Another important factor is the absence of Auto/Taxi stand for 24 hours service in every locality. It is undeniable that Agartala is getting smarter day by day. Local people and the visitors face immense problems whenever they do not get a reserved Auto or Taxi at point of need especially at late night. At list a single transport should be there compulsorily in every locality.

The participation of rickshaws as a way of transportation in Town areas has also become a matter of turmoil. I know Agartala is a small town which can be easily covered up through rickshaw. But to run a systematic and evener traffic system there should be rickshaw-stand inside the rural and semi-town areas only. Their route should be inside the particular locality and up to the next auto or bus stand. The same system is maintained in Kolkata.

a) Traffic jam has always been an issue in Agartala. Bikers, rickshaws and sometimes auto-rickshaws are the main culprits in this regard. Even the smaller jams become bigger ones when they poke themselves into minor gaps recklessly. Traffic police should notice and handle the matter carefully.
Moreover there should be traffic post/both at every important places like Lalbahadur club-Powerhouse crossing, Women’s college-Town hall crossing etc. to make the traffic smoothen.

A city is not smart until it manages its waste well. Waste management process should be decentralised and locality based, quick and real time. It is surprising to note that 70% of waste is organic in nature & can be reprocessed before it becomes waste or, thereafter, can be recycled in a sustainable manner. We have invented a Green Waste Reprocessor machine which re‐process all green reject and converts it into valuable by‐products. More details can be found on www.cleanindiatech.com

I think for any smart city energy is a big concern.Since now a lot of new buildings would come up, I feel most of those buildings should have solar panels installed to make the city energy sufficient or maybe even surplus.Moreover Led bulbs could be used.

I would like to draw your attention to urgent need to reform the current municipal system. Under the current system corruption is rampant, and the welfare schemes are abused by corrupt politicians and officials. There is poor planning and even poorer implementation of rules and regulations. I request your good offices to take urgent attention of rampant corruption, official apathy at municipal level to improve the working condition of Indian citizens. Jai Hind

Our civic bodies do not have a single urban planner. In cities like London, chief urban planner is the second most important official after the mayor. That is the importance given to planning," .If a city has to really become world class , the first thing is to get experts from various disciplines, including urban planners, architects, transportation planners, financial managers and environmental engineers.
