Smart City myths and misconceptions

Belagavi is not a smart City yet.
Belagavi has been selected as one of the 98 cities from the country which will now compete with each other to get into the top 20 cities which will be selected for 2015-16.
The government is not prescribing any particular model for smart cities. Each city has to formulate its own concept, vision, mission and plan
In December 2015 -A small number of cities – those with exceptional proposals – are named winners. The next 20 or so best cities continue in the competition with another chance to win. Remaining cities will have the chance to compete in the next competition cycle.
DECEMBER 2015 – FEBRUARY 2016 – short-listed cities participate in a robust innovation and implementation planning program designed to strengthen and refine their proposals.
March 2016 – Winners announced. This year 20 cities, next year 20 and so on.
Winning cities are announced. They receive funds from the Ministry of Urban Development to bring their proposals to life. Cities that don’t win funding will have the chance to compete again in the next competition cycle.
A Special Purpose Vehicle will be created for each city to implement Smart City action plan.
Central funding of Rs 100 crore each year for 5 years when selected in Smart city
So Be Cool, BGM is currently compete ting with 98 other cities and we just wish it All the Best!…
