This is highly interactive conference and we expect to engage with Government officials, utilities, planners, business leaders, academics, researchers and citizen communities. The conference main theme include planning and development of smart cities in Rajasthan, panel discussions on issues and challenges of smart cities with a thrust on PPP mode of resource mobilization.
The Modi Government has recently announced the list of first 20 cities to be developed as “Smart Cities” with Bhubaneswar topping the list followed by Pune, Jaipur, Surat, Kochi, Ahmedabad, Jabalpur, Vishakhapatnam, Sholapur, Davanagere, Indore, New Delhi, Coimbatore, Kakinada, Belgaum, Udaipur, Guwahati, Chennai, Ludhiana and Bhopal.
The winning cities will receive an investment amount of Rs. 50,802 Crore from Ministry of Urban Development over next five years with all the cities proposing public-private-partnership as a major vehicle of resource mobilization. Rajasthan was first to submit smart city plan to the Urban Development Ministry - investment outlays proposal for Kota Rs. 1,493 Crore, Ajmer Rs. 1,300 Crore, Udaipur Rs. 1,221 Crore and Jaipur Rs. 2,403 Crore - Total of Rs. 6475 Crore of investment over 5 years for developing 4 cities as smart cities has been proposed.
Under smart cities project, each selected city would get central assistance of Rs. 100 Crores per year for 5 years. Smart cities have the mission to ensure uninterrupted power and water supply, internet connecting e-governance along with quality infrastructure. National Institute of Urban Affairs said that the mission for smart cities is very clear in its objective that the identity of the city in terms of heritage and economic activities will be retained while strengthening the core infrastructure
and improving the quality of life.
