Gandhinagar: The Government is building its first Smart City in Gandhinagar in a bid to accommodate the booming urban population and attract investments towards the project like the one being built on the banks of Sabarmati river.
The Smart city is being called Gujarat International Finance Tec-city(GIFT). It boasts modern underground infrastructure, two office blocks.
The plan is however very well planned with gleaming towers, drinking water on tap, automated waste collection and a dedicated power supply.
The smart cities are being built to satiate the needs of the urban population which is set to rise by more than 400 million to 814 Million by 2050. This kind of mass urbanization has been seen only in China.
