 7,060 crore. The budget can be estimated after the DPR is prepared, Das added.

Asked if a timeline has been fixed, the minister said the project would be implemented soon.

Bhubaneswar is one of the major IT hubs of the country and the state government wants to offer Wi-Fi services to get more facilities in this sector, he added.
