  6. 6. As India is urbanizing at an unprecedented rate, so much that estimates suggest nearly 600 million of Indians will be living in cities by 2030, up from 290 million as reported in the 2001 census.

  9. 9. The ‘Smart City Challenge Competition’ will be carried out by Bloomberg Philanthropes, which has been involved in conducting similar competitions in various countries. According to the plan, 20 cities will be selected this year, followed by 40 each in the next two years. Smart City aspirants will be selected through the competition which intends to link financing with their ability to achieve the mission objectives. What’s the plan?
  10. 10. The cities will be given scores based on urban reforms that they have carried out, their impact and what they propose to do in four key areas – Swachh Bharat (sanitation), Make in India (ease of doing business), good governance (modern accounting system, rationalization of property taxes) and e-governance. While most of the smart cities will be brownfield (old) ventures and will be implemented through an ‘area-based’ approach including retrofitting and redevelopment. There will also be a few Greenfield (new) projects which means setting up of new cities. What’s the plan? (Contd.)
