More than 200 technology providers are expected to showcase their products. "The conclave also aims to showcase best practices adopted by states/UTs in the successful implementation of PMAY-U along with the achievements of other urban missions of MoHUA and their roadmap/action plan for driving the economic growth and improving the quality of life of people across the country," the statement stated.
