What is a smart city : A ‘smart city’ is an urban region that is highly advanced in terms of overall infrastructure, sustainable real estate, communications and meet viability. It is a city where information technology is the principal  infrastructure and the basis for providing essential services to residents.

List of 98 cities which will be given funds and other resqusite support to build information aimed at improving living standards.

Majority of the cities have less than a million people makes the work of building smart cities easies.

Need for smart cities in India: In the years to come India will need between 700 and 900 million square meters of new housing space annually that’s an area equivalent to the cities the size of Mumbai.

Water consumption per capital will increase by 4-5 litres a day.

The energy use could double in the coming decade.

In addition , the existing cities would require internal infrasturcture that are equally  critical- land improvement, road and earth works, sewage storm water drainage, flood management, solid waste management, land scalping, street lighting, building works, telecommunication, gas grids, captive power plants and light rail transport 

Without the latest technology, India’s cities will not be able to meet these challenges.

Characteristics  of Smart City:

Information, communication and technology (ICT) enabled governance.

Efficient utilities –energy,water,solid waste and effuents.

Meaningful PPPs for capital creation and to bring professionation.

Safety and security of the people ultilise the city.

Financial sustainability.

Citizen – participate local government.

Sufficient solid capital.

Challenges with respect to creation of smart city in india: The biggest challenges is lack of high speed internet access. The national optical – fibre, now rewared Bharat has been delayed by several years. Mobile operater, still struggling to get 2G voice serviced right, will take were time to offer uninterrupted 3G and 4G.
  
Availibility of private capital : The GIFT (Gujarat International Finance Tec- city) spread over 886 acres, for example,will involve investments to the tune of Rs 78,crore in the next 12 years. While the govterment will fork out a large part,  private investerns may for 20-30 years.

Land acquisition: Most  of these smart cities are being built on land currently owned by villages who may not  be open to change of owership or may want a premiure price. Lack of coordination between various government agencies is the  other area of concern.
