Category : All, Future, khichdi, Voices · by Apr 30th, 2015

With an urban population set to rise by more than 400 million people to 814 million by 2050, India faces the kind of mass urbanization only seen before in China, and many of its biggest cities are already bursting at the seams.

India is drawing on the development of smart cities at the global level. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision ‘Digital India’, has a plan to build 100 smart cities across the country. PM Modi in his speech said, “Cities in the past were built on riverbanks. They are now built along highways. But in the future, they will be built based on availability of optical fiber networks and next-generation infrastructure.”

Gandhinagar | the capital of Gujarat will be the first “smart” city

His grand scheme, still a nebulous concept involving quality communications and infrastructure, is beginning to take shape outside Gandhinagar, capital of Gujarat, with the first “smart” city the government hopes will provide a model for India’s urban future.

These Smart Cities will be an intrinsically sustainable city which recognizes the physical limits to its growth without compromising the quality of life of the present and future generations.

The all smart cities will be modular and dynamic in nature and has the ability to adopt and evolve with time without compromising the ecological integrity and quality of life of its inhabitants, With recognizing its limits to economic and employment opportunities within the limits of assured natural resources, supportive and assimilative capacity of the region.

So, here are 10 suggested attributes which give you glimpse of India’s upcoming 100 smart cities.

  1. Information, communication, and technology (ICT)-enabled governance: the smart city will be fully governed by  IT-enabled administration and governance. Often referred to as “smart government”, the use of integrated technology platforms that are easily accessible across various devices to provide access, transparency, speed, participation and redressal in public services
  2. Efficient utilities – energy, water, solid waste and effluents: This area is often the most talked about after IT. Smart meters, renewable energy, energy conservation, water harvesting, effluent recycling, scientific solid waste disposal methods will be all clearly the hallmark of the upcoming smart city.
  3. Meaningful PPPs: The creative use of public-private partnerships (PPPs) is a key attribute of the smart city concept. PPPs are to be used not only as a source of much-needed capital but also for the efficient delivery of utilities with agreed service-level standards. PPPs could range from health care to street lighting.
  4. Safety and security: This aspect is high in public consciousness, especially with disconcerting news on the safety of women, road rage, robbery attacks on the elderly and juvenile delinquency. Clearly, networks of video-cameras, brightly lit public areas, intensive patrolling and surveillance, identity-verified access, and rapid response to emergency calls are all on the expectations list.
  5. Financial sustainability: to “take charge of their own destinies”. Nowhere is this more important than financial independence. This is only possible with elaborate and extensive tapping of all sources of revenue – property taxes, advertisements & enable the raising of long-term debt like municipal bonds.
  6. Citizen-participative local government: The enthusiastic participation of citizens in local issues needs careful designing of electoral and participative for all .
  7. Sufficient social capital: Smart cities cannot be devoid of the appropriate levels of social infrastructure – like schools, hospitals, public spaces, sporting and recreational grounds and retail and entertainment venues. Along with a brain that works, and hands and legs that move, it must also have a heart that beats to the joys of daily living.
  8. Transit-oriented habitats: “Walk-to-work” is the dream solution here. Nevertheless, conveniently networked public transportation with first- and last-mile connectivity in place, reduced motivation to use personal vehicles, use of electric cars, and bicycle paths are all in the expectation matrix.
  9. Green features: Minimizing the carbon footprint and eco-friendliness are de rigueur. Parks and verdant open spaces, absence of pollution, use of renewables, conservation and recycling are mandatory.
  10. Minimum population criteria: India has 5,545 urban agglomerations. Class 1 towns (called cities) are those with a population of 100,000 and above. This should be the minimum population cut-off for a smart city.

Achieving all the 10 attributes may well be Utopian. So, maybe even if seven out of the 10 attributes are achieved, we should have no hesitation in declaring an urban habitation as a smart city.
