Development of ‘Naya Raipur’ as a new capital for the state is the dream project of Chhattisgarh’s CM Raman Singh. In his vision it will be developed as a best modern ‘Smart City’.
The Municipal Corporations of these two cities - Raipur & Bilaspur are already doing well in terms of generating revenues. Both cities already have an existing plan that is valid for the next few years. They also have GIS, online facilities, water supply lines, sewerage systems, draining systems and other utilities enabling the town to efficiently meet the demand of its residents.
Aspirations of Bihar’s cities as Smart would be 24X7 water & electricity supply, sanitation & solid waste management, resourceful city mobility & public transport, IT connectivity, e-governance, counselors with participation of citizens and proper system to guard the residents.
