What is Smart City
- The definition of Smart City varies from city to city, depending on the level of development, willingness to change and reform, resources and aspirations of the city residents. The purpose of the Smart Cities Mission is to drive economic growth and improve the quality of life of people by enabling local area development and harnessing technology,especially technology that leads to Smart outcomes.
- The focus is on sustainable and inclusive development and the idea is to look at compact areas, create a replicable model which will act like a light house to other aspiring cities. Area-based development will transform existing areas including slums, into better planned ones, thereby improving livability of the whole City.
- The Pan City initiatives will look into developing citizen centric e-governance solutions, utility management and other smart solutions. Comprehensive development in this way will improve quality of life, create employment and enhance incomes for all, especially the poor and the disadvantaged, leading to inclusive Cities.
