About SmartCity

Nowadays Humans became curious to know each information within seconds. Humans started living in silos, then they started forming groups then communities then cities and the process goes on. Now is the time to restructure these cities or communities to ease the life of humans.


A smart city (also smarter city) uses digital technologies to enhance performance and wellbeing of the citizens. These digital technologies enables to:
  • Reduce the costs and resource consumption
  • Engage more effectively and actively with its citizens
  • Smart Governance - “SMART Governance” is about the future of the public services.
  • Smart Energy - "Smart Energy", ecofriendly energy solutions with alternative sources.
  • Smart Environment - "Smart Environments", contains contributions from leading researchers, describing techniques and issues related to developing and living in intelligent environments.
  • Smart Transportation – "Smart Transport", initiative promotes transportation practices that advance environmental sustainability and equitable economic development, while maintaining high standards of governmental efficiency and transparency.
  • Smart IT & Communication - "Smart city communications", that connect people, objects, and sensors involve multiple access and aggregation networks that can vary from public to private and wired to wireless.
  • Smart Health - "Smart Health", is a new paradigm for the provision of healthcare within smart cities.
  • Smart Education - "Smart Education", is having an out of the box procedure to organize class for each of the students of different ages.
  • Smart Buildings - "Smart buildings", deliver useful building services that make occupants productive (e.g. illumination, thermal comfort, air quality, physical security, sanitation, and many more) at the lowest cost and environmental impact over the building lifecycle.
  • Smart Transport - Maximum Travel Time of 30 min in small cities, 45 min in Metroplotian cities.
  • Smart Water - 24X7 Water Supply, Pure Water
  • Smart Waste Management - 100% household should have access to toilets, 100% schools have toilets for girls.
  • Smart Electricity - 100% household have electricity connection, 24X7 supply of electricity.
  • Smart Communication - 100% household have telephone connection including mobile.
The Smart Cities Mission requires smart people who actively participate in governance and reforms. Citizen involvement is much more than a ceremonial participation in governance. Smart people involve themselves in the definition of the Smart City, decisions on deploying Smart Solutions, implementing reforms, doing more with less and oversight during implementing and designing post-project structures in order to make the Smart City developments sustainable. The participation of smart people will be enabled by the SPV through increasing use of ICT, especially mobilebased tools.
SmartCities may create the value in the following ways:
  1. Public spending is reduced in the long term on the public infrastructure in smart city and buildings with efficient building automation, water and sanitation facilities, electricity and high-speed internet connectivity and incident reporting.
  2. The efficiency of public services and their quality leads to higher satisfaction quotient in the citizens, which in turn leads to effective utilization of services provided.
  3. Provides base for better decision making for identification and enhancement of the city boundaries or inclusion of new services/infrastructure requirements in the city limits.
  4. Helps to promote social development holistically such as basic education, employment, food and housing security for all strata of society.
  5. Real time information availability – enhances citizen awareness about the city they live in by providing information update in real time and equipping them to make informed decisions.
  6. Intelligent networks of people, mobiles, sensors and actuators generating data at the rate of more than terabyte per second leading to advanced analytics in real time which helps in disaster management and recover post the disaster.
  7. Energy efficient smart cities lead to sustainable management of energy resources in the long run through smart grids, efficient distribution and metering and processing and measuring of other environmental parameters along to synchronize with changing demand patterns.
  8. Public and voluntary participation in government and e-government policy making.
  9. Increased public safety through efficient management of public emergency systems, civil defense, video surveillance and fire and other hazard prevention and detection.
  10. Holistic social development through provision of basic education for all the citizens including e-learning and teleworking, e-tourism and cultural information, e-commerce, etc.

SmartCity Domains

Smart cities are those where the quality of governance is enhanced with the integration of applications and data centers’ through the use of IT and communications. Smart governance is a process of reform in the way government works, and shares information with the public to deliver services. This brings government organizations closer to the public by using technology such as e-services, social media, applications and other platforms. It is about improved governance and transforming the ways that public services are delivered.


Urban transportation is an important element for smart cities. Hence, the need to review city transportation systems in India (including metros, BRT’s, monorail, trams, waterways, walkways, bicycle tracks, etc.), to provide new and enhanced infrastructure for public transportation. EVs / HEVs, with infrastructure for recharging electric vehicles, and battery storage are expected to play a role in improving the quality of life in Indian cities. Fiscal incentives could encourage faster development in cities. To encourage the use of EV’s, the government has launched a National Mission on Electric Mobility, with a target of 6 million electric vehicles by 2020. Electric vehicle charging stations in urban areas and along state and national highways are to be introduced by 2027.
Smart education will change the way the studies happen. Students and teachers will migrate from schoolbooks to e-learning delivered through computers, tablets and mobile devices. Schools must adopt these technologies and upgrade the infrastructure to allow students and schools to stay connected with real time information.
Smart Water includes 24X7 availability of pure water, with metered connection and 100% water leakage stoppage.
Smart Electricity include 24X7 availability of Electricity, with 100% metered connection.
In smart city approach in order to complement the skills, expertise and resources of each other as well as alleviate the financing burden for the growth and development of the healthcare sector, the private and public sectors are now working together at a varied pace and working model across the states in India. Some of the successful Public Private Partnerships (PPP) involves laboratory services (pathology, radiology, CT scan, MRI etc.), mobile medical units, PHC management, telemedicine services and hospital maintenance. In addition, service delivery through telemedicine, high-end tertiary care; community insurance schemes are other opportunities where private sector will need to participate. Therefore, the need of the hour is to develop Medi-city in every Smart city with minimum land of 50-100 Acres.
