Inviting Ideas, Suggestions, Comments for Round -3 Smart City Bihar Sharif Project

Bihar Sharif is the fifth most populous city in the state and district headquarters of Nalanda district. It is a regional, economic
and political hub with excellent rail and road connectivity and is renowned as the capital of South Central Bihar. It is
strategically located with respect to places of immense historical and cultural importance. The ruins at Nalanda, which is a
World Heritage site, is just 13 km away from Biharsharif.

The city has harnessed its agricultural base to develop its industrial sector. The large produce base is a huge potential
(Nalanda district has the second highest agricultural productivity in Bihar with 74.4% of land under cultivation and 57% of the
gross cultivated land irrigated) to facilitate new businesses and innovative ancillary industries that has provided local
employment opportunities. In the last 3 years, some of the noteworthy initiatives at city level under implementation include
increase in energy availability and reduction in outages; improvements in transport through widening of roads & drains , antiencroachment
drives, preparation of intelligent traffic management systems, Implementation of e-governance. Improvements
have been noted in basic infrastructure especially solid waste management, landscape development and sanctioning of a
water supply project.

Our city “Biharsharif” scored 49.11 marks in the previous round of the Smart City selection process. The Government of
India has set benchmark of 55 marks out of 100 for a winning proposal. The feedback given by GoI in previous round is that
the proposal should be more participative. So, Biharsharif Municipal Corporation is currently working on upgrading its
proposals for round 3 of the Smart City mission. One of the key processes of the mission is to engage with the citizens at
every stage in order to prioritize the areas for intervention. The citizen engagement would lead to a meaningful envisioning
exercise and identify the priority areas of physical, social; economic and institutional infrastructure.

To update our proposal in order to achieve the benchmark set by the MOUD and the winning cities, Biharsharif Municipal
Corporation appeal the citizens to engage and provide their suggestions in formulation of the Smart City proposal in Round 3
for our city Biharsharif.

The Smart City proposal in previous round submitted to MOUD can be accessed through the link mentioned below:-

The first smart solution to overcome this traffic congestion is to impose taxes on private cars and heavy fees on parking to enter the centre of the city during peak hours. And make a rule for compulsory four persons on private car during peak hours.

Traffic is the ‘Lifeline’ of any city and traffic congestion is a big problem for everyone within the city like Biharsharif. The main reasons why traffic congestion occurs are more cars & poor road management.
