Outcome: To emphasize and implement the technologies into INDIAN SMART CITIES. Description: Eco-Smart City is a civilization aligning information technologies to citizens’ needs in order to enhance their day-to-day lives by increasing green-efficiency, lowering costs and engaging more directly with city dwellers. Eco-Smart City has emerged as an interdisciplinary concept that covers different aspects related to big cities, including the infrastructure that incorporates various advanced green technologies that enables better communication between channels and overcoming economic backwardness in a community. Since a city can´t be visualized in only one perspective, this project tackles some of its individual sectors to obtain the key performance indicators that are essential to improving the quality of life, including: urbanization, communication, education, and economy. Quantifying these, data is useful for estimating consumed resources, forecasting shortages, and correcting damage in a timely manner. The increased growth of Eco-Smart Cities will drive the need to innovate and provide solutions to foster convergence within the city by zooming on smart technologies and smart ideas like introducing zero-energy buildings, constructing glowing roads, installing rainwater harvesting techniques, solar panels, piezo-electric materials, wind mills and setting up bio-diesel and sewage treatment plants, etc.
