Rajan S Mathews, Director General, COAI speaks about the Smart Cities and the steps being taken towards the same in India by the Government
The top 20 Smart Cities have been identified and the focus is on the state governments as the funds have started being rolled out by the center for the states. Also, the citizens will keenly look up to the initiatives and programmes by the local government in terms of the traffic management, garbage pick up, etc. So, industry will be working along with the local authorities for these initiatives to shape up. This appears to bubble up to the top and the prototypes will be seen soon.
