The Smart City Mission within the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs has launched an ambitious Smart City effort, with about 100 cities selected for a total investment of around two Lakh Crore Rupees. The Smart City projects will be different, with each city investing in the applications and citizen services which are most needed by them. Planning and implementation efforts are in different stages, with the cities expected to be fully operational between 2020 and 2023.
The Centre is currently working on the India Urban Data Exchange (IUDX), a standard mechanism to share, discover and access data from IT systems across heterogenous departments and organisations. IUDX will enable cities to unlock and extract the full potential of the vast amount of data they generate.
