innovative and integrated system not only for India but also for export to the
outside world .
Cities are engines of economic growth, and it is anticipated that 40% of Indias
population will live in cities by 2030. Smart Cities Mission is an urban renewal
and Retrofitting program by the Indian Government with a vision of developing
100 Smart Cities as satellite towns of larger cities and by modernizing the
existing mid-sized cities. According to a report from India's Ministry of Urban
Development, currently 31 percent of the country's population is living in urban
areas and contributes 60 percent of Indias GDP. Thus, smart cities are needed
to strengthen the Indian economy by reducing expenses and increasing
efficiency. New Business models are required in development of
Smart cities and to solve current issues that are effecting the growth of City.
What is a Smart City?
Smartness in a city means different things to different people. It could be smart
design, smart utilities, smart housing, smart mobility, smart technology, etc.
Thus it is rather difficult to give a definition of a smart city. However, people
migrate to cities primarily in search of employment and economic activities
beside better quality of life. Therefore, a smart city for its sustainable needs to
offer economic Environment & Social Sustainability activities and employment
opportunities to a wide section of its residents, regardless of their level of
education , skills or income levels Smart City needs to identify its comparative
or unique advantage and core competence in specific areas of economic
activities and promote such activities aggressively, by developing the required
institutional, physical, social and economic infrastructures for it and attracting
investors and professionals to take up such activities. It also needs to support
the required skill development for such activities in a big way. This would help a
Smart City in developing the required environment for the creation of economic
activities and employment opportunities. Apart from employment, it is also
important for a Smart City to offer decent living options to every resident. This
would mean that it will have to provide a very high quality of life (comparable
with any developed City).

Current Challenges in development Of Smart

Smart skill development
Skills development is the process of identifying your skill gaps, and
developing and honing these skills. It is important because your skills
determine your ability to execute your plans with success. Skill
development is one of the essential ingredients for India's future economic
growth as the country transforms into a diversified and internationally-
competitive economy. Skill development is going to be the defining
element in India's growth story. The government of India has launched
Skill India campaign with an aim to train 400 million people in different
skills by 2022 it include various initiatives like National skill development
mission, National Policy for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship and
Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yogna (PMKVY). Skill development scheme is
getting a good response not only in India but there are some many foreign
countries and multinational brands working in this skill development

Smart IT and Communications

India's share of the global IT industry at 7 percent is largely owing to
exports. India, the fourth largest base for young businesses in the world,
with 3,000 tech start-ups, is estimated to be 11,500 by 2020. The
government of India targets Internet of things (IOT) industry at US$ 15
billion by 2020. IoT offerings are transforming cities by improving
infrastructure, creating more efficient and cost-effective municipal
services, enhancing public transportation, reducing traffic congestion, and
keeping citizens safe and more engaged in the community. There are
some major challenges in India is the Internet connectivity. With a varying
availability of connection across the nation, IoT may not be recognized
equally in urban and rural areas which can hinder the growth of the digital
nation. While IoT brings about new opportunities; at the same time, it
adds multiple layers of complexity. Such a new environment of devices will
add a new dimension for policy makers in emerging economies who will
need to chalk out a new blueprint for IoT related regulatory concerns. The
future lies in interconnected devices but how we manage them will decide
how our Digital future is shaped. There are so many successful initiatives
are using the Internet of Things (IoT) to give solutions to our so many
problems. Some of the successful initiatives are CarIQ Technologies,
RHL Vision Technologies , Swachh Bharat Clean India mobile app,
IPaidABribe.com and Safecity India etc.

Smart Buildings
A smart building can be define as a facility that utilizes advanced
automation and integration to measure, monitor, control, and optimize
operations and maintenance India is expected to emerge as the worlds
3rd largest construction market by 2020 by adding 11.5 million homes
every year. Honeywell Survey states that 2,000 buildings in India need to
invest more in Smart Building Technologies. The objectives of building
smart structures are improved occupant comfort, efficient operation of
building systems. Implementing smart building solutions can make
facilities more connected and adaptive, reduce energy and operating
costs, and improve the safety and quality of life for occupants and users.

Smart Health Infrastructure

India is at the crossroads of an exciting and challenging period in its
history. Making health care affordable and accessible for all its citizens is
one of the key focus areas of the country today. While on the one hand,
India urban area lacks strong healthcare infrastructure, on the other hand,
the country has several inherent weaknesses in its health care system.
The health care delivery segment is dominated by the private sector in
India with 70% of the total delivery market in India catered to by the
private sector. However, most of the organized private infrastructure is
confined to the state capitals or Tier I cities. Very few have made inroads
in Tier II and Tier III cities. This presents the country with both a challenge
and opportunity to not only increase the penetration of quality health
services but also be the growth driver in this region. Service delivery
through telemedicine, high-end tertiary care, community insurance
schemes are some new opportunities where the private sector will need to
participate. Therefore, the need of the hour is to develop a new and smart
business model with the help of your innovative ideas and new improved
healthcare appliances to solve Healthcare issues and challenges in current
under developing smart cities.

Smart Transportation Systems

Ease of being able to move from one place to another is at the core of a
Smart City.
Smart transportation system is advanced applications which, without
embodying intelligence as such, aim to provide innovative services
relating to different modes of transport and traffic management and
enable various users to be better informed and make safer, more
coordinated, and 'smarter' use of transport networks. Our cities are faced
with rapid motorization. This has led to severe congestion, deteriorating
air quality, increasing the incidence of road accidents and a rapidly
increasing energy bill. Walking and cycling have been rendered unsafe
due to poor infrastructure and public transport has been inadequate. So
far, urban transport planning has emphasized providing for the personal
motor vehicle. Public transport systems have been planned in isolation
with the result that a well-integrated multi-modal system has not come
up. This has resulted in high-cost facilities not giving the outcomes that
were sought. Indian transportation system has the lack of quality and
safe public transportation, inadequate capacity of public transportation,
road safety concerns, overcrowded road network, poor traffic
management, parking issues, theft, poor road conditions, lack of modal
options (including pedestrian walkways) remain the key issues in most of
the cities. Most cities also lack the integrated transportation plans leading
to the huge demand-supply gap and poor transportation network. For
transport operators, huge demand-supply gap, under recovery and poor
asset management remain the key issues. As the cities of India are
developing and transforming their structure in new and smart structure.
The new and better transportation systems are needed to make this
growth more sustainable.

Smart tourism
The Indian tourism and hospitality industry has emerged as one of the key
drivers of growth in the services sector in India. The third-largest sub-
segment of the services sector comprising trade, repair services, hotels
and restaurants contributed nearly US$ 187.9 billion or 12.5 per cent to
the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in 2014-15 while growing the fastest at
11.7 percent Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) over the period
2011-12 to 2014-15. Tourism in India has significant potential considering
the rich cultural and historical heritage, variety in ecology, terrains and
places of natural beauty spread across the country. Tourism is also a
potentially large employment generator besides being a significant source
of foreign exchange for the country.
The industry is expected to generate 13.45 million jobs! Across sub-
segments such as Restaurants (10.49 million jobs), Hotels (2.3 million
jobs) and Travel Agents/Tour Operators (0.66 million). The Ministry of
Tourism plans to help the industry meet the increasing demand of skilled
and trained manpower by providing hospitality education to students as
well as certifying and upgrading skills of existing service providers.
Tourism industry needs more better and innovative ideas that will give
every tourist an experience of life time.
