Most roads leading to the Indian School of Business (ISB) here are getting a new look, thanks to the Progressive Punjab Investors' Summit that will begin at the institute from December 9.
The two summits will be held at ISB and will host business heads and representatives of more than 2,000 companies from the country and abroad. Roads are being re-carpeted, reflectors installed, trees pruned, and railings put on road dividers. The sanitation department is busy lifting garbage that has been lying on roadsides for past several years.
The work is being carried out on directions of deputy chief minister Sukhbir Singh Badal, who has issued instructions that all arrangements for the summit should be done professionally and also emphasised on ensuring the usage of modern communication tools.
For overseeing the arrangement, Badal has constituted a high-level committee under the chairmanship of chief secretary Rakesh Singh, secretary (industries) Karan Avtar Singh, and special principal secretary to chief minister Gagandeep Singh Brar.
