Keeping a promise; Indian smart cities coming soon

By NewsGram Staff Writer

Modi Government’s long promised smart city plan is set to kick off. Urban Development Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu said on Monday that the project will start with the selection process.

“A Smart Cities Challenge system will be approved by the cabinet anytime this month. Cities must qualify themselves through city-challenge criteria like sanitation, clean water, power, greenery quotient and ratio between revenue and expenditure on municipal salaries,” Naidu said.

The project is to be of a public-private partnership (PPP) kind as the government needs help from the industry.

The government’s role in the project will be of a facilitator or “handholding” and the focus will be on transparency and accountability.

The selection process will start by the end of this month.
