    NO Smart cities for North East or Tripura

  • arvind

    We are very much lagging behind than other countries. I was in Houston for 6 months. Population of Houston was around 10 lakhs in 2001 and within 10 years i.e. by 2011 it rosed to 60 lakhs with good city planning. There is no rush anywhere. 6 to 10 lane roads are common everywhere in the city. Offices near the residences. Schools are nearby the townships. Waterwall with 11000 Gallons capacity per minutes is a good tourist attraction. Museums, Gardens, Childrens Water park, Baggis, Zoos are worth to be seen. There are more than 4 Airports in the city. One International, another National and two are Private i.e. for private planes. Nasa can be seen by anyone. There is no security check or prohibition like India. Council Hall i.e. Assembly Hall can also be seen by all common men and women. Such cities are only imaginary cities in India. But with the concept of Smart City we can also expect such good and lovable cities in India.

      We are pleasant to say narandra modi is good reformar of India

    • Dr A K Banerjee

      That was just great, but Houston is not the only one in USA. There are many similarities among them. 10% of the “City-care” given by US cities could hardly be offered by any Indian Cities or by future Smart Cities. Pl. look at the new ones.

    It is unfair in the selection of smart cities. some states got more than 10 viz. tamilnadu and some states got 2 or 3. even trivendrum,Kolkata,patna are not in the list.
    the town like dindigul and tanjavur having popolation of 2 lac were selected.

  • madhujya chakravorty

    Telangana is a newly formed state which in highly backward which needed to given importance but only 2 cities have been selected and this is unfair selection khammam and karimnagar’s selection could be better insted of hyderabad which is already an international city

    Sir please update advantages of smart city’s plan……

    • Dr.LAXMI KANT DADHICH

      Some suggestions for KOTA Smart City Plan
      DR.L.K.DADHICH
      ENVIRONMENTAL BIOLOGIST
      ADVISOR ISTD KOTA CHAPTER
      Kota is a city of education, temples, gardens, water, electricity, industries and religion and its economy is mainly based in its metropolitan way of life. It has got its own age old system of administration and service to the society. Beauty of Kota lies in the harmonious life represented by its metropolis citizenship. Kota is well connected to the various states of the country by rail and road and IS SOON GOING TO BE CONNECTED BY AIR as well. A CITY OF ACADEMIA, INTELIGENTIA, TECHNOCRATS , RELIGIOUS LEADERS AND POLITICIANS , KOTA is heading towards becoming a SMART CITY where following suggestions may be of extraordinary use to its planners.
      • Various Housing colonies are “engines of economic growth” and ensuring that they function as efficient engines is critical to our economic development.

      * In Kota, since we are still a developing economy, we have the opportunity to choose the path we want to take. Clearly, we should take the low energy path, especially in view of environmental sustainability as well as in view of the fact that we have to import a major part of our energy requirement, at prices that have been very vulnerable to the international political situation.

      *As the fruits of development reach an increasingly large number of people, the pace of
      migration from the rural areas to the cities is increasing. A neo middle class is
      emerging which has the aspiration of better living standards. Unless, new cities are
      developed to accommodate the burgeoning number of people, the exisitng cities would
      soon become unlivable.

      *People migrate to cities primarily for employment. To support their happy and
      Comfortable living, they also need good quality housing cost efficient physical and social
      Infrastructure such as water, sanitation, electricity, clean air, education, health care,
      security, entertainment,etc . Industries also locate in cities because there are
      agglomeration economies that provide easy acces to labour and other factors of
      production. In this context, Smart Cities are those that are able to attract
      investments. Good infrastructure, simple and transparent online processes that
      make it easy to establish an enterprise and run it efficiently are important
      features of an investor friendly city. Without this a city loses attraction as an
      investment destination. An investor is considered as someone who helps a city
      rather than someone who only profits from it.

      *Competitiveness refers to a city’s ability to create employment opportunities,
      attract investmentsand people. The ease of being able to do business and the
      quality of life it offers determines its competitiveness.

      *Sustainability includes social sustainability, environmental sustainability and
      financial sustainability.

