To boost the infrastructure and development in Indian cities, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi launched the Smart Cities Mission on 25th June to enable better living and drive economic growth in the country.
Smart Cities Mission aims at development of entire urban eco-system of cities covering physical, social, economic and institutional infrastructure. The objective is to enable better living and driving economic growth for the benefit of all sections. This will be implemented through retrofitting (enhancing infrastructure in already built up areas and adopting smart solutions), redevelopment by demolishing already built up areas with fresh layouts for intensive land use and smart solutions, Pan-city projects for the benefit of all citizens like e-governance and appropriate smart solutions. Greenfield projects can be taken up for accommodating people outside existing cities.
