Traditionally, the butterfly is a symbol of change, joy and colour. It’s considered a harbinger of transformation. Change or transformation ensures growth. A butterfly represents the unending cycle of life, and the clarity of goal before self-transformation. It makes us realize that ideas have a chance to flourish on a higher level when one decides to go beyond all possibilities. That is the force of creation - the only constant is that we are always changing. The Smart city Mission is making opportunities for this change to take place. And the Pixel Butterfly is taken as an inspiration to bring out the speed and vivacity of Smart Cities. The word ‘transform-nation’ is inspired from the need for constant evolution. It shows how our Smart Cities are beacons that will lead the way for others and have the power to transform the whole country. It represents the ability to provide a whole new way of living and new possibilities to millions of people. For Smart Cities that are always evolving, always improving.
See purpose in para. 2.6 and paras. 2.1 and 2.2 for definition of Smart City. Hon’ble PM during the Launch called it ‘Poorna’ development or what in urban planning is called holistic development. Smart Cities are two steps ahead of citizen needs and are a way of addressing citizens needs collectively based on Maslow’s hierarchy of individual needs. The key features are use of technology to improve services and infrastructure and nature friendly Area development (Place-making).
See para.2.3 & 2.6 The Smart Cities Mission and the AMRUT are interlinked. In his address to the Joint Session of Parliament on 23rd February 2015, the Hon’ble President had stated that “Cities are the engines of economic growth. My Government is committed to building modern amenities and infrastructure in our urban areas. The National Urban Development Mission is being finalized, particularly focusing on water and solid waste management infrastructure. After extensive stakeholder consultations, the Smart City programme is close to finalization. These two programmes are interlinked and will prepare our nation for an increasingly urban future.” Basic infrastructure through interlinking; Quality of life by enabling local area development and applying Smart Solutions to make services and infrastructure better; Liveability by creating exemplars which can be replicated in the same or other cities
Annexure 3 of AMRUT Guidelines for examples
Para. 3.1 In India we have mixing of uses, not mixed use and the challenge is to retrofit to make it more planned using principles of New Urbanism, Neo-traditional development, etc based on post modern principles.
Para. 7 Bottom-up planning or what UDM calls from ‘galli’ to Delhi. No prescriptions and the challenge brings this out. The city’s Vision is what the City will be in 5-10 years.
Para. 9.1.1(shortlisting) Para. 8 (how many in each State/UT) & Annexure 2 Annexure 3; Form 1
Para. 6.1 (essential elements - no-one-size-fits-all) Para. 14 (convergence) Para. 5.2 (contain) The Challenge is a platform for strategic planning – people work from a vision for the future, rather be limited by legislation of Master Plans. Move away from compliance-based incremental changes, starting with a big vision of what the city needs, coming up with city needs and strategic project. Support the vision and plan with strong processes to achieve sustainable change.
Para. 6.2 (essential elements). During the Launch the PM said that the water can be reused for agriculture in the peri-urban areas of the Smart City. Similarly, the garbage can provide compost for the hinterland agriculture. This develops a symbiotic relationship between the city and its hinterlands.
Para. 9.1.2 and Annexure 4 Citizen consultation leads to gathering thoughts and ideas towards defining Smart Cities. Innovative approaches and how they can be implemented. Key stakeholders are involved quite early in planning and see themselves as ready partners in the process of city-building – desired changes are envisioned from the start.

Smart city presentation
The Smart Cities Mission
What is a Smart City?
A Smart City has-
uses ‘smart’ solutions to make
infrastructure and services better, and
relies on Area based development.
Provide basic infrastructure.
Quality of life.
Clean and sustainable environment.
Apply Smart Solutions.
Set examples to be replicated both within
and outside the Smart City and catalyze
the creation of similar Smart Cities.
Smart Cities Mission Strategy
Pan-city initiative in which at least one Smart
Solution is applied city-wide.
Develop Areas step-by-step – three models of
area-based developments –
What is basic infrastructure?
Basic public infrastructure is built by dovetailing
and synergizing with other Missions and Schemes
Basic infrastructure includes,
Assured water & electricity supply,
Sanitation & Solid Waste Management,
Efficient urban mobility & public transport,
Robust IT connectivity,
e-governance & citizen participation,
Safety & security of citizens,
Health & Education and
Economic Activities & Livelihood Opportunities.
City wide Smart Solutions
ts to make
What are ‘smart solutions’
Smart solutions are application of IT&C to
municipal services and infrastructure to make
Smart water meters and billing systems,
Remotely controlled automatic distribution valves,
Real time, online systems of monitoring water
City-wide intelligent video surveillance network,
Using mobile phones for cyber tour of worksites,
Area based Development Models
Development of an existing built area greater than 500 acres so as to achieve
the objective of smart cities mission to make it more efficient and livable e.g.
Local Area Development (Ahmedabad)
Replace existing built environment in an area of more than 50 acres and enable
co-creation of a new layout, especially enhanced infrastructure, mixed land use
and increased density e.g. Bhendi Bazar, Mumbai
Develop a previously vacant area of more than 250 acres using innovative
planning, plan financing and plan implementation tools with provision for
affordable housing, especially for the poor e.g. New Town, Kolkotta, Naya
Raipur, GIFT City.
Components of area-based
Holistic development of existing and new areas.
One area catalyzes the development of other areas,
Sets an example for other cities.
Quality of life in Areas meets citizens expectations
Planned mixed land use,
Housing, especially for the poor,
Walkable localities – accessibility to parks, public
Preservation and development of open space,
Public transport, last mile connectivity,
Governance is citizen friendly and cost effective.
Smart City selection Process
The city selection process is based on the idea of
Cooperative and Competitive Federalism.
Cities are diverse - Each city has to construct its idea
and vision of a smart city that is aligned to its local
The city selection process follows a Challenge method
- two stages, in conjunct, to select cities.
Stage – I : Intra-State city selection on objective
criteria to identify cities to compete in stage-II.
Stage – II: All India competition to select smart
cities for multiple rounds of selection.
Stage-I Competition (within
Number of potential Smart Cities will be
intimated to each State, based on an
equitable & objective based formula.
An intra-state competition to select proposed
Smart Cities, based on the Stage – I criteria
The selected cities will be called the short
listed Smart Cities.
Proposal of Stage 2
No particular model prescribed – each city
has to develop its own idea of a smart city,
vision, and submit a Smart City Proposal
(SCP) during the All India competition.
Proposal format is given in the Toolkit,
The Proposal by the short listed city has to,
Contain a retrofitting or redevelopment or
greenfield or a mix thereof plus a Pan-city
feature with Smart Solution(s),
Area based developments should include some
Area based Development –
