“The Smart Cities Mission is a bold new initiative by the Government of India to drive economic growth and improve the quality of life of people by enabling local development and harnessing technology as a means to create smart outcomes for citizens.The Mission Statement and Guidelines acknowledge that there is ‘no universally accepted definition of a Smart City’. Each city is expected to craft its own vision, goals, and sub-goals of a ‘smart city’ that emerges from a citizen-driven planning process. “Smart Cities focus on their most pressing needs and on the greatest opportunities to improve lives. They tap a range of approaches – digital and information technologies, urban planning best practices, public-private partnerships, and policy change – to make a difference. Stage 1 commenced on August 27, 2015, with a short listing of 98 cities. In the second stage of the competition, each of the shortlisted Smart Cities prepares their Smart City Proposals for participation in the ‘City Challenge’. The Challenge is designed to inspire greater creativity from municipal officials and their partners, more involvement and inspiration from citizens, and the development of proposals that will produce concrete benefits in people’s lives.
