  1. 1. An Initiative To Develop… All it requires is Skill, Will and Determination. TEAM MEMBERS :- 1) AMIT JEDHE. 2) NICKY GHAI. 3) PRATHMESH PAWAR. 4) DHIRENDRA JARE. 5) SHUBHAM INDE. Future Cities: Ensuring world class civic amenities in urban India
  3. 3. City/UA Name of the State Population (in lakh) 1 Delhi Delhi 128.7 7 2 Mumbai Maharashtra 164.3 4 3 Ahmedabad Gujarat 45.25 4 Bangalore Karnataka 57.01 5 Chennai Tamil Nadu 65.60 6 Kolkata West Bengal 132.0 6 7 Hyderabad Andhra- Pradesh 57.42 POPULATION PROBLEMS IN URBAN CITIES Urban cities can be built up according to the requirements of the migrating population and the municipal corporations can prove helpful about it. Social awareness of the existing urban population about family planning, employment schemes & developing their standard of living can be helpful. The growing population in urban cities due to migration and its inability to handle it is becoming a serious threat to the nation’s development and has become a issue which needs primary attention. Development of rural areas by implementing family planning schemes, employment programmes can prove helpful in coping up with migration problems. Migration in urban cities is mainly caused due lack of employment opportunities, population growth and low standard of living in rural areas.
  4. 4.  New Delhi demands 36 million cubic meters of water per day. The New Delhi Jal Board supplies just over 30 million cubic meters per day, but only 17 million cubic meters actually reaches consumers due to infrastructure problems, leaking pipes etc.  This being a more or less common feature in most states of India ,it can be prevented by taking appropriate steps by firstly improving present infrastructure ,supply ,storage and most importantly by spreading awareness.
  5. 5. Need of Developing Sewage Water Treatment Plants Increasing volumes of domestic, hospital and industrial wastewater are being produced in several cities in India .. Even where expensive wastewater treatment plants are installed, only a small percentage of the total wastewater volume is treated before discharge resulting in rivers & lakes becoming severely contaminated. Only 4000 of 17,600 MLD waste water generated in India is treated. Approximately 30,000 MLD of pollutants enter India's rivers, 10,000 million liters from industrial units alone. Developing the techniques and the qualities of the waste water treatment plants across the cities in India by implementing modern technology is the very first essential step which should be taken. This can be achieved by raising more funds for the waste water management bringing modern technologies and spreading awareness in the masses.
  6. 6.  Roads in most of the urban cities are infamous as they are known to last mostly one single monsoon after they are infested with potholes. Prevailing reasons are negligence and corruption.  Concrete roads can be prepared as compared to asphalt as they have more workability and life as compared to asphalt.  Related to transportation ,traffic is also a major concern. So to make transportation as efficient as possible a much more efficient signal system is a must.  Road traffic department in every city must be modernized and the corruption must be stopped to ensure a smooth traffic flow across the city.  Construction of flyovers and underground tunnels must be made to facilitate smooth and hectic less traffic.
  7. 7. The main energy problems in urban cities nowadays is the increasing prices of fuel, domestic gas and electricity. Alternatives to this depleting energy sources must be implemented. Renewable energy sources like solar energy, wind energy etc. are good solutions. People should be enlightened about saving the energy resources and programmes for the same should be conducted.  Below is an illustrated example of implemented alternate energy source in Germany. Same can be done in urban Indian cities.
  8. 8.  Germany is the world's top photovoltaics (PV) installer, with a solar PV capacity of 34.499 gigawatts (GW) at the end of July 2013.  The German new solar PV installations increased by about 7.6 GW in 2012, and solar PV provided 18 TWh (billion kilowatt- hours) of electricity.  Being in a relatively more tropical zone India receives tremendously more incident light. Therefore ,the installation of photovoltaic cells would be very effective and an important priority.
  9. 9. The before mentioned points are just a few facets of existing city infrastructure .Each is equally important . When all of them are equally improved the city develops on an all round basis . So if we aim for the urban development of India , every factor must be given due attention .
