Business Today: A Tale of 100 Smart Cities
India wants to build at least a 100 of them as per Prime Minister Narendra Modi's commitment to the nation. It's a monstrous ambition that is fast becoming a social and economic imperative as at least 50 per cent of Indians are set to live in urban areas by 2050, as against just 32 per cent today. India must provide for these 814 million people in cities with minimum disruption and least chaos. The existing cities have failed to do so for lack of focus or planning. There are global examples to look up to. Barcelona, for instance, prides itself in being a liveable city. Its citizens are at the centre of the smart city strategy. "They were trying to protect the quality of life for Barcelona citizens and for tourists who come there. Smell sensors were put in garbage bins - if bins smell, it will impact the tourist, " says Anil Menon, Cisco's President of Smart+Connected Communities and Deputy Chief Globalization Officer.

Business Today: A Tale of 100 Smart Cities
India wants to build at least a 100 of them as per Prime Minister Narendra Modi's commitment to the nation. It's a monstrous ambition that is fast becoming a social and economic imperative as at least 50 per cent of Indians are set to live in urban areas by 2050, as against just 32 per cent today. India must provide for these 814 million people in cities with minimum disruption and least chaos. The existing cities have failed to do so for lack of focus or planning. There are global examples to look up to. Barcelona, for instance, prides itself in being a liveable city. Its citizens are at the centre of the smart city strategy. "They were trying to protect the quality of life for Barcelona citizens and for tourists who come there. Smell sensors were put in garbage bins - if bins smell, it will impact the tourist, " says Anil Menon, Cisco's President of Smart+Connected Communities and Deputy Chief Globalization Officer.