      Quality of Life includes safety and security, inclusiveness, entertainment, ease
      of seeking and obtaining public services, cost efficient healthcare, quality
      education, and opportunities for participation in governance.

      *Essentially, its Institutional Infrastructure (including Governance),
      Physical Infrastructure and Social Infrastructure constitute the three pillars on which
      a city rests. The center of attention for each of these pillars is the citizen. In other
      words a Smart City works towards ensuring the best for all its people, regardless of
      social status, age, income levels, gender, etc.

      *Institutional Infratsructure refers to the activities that relate to the planning
      and management systems in a city. The new technology has provided a new
      dimension to this system making it efficient and transparent, It includes the
      systems of governance, the sense of safety and security, the opportunities for
      entertainment and sports, the open spaces and parks that are available.

      *Physical
      Infrastructurerefers to its stock of physical infrastructure such as the urban mobility system, the
      housing stock, the energysystem, the water supply system, sewerage system, sanitation facilities, solid waste management system, drainage system, etc. which are all integrated throughthe use of technology.

      *Social Services relate to those that work towards developing the human and social capital, such as the educational, healthcare, entertainment, etc systems.These together determine the quality of life of citizens in a city.

      *For a city to attract investments and to create the appropriate economic
      infrastructurefor employment opportunities, it has to first identify its core
      comparative advantages and analyse its potential for generating economice activities.
      Once that is done, the gaps in required economic infrastructure can be determined.
      This would generally comprise the following:
      Industrial Parks and Export Processing Zones
      IT / BT Parks
      Trade centers
      Service Centres, such as tourism centres, etc
      Skill Development Centres
      Financial Centers and Services
      Logistics hubs, warehousing and freight terminals
      Mentoring and Counselling services

      *Reforms in how our cities are governed is necessary as high quality governance,
      with a strong local say in decision making,is critical for Smart Cities. Typically, the
      principle to be followed is “Governance by Incentives rather than Governance by
      Enforcement”. This would imply that people do the right things because there are
      incentives to do so and not due to the fear of penal action. However, a greater sense of
      respect for civic discipline needs to be brought in through deterrents to civic
      indiscipline. Also, decisions will need to be taken at the local level and with wellestablished
      processes through which citizens can actively participate in such decision
      making

      * 1.Improvements in public transport – metro rail, BRT, LRT, Monorail, etc
      2. Improvments in infrastructrure of other motor vehicles – ring roads, bypasses,
      elevated roads, improvements in the existing road ways
      3. Improvements in infrastructure for walking, cycling and waterways

      *Reliable, adequate and high quality Utility services is critical in a Smart City.
      Whether it is electricity or telephony or ICT services, they need to be very reliable
      and adequate. 24 X 7 services are necessary. For example, a minimum of 100 Mbps of
      internet bandwidth and wide availability of wifi will be very important features. It
      should be the right of every citizen to get these facilities on demand. Similarly,
      municipal services such water supply, drainage, solid waste management need to be of
      very high quality and available 24 X 7. Telephone services should be available for every
      household. A Smart City cannot have only a few hours of water supply a day or
      electricity that goes off for several hours or the streets littered with garbage. The general appearance of the city has to be pleasing and clean.

      *Have an existing master plan that is valid for at least the next 10 years or one
      that is likely to be approved shortly and have such a validity

      Have digitized spatial maps

      Issue all clearances for projects in a collegiate manner using online processes
      and in a time bound manner

      Electronic/Online delivery of all public services, so that visits to the local
      offices are rendered gradually redundant.

      Free right of way for laying optic fibre networks, water supply lines, sewerage
      systems, draining systems and other utilities.
      Create a platform for effectively communicate with the citizens and keep them
      abreast of various activities and plans of the city.

      Adopt tariff structures that are affordable for the poor and yet minimize
      waste. In doing so the state/ cities could use their own resources to bridge the
      gap between the revenue and expenses.

      Create open data platforms that are regularly updated.

      Make all information and decisions taken available in the public domain

      Setup a regulatory body for all utility services such as water supply etc. so that
      a level playing field is made available to the private sector and tariffs are set in
      a manner that balances financial sustainability with quality.
