JABALPUR SMART CITY PROPOSAL ANALYSIS

The vision of the proposal focuses on transforming Jabalpur by developing the following four nodes:

  • Commerce
  • Governance
  • Tourism
  • Education

The proposal finds only mention of persons with disabilities on the part of citizen engagement and universal accessibility features for smart urban form. The proposal highly undermines the role of persons with disabilities in its every goal like the generation of employment and sustainable travel options. The area based development talks about features like universally accessible spaces, pathways, facilities and crossings but fails to incorporate adequate provisions in the proposal.

Citizen engagement under the pan-city proposal of solid waste management through mobile applications and public domains will be inaccessible for persons with disabilities. There exists no inclusion of disabled population under the major nodes of the vision and thus leaving them behind in the development agenda. The proposal only covers the aspect of mobility succinctly but does not highlight any exclusive proposal for persons with disabilities.
