Smart city progress from India

India is a country of fast growing industries and multi culture fabric in the Asian subcontinent. Smart city concept as the initiative of Government of India has recently been endorsed for almost twenty from hundred cities. This is clearly a sign of changing modern urbanization and smart city enablement.

A clear mandate of smart city progress has been provided with technology solutions in the recent past. Three cities of Bhubaneswar, Jaipur and Pune have topped the smart city challenge readiness in 2016. These cities scored the highest in the tally for smart city score from various aspects like performance, efficiency, effectiveness, policy formulation, planning and implementation among many others. The cities are now planning for gearing up on technology solutions for sectors like education, transport, water, e-governance, waste, and electricity. The cause is to support and provide the technologies which would enhance quality of life, lower the pressure on provisions, smooth delivery and proper maintenance.

 Over the years many cities of world have been able to gain smart city position whereas the initiative in India is massive in scale and scope. These capable technologies induce better safety, higher output at less cost and maximum capability in operative facilitation. The functions of smart city are being defined to a level only thought of before.

Smart city for Jaipur

Jaipur City is a most famous city in Rajasthan state for its traditional culture. This city is now part of list of 100 Smart City under the Urban Ministry 100 Smart City Mission, which got launched on 21 June 2015. The Municipal Corporation of Jaipur has been urging to the citizens to participate in smart city mission. The progress in city services would be for following sectors:
*      For water
*      For urban transportation
*      For sanitation
*      For housing
*      For health
*      Education
*      Energy
*      Open Spaces

Jaipur City is promising as a ‘Pollution Free Smart City’ with a population of 30, 73,350. The state issued notification for the creation of a special purpose vehicle (SPV) to execute the project. The given SPV can appraise, approve, release funds, manage, operate and evaluate the Smart City development projects. This smart city venture is not entirely a government venture, but would have a partial private stake in the holdings too. The SPV will be a public limited company incorporated under the Companies Act 2013 to implement the smart city project. Financial viability of Jaipur, is third, that is from value of land parcels available in the city. This is focused on benefits to the wider section of people instead of capital intensive projects, that was core strength of their proposal.

Smart City for Bhubaneswar

Smart city enablement is provided with IT products and services which need to employ technologies from where the infrastructure can be improved. In India the smart city projects have been taken up with much fanfare and Bhubaneswar has become the number one in smart cities which are twenty.  

The city has focused with public transport to all of 1 million residents in next 4 years or so with smart traffic management for roads and streets unclogging. Union Urban development minister Venkaih Naidu has said that as the city tops smart city list with 78.83 marks from 100, there is more reliable and quick transport in city evidently. This comes from polls conducted and systematic roll out of 100 buses with provision for 400 in next four years for night services.

Technologically the traffic management is set to get light inter-connectivity, CCTV cameras at junctions, new design guidelines, multi level parking and marketplace in hosting events. There will be 1000 crores of funds coming from center in future for smart city enablement.

Value of smart city designs

Smart city designs like those bringing nurtured designs look good in past few examples and instances only. The use of social media, information marketplaces and the “internet of things” can definitely provide support to city-level objectives such as well being, social mobility, economic growth and infrastructure resilience. This is in no way having a quantitative result or outcome. Design of smart city principles leads us to many valid conclusions. Studying these from investor and planner view it becomes clearer. Technology dependence has proved better in city examples of Portland and Dublin but not so for others.
Principle1. Consider urban life before urban place; consider urban place before technology.
As the rate of change increases in urban cities the people are walking faster.
Principle2. Demonstrate sustainability, scale and resilience over an extended time frame.
Principle3  Demonstrate flexibility over an extended time frame.
Principle4: New or renovated buildings should be built to contain sufficient space for current and anticipated future needs for technology infrastructure
Principle 5: New or renovated buildings should be constructed so as to be as functionally flexible as possible, especially in respect to their access, infrastructure and the configuration of interior space; in order to facilitate future changes in use.

Considering few of the principles one gets to know that the buildings and need for new structures keeps enhancing value of smart cities but in terms individual citizen did not expect. A central tenet of above principles and observations is maintaining data security as well as integrating systems so that there is less vulnerability during hazards, black outs, deficiencies, and most importantly additional demands. Urban communities need to evolve their methods of openness of data and scale of development proposals in best time possible. Changing landscape of smart city also means communities live longer and economic development to support prosperity from converged resources or facilities for bringing any readiness to change mostly temporary. By evolving an overarching set of five to ten principles would be useful for defining an approach to Smarter Cities that could be broadly adopted. Smart city evolution to next generation of reforms cannot be possible from rudimentary and factionalism tidings of government policies, although the resources and means to government action needs private participation on larger scale. In India the process for developing cities has just begun, would it be prosperity or disguised development is the question. All in all the development is sure to happen, the scale and scope are questionable for India and third world developing countries.

Projects of smart city

Smart city solutions are being adopted in cities globally around a rage of sorts. The project is followed vociferously with deemed status in many countries. Following examples would give a glimpse of the stretch of progress made,

1.      Copenhagen is leading green city, has lowest carbon footprints in world, and is in talks with MIT for a smart bike,  
2.      Amsterdam, is a leading smart city, public private partnership based mobility solutions and smart parking to development of home energy storage for integration to smart grid and 40 smart city projects completed.
3.      Vienna has large range of smart city activities, planning department, 100 smart city projects, electric mobility solutions with 440 stations and smart media.
4.      Barcelona is a smart city with e-mobility, bike sharing project with 6000 bikes, sensors for traffic congestion and waste management. Barcelona’s 22@ innovation district is also an impressive mix of smart urban planning and entrepreneurial innovation.  
5.      Paris has Eiffel tower and pioneer in smart city arena. 20,000 bikes network led to decongestion of vehicles, entrepreneurial ecosystem which is 11th best in world.
6.      Stockholm has 40% of land mass dedicated to green space, working on carbon neutrality by 2050, first in commitment to data privacy and security for citizens.
All the above cities in world have been at smart city projects for more than few decades and there has been a lot of growth in the cities becoming modern. The smart city has been professed as a major breakthrough of century and the guidance for this is keenly being assessed. In India the development of projects in smart water, smart electricity, smart transport, smart waste management amongst others has been going in their true nature. Many cities experience better environmental benefits to success in delivering cost effective public service in their countries as research into smart city innovation gets attention and demands. The channel development of smart cities is overall expected to materialize for 40 cities out of 100 which were earlier envisaged. This is so as many cities governance and progress is stalled for funds, management and direction from analysis of field reports. There is need for public private partnership but at the moment there is less opportunity as the design of smart city projects is not readily providing results and takes time. Probably there would be better assimilation of data and resources with cities before venturing into smart city projects for best results in future. The smart city projects application to cities in India is awaited with bated breath.
