The Madhya Pradesh Government is waiting for the final approval of centres to develop Indore smart city on the 300-acre non-processing area of the Indore special economic zone (SEZ). The state government had already approved the detailed project report (DPR) and also applied to the Centre for de-notification of the non-processing area.

“We have identified 300 acres of land out of a total 276 hectares (681 acres) in the non-processing zone of the Indore SEZ for developing a smart city. The feasibility study has been done and the state government has already approved the detailed project report (DPR). We will come out with tenders to select a developer once the Centre de-notifies the land,” an Audyogik Kendra Vikas Nigam official said.

According to officials the smart city will be a self-dependent township with modern infrastructure and amenities including residential and commercial properties, schools, clinics, and banking facilities. The shortlisted developer will prepare the master plan of the smart city. Once the master plan is approved by the concerned departments , the work will begin and the developer will get the lease rights for the next 30 years.

“The development of non-processing zone of the SEZ has been delayed for many years due to one reason or the other. Hopefully, the project will not face any more hurdles,” Pithampur Audyogik Sangathan president Gautam Kothari said.

Indore SEZ located in Pithampur is spread over an area of 1,113 hectares. At present, there are 47 operational units in the zone and five new units are under construction. Exports from the SEZ crossed Rs 3,919 crore in 2014-15, a growth of 35% from Rs 2,909 crore in the previous financial year.

    FOR SMART CITIES PEOPLE SHOULD ALSO BE SMART. SO FIRST OF ALL WE SHOULD EDUCATE THE PEOPLE ABOUT BASIC INFRASTUTURE USES. WHEN THEY WILL USE BASIC IMPORTANT RESOURESES CAREFULLY, THEY ONLY WE CAN COMPLETE OUR DREAMS OF SMART CITIES.

    i think in every society colplain boxes should be installed where weekly checks should be done by area parshads and authorities. this would create an open forum and people will feel their partcipation in the society… setting a goal for having a smart city is good but its a continous working process.. and needs partcipation of all individuals

    There is lot of confusion among peoples about smart city, govt. officers deployed in the projects are engaged them in cleanliness, construction of nali etc. Its like smart phone so give emphasis in creation of small small database like automation of employment exchange, automation of records, employment exchange should develop a portal that may contains requirement of manpower etc so needy may get information and contact directly to employer and get the work. Its just glimpse how to make a office smart. Think now a day we can book a seat in a multiplex, such kind of smart solution can be deployed in govt. offices. Can a person book or get appointment from a govt hospital docotors, think towards all these things otherwise all monies will go in waste like other govt. projects.
