INDORE SMART CITY PROPOSAL ANALYSIS

The proposal perceives imagining Indore to Inherit, Innovate, Include, Incubate and Invest as a smart city. The goals of the city are to create a conception of sustainable urban mobility, environment, infrastructure, inclusive urban governance and citizen services, incubation of urban work force and investment opportunities broadly.

The components of transport and walkability covers several features for persons with disabilities under retrofit-redevelopment proposal of area-based development to the extent of pedestrian safety, barrier free universally accessible pathways, public spaces, crossings, streets and junctions. However, the other project activities and sectors have failed to cover features for persons with disabilities.

There is no consideration of persons with disabilities under the part of economy and employment with the establishment of incubation and skill development centres. Accessibility to IT-enabled government services, mobile based applications for solid waste management, electronic common mode of payment, smart classrooms, etc for improved service delivery is also not ensured for persons with disabilities. The proposal has only incorporated some measures for built environment while completely neglecting other sectors, especially digital inclusion for persons with disabilities.
