The objective of the Smart Cities Mission is to promote cities that provide core infrastructure, give a decent quality of life to their citizens and apply smart solutions to improve services and infrastructure.

What is ICCC ?

The Integrated Command and Control Centres are envisaged to be the brain for cityoperation, exception handling, and disaster management. The sensors and edge deviceswill capture and generate real time data from various utilities such as water, wastemanagement, energy, mobility, the built environment, education, healthcare and safety.

ICCC as a platform through its different layers and components will act as a decision support system (DSS) for the city administration to respond to the real-time events by consuming data feeds from different data sources and by processing information out of the data sets.

What are its uses:

Increasing the situational awareness by providing insights using data for civic

officials across urban functions through the deployment of sensors across the city.

Standardizing response protocol at the city level through the institutionalization of standard processes for recurring events, issues and exigency scenarios.

Enhancing collaboration across multiple departments within and outside urban local bodies and government bodies.

Engaging with on-field support staff to address civic issues and citizen grievances.


The main objective of the project is to break silos in the city within the departments and across the departments. Also to install appropriate checkpoints for solutions implemented, so that the services delivered to the public are to the at most satisfaction of public.

It is integrated with various IT systems of different stakeholders with the objective of enhancing safety, security and providing better public services in the cities and it helps in :

Bharat Electronics Limited System Integrator is developing a City Operations Centre as Integrated Smart City System for Belagavi at Vishveshvaraiya Nagar.

The CoC is ready for a pilot run of phase I for Smart Solid Waste Management, Emergency Services, Smart Intelligent transportation System and after UAT will Go Live

After establishing the above-said solutions, the SI will Operate and Maintain the said ICT interventions for a period of 5 years.
