New tech solutions to drive India’s Smart City Mission

India’s smart city mission, which was launched in 2016, aims to transform 100 cities into smart cities by 2020. Through this initiative, the government aims to tap into emerging technologies, urban planning best practices, and public-private partnerships to promote the holistic development of smart cities.

The 5th Smart Cities India 2019 expo will explore the future and state of the smart city mission. The event will be held from 22 to 24 May in New Delhi.

The expo will provide a platform for comprehensive communication and a more practical approach to solving India’s challenges through technology. It will offer business opportunities for organisations that are working to develop innovative smart technologies.

Stakeholders including union and state government officials, private sector representatives, foreign delegations, businesses, academics, and city leaders will attend the event and solidify professional relationships with each other.

The event will hold conference sessions, panel discussions, and plenary sessions. It will provide opportunities for one-on-one meetings, group discussions, and networking activities.

The main objectives of the smart city mission will be discussed during the expo.

Water and sanitation

Water monitoring: Groundwater can be affected by land use, agricultural practices, pollution, and climate change. The monitoring and treatment of water are essential as public health could be in jeopardy if surface water is contaminated.

Water ATMs: There are 66,093 rural habitations in India where the drinking-water source is contaminated with chemicals, such as arsenic and fluoride. Water ATMs provide safe drinking water sources in urban and rural areas.

Solid waste management: Onsite handling, waste collection, waste transport, waste processing, recovery, and disposal are key solutions to water contamination. Management programs and technologies including smart bins and waste-to-energy techniques are being used by smart cities and municipalities.

Smart IT and communications

Command and Control Centres for cities and municipalities: The command and control systems market is projected to reach US $35 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 4% during the forecast period.

Cloud and open data: The Public Cloud market in India reached about US $658 million in the first half of the financial year 2017. It is estimated that by 2020, over 90% of global enterprises will adopt a multi-cloud platform.

IoT: Smart Cities and Digital India campaigns are driving growth in the IoT sector and its market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 28% during the years 2016-2022.

Safety and security

Security Cameras: The India CCTV Camera market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 27% during the years 2016-2021.

Video intelligence data: India’s video surveillance analytics software market is projected to grow at a CAGR of over 35% during the years 2017-2023.

Smart Transport

A US $500 billion investment is expected through current government policies and missions including projects for highways, rail, metro, air, and seaports. The traffic management market is expected to reach US $16 billion by 2019.


Building Intelligence Monitoring (BIM): Smart Buildings optimise utilisation, support green standards, and control operating costs. The implementation of BIM technologies and workflows in architectural and engineering construction can reduce costs and greenhouse gas emission by nearly 50%.

Green building solutions: Buildings are responsible for a huge share of energy, electricity, water, and materials consumption. The building sector has the greatest potential to deliver significant cuts in emissions at little or no cost. Buildings account for 18% of global emissions today, or the equivalent of 9 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide annually.

Smart Grid

India is projected to invest US $44.9 billion in smart metering, distribution automation, battery storage, and other smart grid market segments over the next decade. This investment will help to reduce the country’s 22% transmission and distribution loss rate.
