The Special Purpose Vehicle will also include Mayor of Trivandrum Corporation, Local Self Government Department Principal Secretary, Public Works Department Secretary, District Collector, Corporation Secretary, Water Authority Managing Director, Water Resources Department Secretary, Urban Affairs Director and Thiruvananthapuram Development Authority (TRIDA) Secretary.

Trivandrum Smart City Mission took the decisions keeping in mind the learnings from the SPV formed for the Smart City project for Kochi.

The implementation of the project in Kochi had lagged owing to the non-availability of top officials. This has been corrected in Trivandrum Smart City Mission. Local body members who can dedicate their time for Smart City project has been invited because of the tight deadline.

The Corporation also requested for the continuance of its Smart City Cell, which the government has agreed to.  The formation of SPV for Smart City project will make the coordination of projects between different departments much easier.
