Criteria for selecting a Smart City - Inputs Needed
Most of you are familiar that India is working on having 100 smart cities across India.
We really appreciate your inputs in helping define what a smart city should have.
Today, we would like to seek your inputs on what should be the selection criteria for selecting a Smart City.
Please see the Ministry's current thought process on the subject here:
We look forward to your inputs!

There is no point in taking Brooms & swiping a patch of ground for big publicity, as long as we see no DUST-BINS across the streets in India including Capital & Metro-Cities.
Small countries like Singapore / Malaysia / Japan / Thailand / Sri-Lanka had installed Litter-Boxes at every 100 ~ 200 meters in every street - decades ago.
We only plan for Crores of Budget every year with well planned Scams in advance for looting public funds with ZERO result of actual implementation --- while SYSTEMS are at deep sleep.
We need immediate implementation of:
* Clearing the existing Garbage Collection Boxes in every town/city within the schedule – with penalty on Officers & all staff for not discharging duty without justified reasons!
* Installing of dust bind in Streets / Vegetable & Fruit Markets / Bus-Stands / Eat-outs / Public Places etc.
Otherwise just a few of us will continue to carry papers & plastics in our pocket till we reach home & look at some kind of news once in blue moon. more
