Policy makers can do well to team up with Siemens and similarly placed technology-driven companies while planning for converting a city into a nice beautiful city.
SOME CITIES in India offer plenty of opportunities for being converted into nice beautiful mega cities because they are yet to properly embark on being modernized. The state of Uttar Pradesh where Lord Shri Ram and Lord Shri Krishna were born can get a beautiful facelift for being converted into a nice state having some of the best cities in the future.
Environment-friendly housing colonies and environment friendly industries should come up in big numbers for being qualified as beautiful cities. A company known as Siemens has for the first time showcased at creating environmentally-sustainable cities that offer better quality of life to its residents. Their showcase included solutions such as smart grid, complete mobility, intelligent buildings, traffic management, public space security, water, port and airport solutions, as per Siemen's India blog. Proper planned development involving technical tie ups with such companies can result in getting the best of the solutions when it comes to improving the overall infrastructure of a city.
The options could be either the company should get directly involved in constructing/reconstructing a city or select team of Indian engineers and technocrats can go to the headquarters of Siemens for learning the technical knowhow from A to Z which they can deploy suitably in Indian cities. It always pays to tie up with proven leaders like Siemens who will find it very difficult to comprise on the word ‘quality’. Quality is what is needed today to convert many cities into nice beautiful cities for the future.
