Years after Shillong was selected as a Smart City, the work on at least two projects under the nationwide mission has finally taken off. The state capital was included in the Smart City project in June 2018 after which the Shillong Smart City Limited (SCCL) was constituted. The SCCL website says construction activities for the Polo commercial complex started in November 2020. The site names Badri Rai & Co. as the contractor and marks November 2022 as the expected time of completion of the project. The commercial complex will have six stories besides a stilt and the total built-up area is 12,539 sq. mt. The other project for which construction has started is the redevelopment of the Municipal Market and the parking lot at Laitumkhrah.
