The MoU was signed between HIMUDA and Asian Pacific Singapore Enterprise here Thursday.

The development of a smart integrated township near the state capital was an ambitious project of the government and will attempt to decongest the state capital.

HIMUDA has acquired 32 hectares land for developing this township near Juberhatti airstrip, which is connected by three national highways.

Some are asking if a Singapore housing company will be able to build a smart township in the Himalayan terrain of Himachal Pradesh.
