Yes, we really need smart cities because it is really required now if our city became smart we will also grow because nowadays we have seen if we required anything we look for smart cities we all want all things in our life like good education, electricity, Good infrastructure all things we want and this thing can only happen when our city became smart because if any person require higher or good treatment that person first look for smart city I am in favour of smart cities.

Good morning/afternoon to all, this is Rahul Soni.

According to my point of view, we really need smart cities. At present India is not fall under the list of smart cities due to various corruption, lack of Artificial Intelligence, education system etc. Recent survey it is found that India may become a fall under the smart city and increment of 1.5% in GDP by using artificial intelligence at the end of 2030. It also play major role digitization of country like online banking, In Dubai, the driverless car is running on the road.

Yes, we need smart cities but instead of making our city smart first government should focus on the basic needs of the people like our literacy, food, water, home etc. If these requirements will be fulfilled then our people will be very smart to handle the result which will come after making our city smart. First makes the people smart then automatically city will be smart.

Hello friends, my name is Manali. And in my opinion, yes, of course, we need smart cities as India is a developing country. But I think not now, and after 4-5 years. Because before that we should think to developed those areas where people are still leaving on the footpath and alongside to tracks and we should give some contribution to developed those children who sell something in trains or at signals and they not go to schools. When all the people will be enough capacity to live in their own house n when no one will beg to live their life then only we should move to smart cities. Because then only our country is called developed and not when only some part of it is developed.

In my opinion, the people who live in India should be smart, if the people who live in India will become smart the city will automatically become the smart city.

I am not saying that the smart city should not be their in the India all I am saying is if the people of the city are illiterate and not smart to handle the digital gadgets then then there would be no sense of having smart city in India.

Yes, definitely India need smart cities in current word. If India wants to be one of the supreme powerful countries in the field of economy, defence, telecom, space etc it's cities must be developed. Because in such cities all needful things such as education, health facilities are always easily available to their citizen. If people become smart they start contributing in developing smart cities then India came out from the list of developing countries and go together with developed countries.

Hello Everyone,

Smart cities mean those whose cities having the excellent facilities like educational, healthcare facilities, technology. In my point of view, India will really need the smart cities and also this is the right time to think about it. I want to add one thing before going to the topic.

In India, 60-70% of the people are living in rural areas and only 30-40% of the people are living in towns/cities. In rural areas, the people are always fighting to fulfil there common needs like higher education, health facilities. Etc. First of all, Governments will focus on rural areas to facilitate the basic needs to the peoples living in the rural areas.

And also, correspondingly focus on the development of the smart cities. Otherwise, our country is always in the "developing countries" list instead of developing countries. My grandfather said, "India is a developing country" to my father, my father said same to me and I will say the same to my children as well.

So, My point of you sustainable developing is needed.

Yes, we want, but in a smart city, all the comfortable zone things should not be made. Because in early days many peoples worked hard and the hard work made them very strong in their fitness and also it made a happiness to them from their heart. But nowadays many inventions are done to overcome the work and make easier! but the inventions should be made but the whole city should not travel in these inventions itself! they can utilize but, if they can do the same work on their own they won't do on their own and must not use smart inventions.

Yes, we really need a Smart City. But there should not be developing in the urban areas only. The village should be developed.

I will give one example. Suppose I am staying in the village and I want to get higher education but unfortunately I'm not able to go to urban areas because of financial situation. So I think whatever there is in urban areas, it should also be in rural areas. So poor peoples can take advantages. Lastly, I want to say If we want smart city then, first of all, we need to develop our village.

Truly speaking, every one of us would know that there are many other issues which need attention rather than developing a smart city. Nowadays, there are many frauds in banks, corruption, clean Ganga project and many others. In such a scenario we can't be thinking of such things. Yes, indeed the smart city is a good one but maybe we are not at that stage of being developed that we should go for it. Maybe somewhere down the line, we will eventually achieve it but according to me NOT NOW.

Hello guys,

In my point of view, yes, of course, we need a smart city but before this we need smart people. People are like bricks, and if we will use good quality of bricks and cement then building will be strong automatically. People of India are mostly uneducated and they don't have home and a proper school. So I think first, the government should provide a proper school in the village, job, electricity, water etc. When the people will get proper education proper job then the city will be converted into smart city. Government should decrease education rate, they should open a no. Of colleges, school.

