The much awaited announcement of cities to be developed as ‘Smart City’ in the first phase is likely to be done on 26th January, 2016. A lot of curiosity as well as anxiety has gripped the citizens of Nagpur and the NMC officials as they are expecting their Orange City to figure in the list.

The Central Government had announced development of 100 cities across the country as ‘Smart Cities.’ The names included Nagpur, Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, Amravati, Pune, Thane, Kalyan-Dombivali, Nashik, Aurangabad, and Solapur in Maharashtra. The Central Government had issued guiding principles for the cities to be included as ‘Smart Cities.’ The Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC), striving hard for the past four months, prepared a ‘Smart City’ proposal with the help of the ‘Delivering Change Foundation.’ The NMC sought suggestions and opinions over the concept of a ‘Smart City’ directly from citizens as well as experts by launching a campaign.

The campaign received an overwhelming response as over 3.5 lakh citizens participated. Subsequently, based on the ideas and opinions of more than 2.5 lakh citizens, the NMC prepared the ‘Smart City’ proposal. The civic body submitted the Rs 3,351 crore proposal to the Central Government even before deadline which was 15th December, 2015.

Now, the wait is for the announcement of cities to be included in the ‘Smart City’ project in the first phase. The citizens of Nagpur as well as the NMC are banking on the Orange City’s geographical position, political willpower and an immense opportunity for development as the positive aspects to figure this city in the prestigious list.
