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.

First things first, make every road one way and laws are implemented strictly. Police do their duty and then clean up the city. Install stop signs , traffic lights and CCDs. These are all can be achieved easily. Then start building the City wider roads, free WIFI, demolish all the illegal buildings, improve the train station to world class. New paint for all the official buildings and then computerize all the government offices.
