Future Cities: Ensuring world class
civic amenities in urban India

India needs to focus on the
common man. On the prosperity of
the general public and on the living
conditions that its residents have to
face. Use a great deal more energy
in order to contribute more to
global pollution and warming. A
good way of doing this would be to
industrialize the agriculture of India
which would also have the added
benefit of throwing 75 % of the
population out of work so they
could become criminals and drug
India has a young and rapidly
growing population with a
potential demographic dividend.
But India needs thriving cities if
that dividend is to pay out.
India’s economy is Big and
getting Bigger. It is
estimated that India will
become the world’s third
largest economy by 2050.. To
meet those needs it is more
essential to improve our civic
Cities can also deliver a higher quality
of life. Urban scale benefits mean the
cost of delivering basic services is 30
to 40 percent cheaper in
concentrated population centers than
in sparsely populated areas. But to
reap such benefits, India needs to
meet an unprecedented policy
challenge. If it fails to do so, this
could seriously jeopardize its growth
and risk high unemployment.
The Problem !!! Hence to create a world

What MAKES A CITY?
The answer, of course,
is all three……..
• Planning and management means building and carrying out
ways for a city to realize its full potential for while
maintaining efficient day-to-day operations. City leaders
must think holistically about operations insight, law
enforcement and emergency management, government
and agency administration, and urban planning including
• For everything from traffic tie-ups to security breeches,
public safety agencies can gather data from disparate
sources; deliver it in real time to key stakeholders,
emergency management decision makers and first
responders. Analytics are used to derive new insights and
uncover trends before they become systemic issues or
Predict the demand and optimize capacity and assets . To
mange out the heavy traffic, many overflows and metro’s
could be implemented in India. And improvement of the
public transport will greatly reduce the population on roads.
The next problem we face on transportation is the sudden
floods. Many infiltration trenches must be laid throughout.
Which will greatly enhance the ground water and serve as
good drain to the sudden rains .
The Automatic train protection system can be used in all means of
transport. Which would greatly reduce the accidents n provide safety
to all passengers.
The transport sector is an important component of the economy impacting on development and the
welfare of populations. When transport systems are efficient, they provide economic and social
opportunities and benefits that result in positive multipliers effects such as better accessibility to markets,
employment and additional investments.
Conventional transportation technologies usually involve
the use of fossil fuels for vehicle propulsion. Rising fuel
prices are causing mainstream awareness and interest in
alternative transportation technology.
• “Current processes rely on using
separate technology to capture and
utilize the CO2, which makes the
process very inefficient. By combining
the processes the efficiency can be
improved and the energy required to
drive the CO2 reduction is minimized.
It will be a massive challenge but we
have a strong inter-disciplinary team
that works on this cause.
•The most abundant
resource of India is solar
power . There is’nt any
efficient use of this
transports can be made of
Solar power which will
greatly reduce the fuel
consumption of fuels.
The traffic on the roads can be
reduced and the transportation
can be made easier ,
By inter connecting all the
highways in the boarder n a
circular and the same with all
other highways in circular
• Another option for supply expansion is
storage reservoirs to collect excess
surface water during the rainy season.
Surface and Rain
• Salt water is desalinated to produce fresh
water suitable for human
consumption and irrigation. One
potential byproduct of desalination issalt.
• Taking domestic wastewater, giving it a
high degree of treatment, and using the
resulting high-quality reclaimed water for
a new, beneficial purpose.
• Conservation rate structures provide
consumers with a price incentive to
conserve water or to use it more
To balance economic growth
and development with
protection of its natural
resources, managing water
becomes a high priority for
policy makers and utility
These strategies can be
grouped into two broad
(1) increases in the stock of
water resources available for
(2) water demand
Green supply tariffs
• A green supply tariff means that some or all of the electricity
you buy is 'matched' by purchases of renewable energy that
your energy supplier makes on your behalf. These could
come from a variety of renewable energy sources such as
wind farms and hydroelectric power stations.
• Your supplier should let you know what sources are
included in the mixture, and also what proportion of your
supply is renewable.
• Many green tariffs state that your supply is renewable but
they simply assign some of the renewable energy they are
already required to supply to you, while reducing the
amount of renewable energy they provide to other
customers. This does not increase the amount of renewable
in the overall energy mix.
• Some companies will guarantee that a proportion of the
renewable energy they are purchasing (and you are buying)
is 'additional' - it is above and beyond what suppliers are
already required to produce. This creates an additional
incentive to develop new generation capacity and so could
lead to increased renewable generation and reduced carbon
There are no companies offering green tariffs that are 100%
additional renewable supply.

This design uses a photovoltaic panel to
generate energy, stored in batteries, to
power an electrostatic unit that purifies
liquids drawn from a small septic tank.
The unit produces hydrogen as it cleans
the water, potentially a supplementary
source of toilet power on cloudy days or
at night. The unit also purifies the solid
waste which can then be used as bio fuel
or fertilizer. The solar powered
electricity can also be used to supply
