smart cities are mentioned eyebrows are often raised What’s this idea and what is “smart” about a city What is the scheme That’s a bit odd because the concept note on smart cities has been on the ministry of urban development’s website since December 2014 India’s urban population is low and the process of urbanisation has been slow compared with not just developed countries but also several developing ones In Census 2011 the “urban” share of the population was 3116 per cent up from 2781 per cent in 2001 There is a reason that I put “urban” in quotes There is a census definition of “urban” and it may not always conform with our general ideas of what “urban” means This isn’t a problem that is peculiar to India Specifically a habitation is urban if it possesses a municipality a corporation a cantonment board or a notified town area committee These are statutorily defined towns However a habitation is also urban if it has a population that is more than 5000 at least 75 per cent of male workers are engaged in non-agricultural pursuits and the population density is at least 400 per square kilometre These are census towns In the case of statutory towns one knows who is responsible for urban governance and the delivery of services In the case of census towns you don’t know They have crossed the threshold of villages/ panchayats but haven’t yet obtained statutory status typically because of time lags That’s no man’s land The chaotic development one witnesses around towns/ cities is often because of this no man’s land phenomenon Compared to earlier decades India’s urbanisation has increased as indeed it should Urbanisation is correlated with economic development There are positive externalities through network effects even in labour markets That’s the reason people migrate to urban areas But India’s pattern of urbanisation between 2001 and 2011 desirable though it is needs flagging The number of towns increased from 5161 to 7935 But the number of statutory towns only grew from 3799 to 4041 an increase of 242 In contrast the number of census towns grew from 1362 to 3894 an increase of 2532 Hence the governance issue Initially in 2014 there was an idea of developing 100 smart cities To that has now been added an Urban Renewal Mission in 500 habitations Both spliced with the former Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission But what’s the definition of “smart” This quote is lifted straight from the concept note: “This would mean that it will have to provide… good quality but affordable housing cost-efficient physical social and institutional infrastructure such as adequate and quality water supply sanitation 24X7 electric supply clean air quality education cost-efficient healthcare dependable security entertainment sports robust and high-speed interconnectivity fast and efficient urban mobility” While that’s a long list the key is clearly physical infrastructure especially public transport and transport-related infrastructure Add to that utilities like electricity water supply sanitation solid waste management and drainage If these materialise the rest will probably inevitably follow Which are these 100 smart cities I think the concept note is clear enough One satellite city from each of the cities with a population of four million or more (a total of nine); most cities with a population ranging between one and four million (35 out of 44); all state/ Union territory capitals with a population that is less than one million (17); cities of tourist religious and other importance (10); and cities with a population of between 02 and one million (25) More accurately this isn’t a list of whether a specific city qualifies for that category of 100 cities It’s more an indication of what kind of coverage that basket is likely to have I think the implicit intention was not to duplicate cities covered under the JNNURM By the way as with the JNNURM several conditions have to be satisfied before a city can be included in the 100 smart cities or 500 habitations Even under the JNNURM barring Gujarat Telangana Andhra Pradesh Maharashtra Madhya Pradesh Odisha and Uttar Pradesh compliance with the conditions was rather tardy Once the states realise that the smart city isn’t a kitty that promises Union government funds I am not sure how many takers there will be Central government support is through viability gap funding primarily for physical infrastructure and e-governance The rest will come from private investment and public-private partnerships with only a little support for initial investments Not all of the 100 smart cities or 500 habitations will be greenfield projects though greenfield planning is always easier Along that greenfield path and along the Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor we will soon (probably by 2019) have smart cities in Dholera Shendra-Bidkin Greater Noida Ujjain and Gurgaon However the 100 smart cities and 500 habitations will include some brownfield projects: converting an entire existing city into a smart city (probably unlikely and difficult) and carving out a greenfield smart section from an existing city (probably more likely) I suspect the greenfield/ brownfield catch is elsewhere Under Article 243Q of the Constitution there must be a municipal council for a smaller urban area unless the governor provides an exemption through public notification That was the clause used for those new greenfield cities to have governance structures independent of the elected one probably the reason that those cities took off It will be a welcome change if the states decentralise sufficiently to urban local bodies (ULBs) and ULBs possess sufficient farsightedness to push for smartness even if only in a few enclaves of existing cities Therefore rather perversely census towns are a strength not a weakness That’s where the satellite-mode of smartness might indeed take off Since they don’t possess elected representatives yet there are no vested interests Like Dholera and the other four one only needs to figure out vehicles (special purpose vehicles or otherwise) for undertaking reform We will soon know how interested the states are The