Smart cities are very much needed in a country for the overall development of a country. But for that, it is important to optimise the perception of people in that area towards society, humanity, education, and other social issues. More importantly, it is the duty the government to look to the prevailing issues of a particular area like infrastructure facilities of hospitals, schools, colleges, roads, bridges, agricultural farms with farmers, etc. Morover, building a smart city doesn't only refer to better connectivity between people by either roads or internet facility, but also changing the mindset of people living there towards women safety and empowerment.

That is purely my opinion.

Hello everyone.

Smart cities do require smart ideas and smart techniques. People who study in India has to do their jobs in India and should expose their talents here itself. So that we can implement innovative technologies and try to move towards smart. What our government doing is letting the great talents of India to expose their talents in foreign countries and finding success over there. By doing this so how can our country become smart? so I wish our government should not allow the people to move away from the country where they study.

In my opinion, first of all, we educate the people mentally and physically who live in rural areas as well as in urban areas and educate the importance of smart cities. Because many people aware about the smart cities but they don't follow the rules. They throw the wastage and garbage disposal in front of the houses, roads, markets and the public places. Government should provide the counseling system in many places and should also maintain the top rule and regulation to avoid the spreading garbage.

Nowadays government is focusing on smart cities in some specific areas but what about those people who are still waiting for a better standard of living in nearby places. Thought of smart cities will increase the rate of migration toward the cities and it will increase the crowd once again in cities that lead to the same result as we can see in Delhi the highly populated area.

So if we educate the people and learn them in respect of skills and innovative ideas it may bring the new revolution and transformation in rural areas as well as remote areas.

And later we can definitely become part of more powerful country. I hope it will be happened in upcoming time.

Smart cities it's not mean that you know making big buildings attracted big MNC in India it's mean to educate people beacuse we know in India 70% of people who depends in agriculture and its source money so how will say that making smart cities creat people smart we have to look it both side, first of all, provide better skill, give them proper education, we have to train them, govt should have to make group of people who have to visit rural areas give them knowledge about policies of govt so in India there is lot of things to do beacuse the former is a back bone of India.

Hi, All I am Rajesh GD,

I would like to add few more points to your list.

Does India Need more smart cities or More smart peoples? We need to think about it.

No Country has been ever developed by smart cities scheme like our Indian concept.

If The smart peoples exist in the country then surely it will have not only smart cities villages as well.

For that, what action needs to be taken from Govt of India.

Instead of investing much more money in creating smart cities, should invest in free education, Free Medical facilities, Free water and flawless electricity across the Country.

Once the Govt has taken care of these things for underprivileged regions then people will have the smart cities in his own mind itself then they turn all villages and cities into Smart cities.

And also I request in educated peoples in India, Only Govt cannot do all these things we have to joins our hands towards country progress with it.

Change the mind between major dispute, fight for natural resources and has to create the awareness as we are united and one family to live peacefully across the nation.

Yes, I agree with all that smart cities needed in India to show our rich culture to giving the message to the whole world that we are chasing all country to become number one.

Our GDP now it is 2.7 Trillion and the current growth rating is 6.7% soon we will turn from developing county to developed country.

I Hope our beloved and Honorable PM Narendra Modi doing the Best job to create this awareness all over the planet we always thank him and his team.

In our country where people could survive their lives in slum area too due to whatever their personal reasons, government should initiate some activities before making smart cities.
Otherwise, we may lead to see slum areas at the edges of SMART CITIES too.

Also, fares of municipal services may increase and that would hit the pocket of common people only.

Hello everyone.

Of course, we need smart cities and as everyone already said development of the rural area is a major priority in order to make country smart.

I think education has always been a issue which is barrier for success. In rural area people doesn't have basic knowledge of what actually is happening.

For instance, movie "NEWTON" shows poor situation of election in our country. It reveals how people were being manipulated and they were giving votes without even knowing who was going to win.

Just want to say smart cities are required but this cannot be accomplished if people are not educated in their field.

According to me, a smart city is essential but it is a task of years not one or two days. Before to develop our cities there is need to develop our villages. Provide basic facilities such as school, hospital as well as jobs so that villagers do not move or migrate towards cities in search of jobs, which ultimately raise the population of the cities.

According to me, now this time there is not need to build a smart cities but rather than is important to developes a villages and rural areas. The government is be arrange to provide a better education of our children, and provides important things like better power supply, efficient and drinkable water, better roads and transportation facility and all other mendatory facilities.

And after doing this definitely makes a smart cities.

