Facts

Cities accommodate nearly 31% of India's current population and contribute 63% of GDP (Census 2011). Urban areas are expected to house 40% of India's population and contribute 75% of India's GDP by 2030. This requires comprehensive development of physical, institutional, social and economic infrastructure. All are important in improving the quality of life and attracting people and investment, setting in motion a virtuous cycle of growth and development. Development of Smart Cities is a step in that direction.

Smart Cities — An Outline

Under this mission, the GOI plans to invest $7.5 billion across 100 cities over the next four years. The emphasis of development is focussed on providing a sustainable environment for living by enhancing physical infrastructure (information & communication, water, energy, built environment, waste management, mobility) and social infrastructure (health, education and recreational facilities).
