The GIFT city has been the smart city in true sense ans spirit.The infrastructure created in the gift city and its efficiency has been citizen friendly and in many cases 1st time in India. This makes the Gift city the role model for the other planned smart cities in India. Few salient features of infrastructure like Artificial Lake and Multi level parking are being executed to make the city congestion free and live resulting in joy and happiness of the people working or residing in Gift city.

cctv har jagah lage huve he criminal ko pakadne ke liye.lekin itna kaafi nahi he.sahi tarike se cctv ka use nahi ho raha he.mere idea se cctv helpfull tabhi hoga jab cctv ki live footage dekhi jaayegi.ager aise staff live cctv footage pe nazar rakhenge to on the time crime hone se rok sakenge,aur wohi time pe criminal ko pakad sakenge.aise crime ko rokna bahot easy ho jayega.aur criminal bhi bach nahi se city crimeless ho jayegi aur polish ka kaam bhi city safe India

High Frequency trading companies prefer setting up their office near an exchange. GIFT might be able to attract HFTs if there are some provision made to setup a subsidiary branch of exchanges (not sure if this can be done but maybe an optic fiber connection with original exchange which will ensure low latency). Thanks
