The union government on Thursday announced a list of 98 cities that will be developed under the Smart Cities mission.
The Centre will provide Rs 48,000 crore in funds for each Smart City so that the states can improve their infrastructure and service delivery through application of better technology and e-governance. The state and urban local bodies have to together provide a matching contribution of Rs 48,000 crore to each city for the five year mission. This is in addition to thousands of crores worth investments from the private sector which they will be allowed to recover through levy of user charges on say water supply or urban transport.
