Pimpri Chinchwad Smart City

Smart City Mission

The Smart Cities Mission is a bold new initiative of the Government of India to drive economic growth and improve the quality of life of people by enabling local development and harnessing technology as a means to create smart outcomes for citizens.

As per the mission guidelines, each shortlisted city is required to undertake a ‘smart’ area based development project and a ‘smart’ pan-city project with the funding received from the Government. The area based development project can be based on one or more of the following themes –

  • Retrofitting
  • Redevelopment
  • Greenfield 

A Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) will be formulated for the implementation of the aforementioned projects. The SPV will receive funding from the Central Government, State Government and ULB. The Central Government will contribute a total of Rs.500 crores over 5 years in the form of a tied grant. Further, the SPV will also be allowed to borrow funds from the private sector and utilize other means of funding such as user charges, surcharges, etc. for the purpose of meeting its expenditure needs

Smart Cities Challenge

For the first time, a ‘Challenge’ or ‘Competition’ method is going to be used to select cities for the disbursement of funds

Each of the shortlisted cities are required to prepare a Smart City Proposal (SCP) which will include a vision for the city and the cities proposed smart area based and pan-city projects. Further, the SCP will be evaluated by the Central Government on the basis of credibility, do-ability and citizen engagement. Based on this evaluation, cities will be selected to receive funding.

Pimpri-Chinchwad is participating in the Smart Cities Challenge and the city intends to prepare a proposal which will reflect the needs and aspirations of the citizens. So join us in making Pimpri-Chinchwad a ‘Smart City’
