India spent Rs. 4.82 lakh crores on imports to fulfill domestic need. in 2015-16. True. Why? Because of urban population is more than 40,000 heads / km2. My studies revealed that less than 15,000 population the fuel consumption is 35 % less compare to population having more than 40,000 heads / km2. By this India can save at least Rs. 1.25 lakhs crores + reduction of emitting green house gases. Smart villages better than smart cities. Dr. D. Lakshmanan Ex Principal Scientist. CSIR-CLRI, Chennai
