ICT is crucial to development of smart cities: Schneider Electric

Schneider Electric India cited a India Infrastructure Research report titled, ‘ICT in Urban Governance – Survey’, to take real-time stock of ICT adoption in various cities, its importance as perceived by city administrations and as reflected in allocated budgets and actual spends. If the NDA government’s vision of 100 smart cities is to become a reality, the relevant data will be invaluable for central and state governments. Schneider Electric believes ICT deployment is crucial to convert existing cities into Smart Cities.

From hundreds of eligible cities, the first most likely 53 have been surveyed initially out of the 100 brownfield cities that would be on the government’s agenda for conversion into Smart Cities.

Schneider Electric India President and Country Head Anil Chaudhry says, ‘Successful implementation by other cities should, however, inspire the laggards to opt for faster adoption of ICT solutions, which will play a key role in existing cities as well as in creating greenfield Smart Cities.’
