Shimla - a small hill city with huge tourist footfalls - aspires to become a world-class tourist destination. To achieve this, the city must deal with its infrastructural challenges like solving its water scarcity, tackle its vehicular congestion problem and most importantly make its dilapidating buildings safe and continue attracting more tourists. Instead of following the conventional short-term problem-specific piecemeal approach – the city plans to use the Smart City Challenge to propose a large-scale urban redevelopment, water-resilience and mobility-improvement program.

The Smart city plan envisions Shimla to be “Resilient Global Tourism Destination” that anchors itself on its cultural, historic & natural assets, while ensuring a livable, inclusive, sustainable & flexible environment for improved quality of life of its citizens.

The key strategic directional propositions that have guided the city to set its vision & goals on basis on detail city profiling & citizen engagement are as follows:

1. Improve city’s resilience index across all four dimensions i.e. Health & wellbeing, Economy & society, Infrastructure & environment and Leadership & strategy.
2. Anchor and restore the city’s historic & natural assets.
3. Leverage city’s strength & weakness to create assets & opportunities.

We have finalized and submitted Shimla-Smart city proposal for this round and uploading the same for public discussions/comments.

Hope this reaches2Government.The IT need to innovate a lot here.#arts&culture "we must take steps to promote and patent our Yoga practices&spiritual meditation methods and teachings&astrology.TKDL is poorly maintained&most of links do not open,no option to write them email.Youtube is filled with videos&channels by foreigners but rarely Indians,fear there would be an attempt to patent and world mindset to forget it was gift from Vedic Science.Efforts needed from ministry of culture to save it.
