    Smart Cities Mission is an urban renewal and retrofitting program by the Government of India with a mission to develop 100 cities (the target has been revised to 109 cities) all over the country making them citizen friendly and sustainable. The Union Ministry of Urban Development is responsible for implementing the mission in collaboration with the state governments of the respective cities. The Government of India under the Hon'ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has a vision of developing 100 smart cities as satellite towns of larger cities by modernizing the existing mid-sized cities.

    Smart Cities Awas Yojna Mission was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in June 2015. A total of ₹980 billion (US$15 billion) has been approved by the Indian Cabinet for development of 100 smart cities and rejuvenation of 500 others. ₹48,000 crore (US$7.1 billion) for the Smart Cities mission and a total funding of ₹50,000 crore(US$7.4 billion) for the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) has been approved by the Cabinet.

    In the 2014 Union budget of India, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley allocated ₹7,016 crore (US$1.0 billion) for the 150 smart cities. However, only ₹9.24 billion (US$140 million) could be spent out of the allocated amount till February 2015. Hence, the 2015 Union budget of India allocated only ₹1.43 billion (US$21 million) for the project.

    First batch of 20 cities selected in the second stage of competition will be provided with central assistance of ₹2 billion (US$30 million) each during this financial year followed by ₹1 billion (US$15 million) per year during the next three years. The remaining money has to come from the states, urban bodies and the consortium that they form with corporate entities. Also, 10 per cent of budget allocation will be given to states / union territories as incentive based on achievement of reforms during the previous year.

    Urban Development Ministry had earlier released ₹2 crore (US$300,000) each to mission cities for preparation of Smart City Plans.

    My ancestral city Bihar Sharif too is in the list , if they just manage the roads and cleanliness , it would be a wonderful place.And yes , something about mosquitoes , one reason I dislike it.

    My present city Ranchi is too in the list. Here too, roads and law and order. And a light metro if possible.

    I hope 5 years down the line , changes become visible. Best of luck !

    Modi's Dream Project - Dholera Smart City
    This project looks like a sci-fi city of the future! Check out the video below.

    Dholera SIR is among the eight industrial regions planned in the first phase of the DMIC project.

    The entire project covers an area of approximately 920 sq km and is a node strategically located near the industrial cities of Vadodara, Ahmedabad, Rajkot, Surat and Bhavnagar.

    Since the entire trunk infrastructure cannot be implemented in one go, a phased approach has been adopted for the project and an Activation Area of 22.5 sq km has been identified which would act as catalyst for further investments and will provide a base for taking up development of the remaining area.
    Monthly review meetings are being conducted at the highest level to ensure that the project issues are proactively addressed and the project completed ahead of schedule.