I think the city will be smart if people are smart. Of course, we need smart cities but smart rural areas also. Villages need developments too. Because half of the population lives in the village. Our Government is trying its best to make the country better. It's our duty too to keep our cities or surroundings clean. Firstly We should know how to use any facility in a useful manner. Smart cities are need of the modern world. And hopefully, it is our future.

Hello every one.

My name is amit, our topics is do we really need smart cities, It is need of 20th century.

That our cities should be smart, according to me, Smart cities means not only cleaniness on roads and good transportation facilities etc but also creating discipline among people that smart cities should be maintained like smart. But half of the India s population lives in rural areas they should be developed with thier basic needs first such as 24*7 electricity and water supply and good roods for connectivity.

Hence I conclude by saying that smart cities is need of modern india, with balance on the development of rural areas should not be neglected.

Hey everyone.

I'm Jitender As the topic is Do we really need smart cities, yes ofcourse we need. What smart cites means? It basically means that maintained sewage system, cleanliness on roads, proper railways system and well mannered safety system As we all are live in urban areas but more than 50-60% peoples who live in rural areas where there is a lack of employment, no proper electricity, no water system.

If we really want smart cities, first of all improve the condition of rural peoples, provide 24*7 electricity, water make proper roads and turn villages into cities by providing proper education, and create awareness among the youth.

At last I would like to say that we surely need smart cities, as India is a developing country and from day to day life our economy increases and technology also improves which has a great achievement of our country.

Thank you.

Hello everyone.

Yes, we really need smart cities. Every developed country need smart Cities. It means providing good infrastructure, all facilities like water, 24*7 electricity, hospitals, school.

Government need to take strict action who don't follow traffic rules and throw garbage anywhere. Then only our country will develop. This will also attract more tourist to our country.

This will also create employment in different fields like in communication, architecture, computer etc. It will increase our GDP of our country. Hence improve Indian economy.

Also by providing all facilities people will be happy and satisfied. They will lead better life.

But government should also concentrate on rural area. Government should create awareness about importance of education, creat employment and give training. Also government should improve the condition of rural area.

Developed cities are the backbone of countries development. But it was also true that as the cities are developed the pollution are drastically increases. And we also know that the health is essential for any type of development. As we wish to develop our cities then you should control the pollution too.

Good morning everyone,

In my point of view, yes we do really in a dire need of smart cities.

A smart city is not just about technology evolution and evaluation, but a development as a whole. A smart city is one which inculcates all specific needs, substances that is an aid to human as well as nation fundamentals. Smart city will be an entity, that act on skill development, make in India, digitisation, boost to entrepreneurial skills, environment, culture, tradition, and many more. Smart city as a whole represent the local, regional and national development, and will be the insurmountable success on the international platform.

As per my opinion,

I think Smart cities are the future of our country. But for that first of all we need to improve our rural areas i.e. villages of our country by making 24/7 water supply and power supply.

The smart cities are full-filled by education, health, services and this should be started from villages.

Hi everyone,

I do agree we should develop our village first but providing water power 24/7 will solve the problem. We are a nation with max youth. The biggest challenge now is how we are using our resources. So it's very important to create awareness of the effective use of time.

I strongly agree we need smart cities which has all the specialities and smart ppl with smart works innovations etc which should be role model for surrounding villages to improve.

The idea of smart city sounds and appears to be whimsical. First and foremost we all need to be on the same page about our country's economic status, wealth distribution, and sustainability. We keep telling and hearing that India is a developing country and it is developing since as long as anyone can remember, here we need a pragmatic approach. We should first concentrate on rural areas that are long due to development, we literally have villages that even today have no access to electricity and has little access to water. Such stats resembles our incompetency to do what should have been done decades ago. And yet here we are talking about building smart cities and bullet trains. Our primary focus needs to be on these pressing matters rather than chasing unrealistic goals.

I mean sure smart city comes with boundless benefits, but it benefits only the elites and the people working for elites.

Yes, we do need a smart city. But first, we need to focus on rural areas where development is must for the overall development of the country. Our country has a number of villages which needs to be provided with basic amenities to fulfill their daily needs. Once the villages are upgraded we will surely become a developed nation making all the cities smart and a better place to live in.

Hello everyone,

I agree majorities opinion, In my perspective, smart cities are very much beneficial to a country like India but, we have to consider the other side too there are many people who are all still failed to meet their basic needs. We have to at least ensure that no-one in our country is suffering from hunger. Developing one side to the highest by leaving the other side to the dark is not at all fine in my view. After eradicating poverty we can implement our dream smart city and that will be actually benefiting.

