Seeing school students amongst the audience, while Mr. Fadnavis expressed his happiness to see children in the IT-oriented CompEx audience, he said that the new generation is born with technology and have a natural sense of understanding technology more than their parents who may be successful corporate or businessmen.

On the one hand, while the Maharashtra government is dedicatedly working to put Nagpur amongst the fast emerging smart cities of India with high level digital applications across the fields of education, industry, households, entertainment, and every other walk of life which is touched by the super fast penetration of the IT advancements, on the other hand Maharashtra Metro is already on the fast track and gaining speed with every passing month to bring the mass rapid transport system, the Majhi Metro to the people of Nagpur and adjoining towns.
