  • Smart Cities Mission (SCM) is one of the most ambitious programmes of the government for urban renewal and transformation. SCM was a slow starter initially, however its implementation has picked up pace in the past one year. Since its launch in 2015, over 5,100 projects worth about Rs 2 trillion have been identified by the 100 cities. Of these, 65 per cent of the projects have been tendered and 18 per cent have been completed thus far. However, the number of completed projects has seen a quantum jump from 318 as of June 2018 to 933 as of July 2019.
  • The progress on the ground is quite skewed. Over 50 per cent of the projects have been completed in cities located in Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Uttar Pradesh. Overall, cities that have shown considerable progress include Ahmedabad, Bhopal, Varanasi, Nagpur, Surat, Visakhapatnam, Vellore, Tiruppur, Vadodara, and Ranchi.
  • With regard to private participation, the government’s aim was to finance 21 per cent of the SCM’s cost through public-private partnerships (PPPs). However, about 15 per cent of the ongoing projects are being implemented under this model. So far, 65 PPP projects worth Rs 20 billion in 26 cities have been completed.
  • Significant progress has been made with respect to the development of integrated command and control centres, smart roads, smart water, solar rooftops, and vibrant public spaces. In recent times, housing has also emerged as one of the fastest moving sectors.
  • While it is widely accepted, that the SCM will go a long way in developing core infrastructure services in India’s urban centres, some critical issues have hampered the execution of the mission.
  • Cities spent a lot of time in setting up special purpose vehicles and finding the right management consultants. The slow pace of implementation is also attributable to the long project planning process, which on average takes about 15-18 months. Moreover, since majority of the smart cities have to emanate from the existing cities, retrofittment of legacy infrastructure is a key challenge as well.
  • On the front of financing, most of the ULBs are struggling to generate funds. This is expected to be addressed through funding from municipal bonds, value capture financing, tailored bonds, user charges and increased private participation. The success of Pune, Greater Hyderabad, Bhopal, Amravati, Ahmedabad, and Indore municipal bond issuances indicates an appetite for financing well-managed municipal bodies.
  • That said, the government’s continued focus on the mission has lent confidence to various stakeholders. It is hoped that with the government focusing on measures to attract private investment as well as with enhanced implementation experience, the progress in the next two to three years will be tangible. There project, therefore, offers ample opportunity for project developers, financiers and technology and equipment providers.
  • The mission of this conference is to highlight the emerging opportunities, discuss the role of data driven governance and automation, examine the key issues and challenges, and showcase the most noteworthy projects and successful case studies. The conference will also provide a platform to industry players, government officials and technology providers to share their experience and exchange ideas.
