‘Smart cities under JNNURM-II’

India's new cities may soon boast of several smart features like IT-enabled transport and carbon neutral status.

"Under Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission Phase-II, every state will have at least one smart city," urban development minister Kamal Nath said at FICCI's 85th AGM.

He said the new cities, particularly those with population of half a million to one million, will have a host of IT-enabled services, like transport and other utilities.

Nath also mooted creation of a special municipal cadre to ensure that local bodies have dedicated staff to carry out plans specific to the urban areas.
