The RFID chip has been installed in 1,12,669 properties in Belagavi city. RFID tags were installed at the buildings for effective door to door garbage collection. When garbage collector collects the garbage from houses he will scan the RFID chip that data will be shared to Intelligent Command and Control Centre. District Collector MG Hiremath instructed Belagavi Corporation officials to use a tag reader while collecting garbage.
He was speaking at a coordination meeting on Tuesday (Sept. 14) at the state-of-the-art Integrated Command and Control Center at Visveshwaraiah Nagar which was built under the Smart City Project.
Garbage collection from the house and garbage sorting must be done regularly. In order to implement this, more than 300 R.F.I.D. tag readers have been distributed to Corporation from Smart City to scan the tags. He also requested citizens to make use of ‘My Belagavi’ citizen app which has many features and citizens can lodge complaints or various departmental grievances for the quick response.
Police department, Transport department, corporation, Health department and Fire departments should take advantage of the sophisticated facilities at the Command Center to provide better services to the citizens, Dc M.G. Hiremath said.
Facilities will be handed over to all concerned departments after the completion of all Smart City project. He said all departments should take advantage of the command center in coordination with each other.

He added that CCTV footage needs to be integrated with the RTO and Police Department’s current surveillance system to enable them to monitor vehicles.