Hello everyone.

Yes we really need smart city. As per my opinions, it is necessary to develop our city. Smart city means what? It means all people get all facilities related to their health, education, environment etc. But now it is not possible only those people who live in the urban area get all these facilities because they have money to get these facilities as per their need. But in rural areas, these all facilities are not provided because they are really poor to get these facilities so they migrate to urban areas for better life. I thought why they need to migrate in urban areas if all facilities provide them in rural areas also so they can also take advantage of it. They have also right to be a part of Smart city but only migration is not the solution there are so many solutions for that like free campaign in rural areas about latest technology how they can use it in their daily life easily, proper schools and colleges built in their areas give children proper education so they also go ahead in their life and make career. Now, India is developing country but after these changes, India will also a developed country so we really need smart cities.

In my opinion, the smart city is a good idea especially for our developing country India. But before that it would be nice to use that money to create employment opportunities in rural areas, providing basic necessities for people, conducting workshops for people in rural areas to help them get aware of the opportunities available for them to grow their business. I think that this is necessary to provide equality for the growth of all areas so that the dream of creating smart city can be achieved without conflict among people.

Well, yesterday's caves are today's buildings. Yesterday's buildings are today's skyscrapers. And yesterday's cities are today's SMART cities. According to me, every city from time to time must be promoted and upgraded to the next level and same should be done with Indian cities. Cities should be clean, stuffed with modern amenities, facilities and technologies. It boosts the mentality of its residents. Moreover, in this tough competition era, if our cities won't be smart, then some cities of other country can OUT SMART our cities thus slowing down our national progress. What do you all say?

In my opinion, we really need smart cities because the main aim of this is to provide housing for all. By 2050 70% people will be living in cities. It can provide good infrastructure, water and sanitation facilities, 24*7 electricity supply etc. It would provide smart solutions such as data public data and treatment of water waste.

No doubt, smart cities will help our country a lot to proceed on the path of becoming a developed nation but setting up of smart cities is not an easy task. It requires huge investment both in terms of time as well as money. Instead, of incurring huge expenditure in establishing smart cities the focus should be on the development of backward regions. Imagine a situation where a large number of people are struggling to afford basic facilities and to find suitable jobs for them and on the other hand the country is focusing on setting up of smart cities.

The reason that India really needs smart cities is that it really lags behind other developed and also developing countries in terms of infrastructure. But one more viewpoint that most of you would agree is that if our viĺages are not even with all round electric and water supply how can we develop our already developed cities further?

See, the govt needs to address both the aspects of the Indian social strata.

As increasing the level of tech of only one of them qill not do.

Instead of investing money to form smart cities, we should rather need to develop villages and provide basic requirements for a healthy living for the people living in those villages. Developing smart cities will abridge the gap between the holistic development of India as a nation. We have to understand that our farmers from whom we get to satisfy our stomach are mostly the residents of the village and thus their development will lead to the development of village as a whole.

And the answer is, look at the other countries Streets, roads, bus stands, railway station and whatever their infrastructure is, they are all neat and clean. Sometimes it seems like now only they are created. It's all because of those countries public, and strict rules regarding cleanliness. Yes, we want smart cities in our country, it attracts tourism, makes our locality a healthy place to live, increase countries image. But along with providing smart cities government should also set some strict fine on those people who throw garbage or spit on the street, there is a need to change the public thought first, it needs to tell them that our country is also our home, country should be always clean like we keep clean our home.

As I read all the opinions of my friends all has covered different points and they are really good to describe this topic I appreciate to all of you as per your given remarks. And speak about this topic so fatly we have to control our population by which we can make the smart cities for everywhere that is beneficial for all. Our population is going to top on daily basis which is not good for our development country and if we have created smart cities that no one takes the benefits of smart cities so do not focus on this focus on population if have controlled population everything we can do our develop the entire country in smart cities by which all can take the benefits of smart cities.

The second thing the old villages there till the time no any growth so our govt has to focus on these to facilities all the thing which they required and provide them of better jobs and education for his better future if they have a good education with good money absolutely villages will be changed into smart cities. As my own experience, I like villages more than cities because the fresh environment is there to good health. Do not go to villages change into smart cities just provide them to all requirements as they need then you will see no one can see that our country need smart cities. That is I want to say.
