SMART CITY

The Smart Cities Mission is a bold new initiative by the Government of India to drive economic growth and improve the quality of life of people by enabling local development and harnessing technology as a means to create smart outcomes for citizens.


Developing smart visions and solutions requires leveraging all available assets. The creativity of citizens. The proficiency of experts. The know-how of business. Emerging technologies. It’s about taking advantage of new tools and partners to improve the quality of life for residents.


Ministry of Urban Development has come up with a concept note on Smart City. MOUD has very clearly set the benchmark for a smart city. We are reproducing the benchmark as set in the concept note of MoUD date 3.12.2014
