Livable, Sustainable, and Efficient for Citizens and Tourists Jaipur, the capital of the state of Rajasthan, is one of the largest metropolises in the northern India. A popular tourist destination, Jaipur is world famous for its unique architecture, forts, monuments, and palaces. As one vertex of the Golden Triangle of New Delhi, Agra and Jaipur, the city witnesses a high influx of both foreign and domestic tourists every year. Though the population of Jaipur is around 3.6 million, the city attracts nearly 2 million visitors annually.
Going beyond its well-established profile as a prominent tourist destination, the city of Jaipur wanted to reinvent itself as a leader in the smart city initiative of the central government. The city envisioned a digital infrastructure that not only enhances the quality of life of its citizens, and also creates a user-friendly administration for visiting tourists. It was with this aim that Jaipur Smart City Limited, a special purpose vehicle, was set up as a nodal agency to oversee the efficient execution of the Jaipur smart city project.
