New Delhi: The final round of smart cities was finally announced and nine cities made the cut. The government on Friday announced the names of the cities that will receive the Centre’s funds under the Smart Cities Mission. 

Although, the Centre was to announce the names of the final ten cities on Friday but one of them, Shillong, could not submit its proposal.

In this Round of the national smart cities challenge, Silvassa from Dadar and Nagar Haveli topped the list, followed by Erode in Tamil Nadu; Diu in Daman and Diu and Bihar Sharif in Bihar.

Other cities who made the cut include three from Uttar Pradesh –Bareilly, Moradabad, Saharanpur, Itanagar in Arunachal Pradesh, and Kavaratti in Lakshwadeep.

These nine cities were selected out of the 15 cities that had submitted their proposals. These included Itanagar (Arunachal Pradesh), Biharsharif  (Bihar), Amravati (Maharashtra), Erode and Dindigul (Tamil Nadu) and Moradabad, Meerut, Sharanpur, Bareilly, Rampur, Rae Bareli and Ghaziabad (Uttar Pradesh), Silvasa (Dadra and Nagar Haveli), Kavaratti (Lakshwadweep) and Diu (Daman and Diu), according to the sources.

Uttar Pradesh that had been given 13 smart city slots, of which it won 10. Senior Congress leader Sonia Gandhi’s constituency Rae Bareilly and Delhi’s next door neighbour Ghaziabad are among the four cities from Uttar Pradesh that have failed to make it to the list of 100 smart cities this time.

Announcing the list of nine cities, housing and urban affairs minister Hardeep S Puri said, “The winning cities have improved the quality of their smart city proposals by 19 percent on an average to become eligible for the selection process. Each city has developed a unique vision and has selected an area based development (ABD) which will be developed as a lighthouse to be replicated by the city.”

The nine selected cities have proposed an investment of Rs 12,824 crore, of which Rs 10,639 crore would be in area-based development (ABD) and Rs 2,185 crore in pan-city initiatives, which would be impacting 35.3 lakh people living in these areas, the minister said.

These nine cities have approximately 409 projects. The breakup for sources of funding for these projects is as follows: Smart City Mission (with contribution from State and Centre) 61.25%, Convergence 24.19%, PPP 12.90%, own sources 1.57%, and other sources 0.09%.

Smart roads, rejuvenation of water bodies, cycle tracks, walking paths, smart classrooms, skill development centres, upgradation of health facilities and Pan City Projects, which include integrated command control centre, and ICT- based municipal services are the main projects on which the cities will focus on.

Meanwhile, with Friday’s announcement, as 99 cities have finally made it to the smart cities list; the total proposed investment in the Smart City Mission would Rs 2.04 lakh crore.

All it takes is of effort and a few hours. Of course, it goes without saying that
lying is not optional in Squidoo. Another approach is to go to one of your
companies providing the full providers.

Popular opinion seems to be that it is best to create vapors in a vaporizer by beginning with low heat
and slowly increasing the heat level. This insures the best combination of active ingredients
along with aromatic vapors. Be aware that the warm air generally
produced by vaporizers can be harsh on the throat and bronchial tubes.
Some designs use a cooling down process that allows water moisture to be included in the vapor
produced. These models enable the user to inhale a cool and
moist vapor that is less harsh and irritating. Just keep
in mind that if water vapor cools too much or is left sitting too
long it will change into condensation.

Superb blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost
on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm totally confused ..
Any recommendations? Appreciate it!
