Budget 2017: What do we need for Smart Cities from Arun Jaitley 1.2.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
The Smart Cities Mission is clearly one of the most prominent initiatives of the Government of India to make its urban citizens experience world class amenities and municipal services. With 60 cities having been selected for upgradation based on the Smart City plans submitted by them, the programme now stands at an important crossroads where timely implementation and demonstration of benefits is key. Can the forthcoming Budget 2017-18 do anything to incentivise quick implementation?

The previous land lease period of 45 years had put a dampener on the realtors and had led to the lease tenders of this land failing four times since May 2014.   The move is expected to add value to several railway plots in the city and also give an impetus to the move by Indian Railway Stations Development Corporation Ltd (IRSDC)—a joint venture company of Ircon International Ltd (IRCON, under Ministry of Railways) and Rail Land Development Authority (RLDA)—to redevelop some of the major stations in the city by leveraging money gained from such land development.
