The Tourism Capital of Maharashtra seeks citizen cooperation to become a Smart City

The ambitious Smart Cities project of the Government of India envisions 100 sustainable, eco-friendly, technologically-advanced urban settlements that would provide citizens with a high standard of living, better governance, quality infrastructure, and uninterrupted utility and social services.

Information and communication technology, intelligent transport systems, centralised service controls, optimised energy management and effective emergency systems are some of the smart solutions that would be implemented in these cities.

Aurangabad is a worthy contender in the India Smart Cities Challenge - a social competition that will determine the cities that will be selected for development under the Smart Cities project. The contest invites local administrations, groups and citizens to envision their city of the future, identify areas of improvement and propose effective solutions to achieve their dream.

Tourism

Established in 1610 and named after the Mughal emperor Aurangzeb, the historical city of Aurangabad houses the Ajanta Caves and Ellora Caves (UNESCO World Heritage Sites) and the famous Dakkhani Taj (Bibi Ka Maqbara), among many other tourist attractions. An ancient trade centre, now an emerging IT and manufacturing hub, this metro is an ideal candidate for the Smart Cities project. If selected, Aurangabad will receive substantial government funding in terms of finance and resources to realise some of the best and most effective ideas and solutions proposed by citizens and group entities. This would lead to a more modern and comfortable life in a better, safer, greener home for the city's residents.
