Modi’s Top 100 Smart Cities in India – Proposed State wise cities list


The prime minister of India Narendra Modi has announced creating 100 smart cities in the country with Delhi and Mumbai corridor placed first in the list. One such example is a proposed Gujarat International Finance Tec-City, in Gujarat, India. This is because of the research revealing relocation of 300 mn i.e., 50% of nation’s population dwelling into urban areas for livelihood at nearby cities compared 32% in 2011, 28% in 2001, 17% in 1991. This will bring many ‘satellite townships’ across major cities.

The new city Dholera is getting funded by the central & state governments which is also a Japanese contribution The “Living Lab”, cameras & sensors will be equipped along with a broadband and WiFI network to collect info on traffic patterns, parking & security circumstances, water, power usage. Some countries like South Korea, the United Arab Emirates, & China projected an $8 billion investment to make smart city.

There are even twin cities among top 100 cities in India to be created. The 100-city will feature solar panels, automated garbage collection, and water treatment & recycling plants.Few Smart Cities are Lavasa, Auroville & Pallava are not for for lower or middle-class income groups as it is for upper middle class. India’s development is city-centric as big number of people migrate to the fast-developing cities thus “The pace of migration from the rural areas to the cities is maximizing and a neo-middle class is developing for better living standards.

Therefore a new cities should be developed to accommodate the increasing number of livelihood people The smart cities will bring real estate business back to its good margin industry. The real estate sector will get boosted well once PM Narendra permits the smart cities order. The developing new cities will urbanize inhabitants

Comments on Top 100 Cities by popular political leaders

  • Joshi – “A lot of other cities in India are struggling with infrastructure projects,” Joshi said.
  • Modi – “Cities in the past were built on riverbanks,”. They are now built along highways. But in the future, they will be built based on availability of optical fiber networks and next-generation infrastructure.”
  • Rutul Joshi – “Having a stable roof over every head, public transportation running on every road, a toilet in every house — I would say that is the smartest city ever,”. “We have to redefine what is smartness.”
  • Shanmugam – “PM talked about ports and port management, skill development, building of smart cities, rejuvenation of India’s rivers and water solutions. In terms of technology and experience in water solutions, we will share whatever we have,”
  • Ramakant Jha – “The cost of operation will be much cheaper than any other place in India,”
  • Shah – “The infrastructure given to this city will be world-class,”.
  • Rahul Sharma – “We can already anticipate the problems that these cities face and attack them at the source,”


Our PM Narendra Modi is known for making  big dreams Now he has dreamed even bigger, building 100 smart cities in India connecting across the cities in next 10 years. Is it realistically possible to achieve?

  • Dhanush (not the actor)

    Good Initiative to make Indian cities smart. Its more important to use latest technology (like WIRELESS POWER TRANSMISSION tech) to speed up high speed Rail/ Electric Road Infrastructure to transmit power and also use expandable solar panels for future needs, when new solar panels with more capacity comes into market. Ideally every city should utilise 50% of its energy needs from Solar / Wireless Electric power

  • ChennaiBala

    Great Post on India’s smart cities list. One important aspect of Smart cities is the leverage of latest technology especially in energy and manufacturing sectors, in achieving the smart cities ambitious goals. State government’s should make compulsory usage of “plug and play” renewable energy solutions for citizens at subsidiary like home rooftop solar kits, WIRELESS POWERED high speed monorail / metro rails, proactive e-Governance services like “Single smart card” for all utility services and all modes of transport, are just some of them, for developing long term sustainable communities and villages. Hope India raises up to the occasion to eradicate poverty through “Prosperity for All” initiative.

  • raj singh

    I am not at all satisatisfied with this allocation, because there are so many cities which needs to be under smart cities., there should be atleast one city to be consider from all the states, but look they have chosen only few states. Wot about chhattisgarh .? Any comments…

  • Sheikh Nazir Ahmad

    This is Modi ji’s great idea to develop 100 future smart cities in India. I hope this project leads our country as a modern developed country. Unfortunately from Jammu and kashmir no any city has included in proposed list.Is this not a deliberate indiscrimination.

  • waqqar ahmad

    Why not noida

    • shailesh

      Smart city me gorakhpur ka name kyo nahi hai ye bahut dukh ki bat hai ki modi ji ne gorakhpur jaise city ko andekha kar diye

      • anuj das

        Shailesh ji Ye Bjp walo ne gkp ko for granted le lia hai. Ye sochte hain k gkp me to hamesha hum hi jeet te hai to chhodo kya karna h waha concentrate karo jaha apni paith banani h. Rahi bat gkp walo ki to unhe b koi matlat nai h aur isi liye koi awaj nai uthi.

        • Himmat Singh

          Hamare gorakhpur ke neta log jinpe janta itna viswas karti hai aur hamesa jitati hai unhe sharm karna chahiye ki unki party ki government hote hue bhi apne city ka naam nahi laa paaye.
          Agar aise hi gorakhpur ki andekhi hoti rahi to netao ko ye sochana padega ki janta ko apna neta badlne me der nahi lagti hai.

      • anuj das

        Even aiims bhi jo k gorakhpur me kholna chahiye tha jaha sabse jyade jarurat thi because har year encephalitis se saikado masum bachche marte hain aur Ye silsila pichle 10 salo se chala aa rha h. Even Bihar k log b medical k liye gkp aate hain aur Bjp ka gaddh hone k bawjud aiims banaras me kholne ka plan k because modi ji waha k mp hain. LOL. As usual taken for granted.

  • mahesh

Plz do something for Odisha….

    There was a World Bank Project sanctioned on 21st July 2011 with Project ID 099979 aimed at capacity building of about 36 urban local bodies. The project is yet to start. The World Bank Review Report No ISR 15896 dated 25th Sept 2014 says that the progress is Unsatisfactory and if no action is taken within 6 months the project is likely to be discontinued. Is the PMO/ Minister in charge aware of this?. Why not go ahead with this World Bank on priority?

  • Bikram Sahoo

Modi ji pehle India k us bade tabke jiski aprx population h 1.6 million jinhe sirf ek waqt ka khana milta h unke liye khane ka bando bast kijiye. Basic suvidhayen jese Bijli, Pani or sadak pehle wo logo ko muhaiyya karaiye. Itna kaene k baad phir smart cities k sapney dikhana logo ko.

    It’s really disappointing not to find a single city of Chhattisgarh, a state where BJP is ruling since last 15 years and on….. Surprised that not even Raipur, state capital didn’t find a place in the 100 cities. This city is rapidly growing one, which has Indian Education hub(IIM, IIIT, NIT and all). This is a shame for the CG goverment and a big failure for CG.

    Why no cities of Western UP??

    Agra, Mathura has its image on world level. These cities has to be world class among all 100 cities plan. But these has been excluded. Seems like this list has been prepared with collaboration of “Looteri Sarkar which is known as Samajwadi Party” Which will always focus on eastern UP.

    Damn Fool Idea of Excluding potential cities…
