COVER STORY

Located in the western bank of Ganga, Uttar Pradesh’s commercial capital Kanpur has played a major role in the India’s industrial and economic growth. Over the years, the city has experienced paradigm shift in terms of urban development as it joined the league of Smart Cities and has recently been ranked among the top 10 Smart City Projects in India. Arpit Gupta and Sreetama Datta Roy of Elets News Network (ENN) assay the urban growth charter.

K

anpur, one of the busiest and populous industrial hubs of Uttar Pradesh is marching towards transforming into a Smart City. One of the largest cities of the state, Kanpur was ranked as the 12th most populous city in India and 11th most populous urban agglomeration according to the 2011 census of India. Owing to industrial significance, especially its leather and textile, the city has also gained the nickname of ‘Manchester City’. Over the past few years, Kanpur is experiencing a gradual

transformation towards developing as a Smart City. Kanpur is one of the 12 Smart City projects in Uttar Pradesh. Recently, the city has been ranked eighth in the list of top 10 Smart Cities of India by the Union Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs. In Uttar Pradesh, Kanpur Smart City project has secured the first position. As compared to that of last year, Kanpur has walked up the ladder by five positions, as Kanpur was ranked 13th in the list released last year. Kanpur was selected for the Smart City

Mission in its third phase. Despite being the industrial capital of Uttar Pradesh, the city is marred by several challenges. The primary focus areas of the Kanpur Smart City Limited (KSCL), the Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) of Kanpur Smart City project was to address the challenges.

Overcoming Challenges and Converting them to Opportunities for Smart City Development According to Santosh Kumar Sharma, CEO, Kanpur Smart City Limited and Municipal Commissioner of the city, population, pollution and traffic

congestion are the major areas of challenge. “The numerous problems that we face have become challenges under the Smart City Mission. Traffic poses a major challenge and we are aiming for a revolutionary change in this field”, says Sharma. Waste management also posed to be one of the challenging areas for the civic bodies working towards the urban development of Kanpur. To sort this issue, KSCL along with the Kanpur Municipal Corporation focused on waste and effluent management techniques.

Let us give you an overview of the multiple smart initiatives taken by the SPV for the urban development of the industrial capital.

Waste Management Initiatives Talking about the priority projects, Sharma states, “Our first priority is not to let any garbage touch the ground. Presently you may see heaps of garbage beside some roads of Kanpur but in the coming years, all the garbage will be transported through closed vessel compactors and no garbage will be visible on the ground.” Kanpur is at the receiving end towards a massive amount of industrial waste as well as other forms of solid and liquid waste. Hence, the civic bodies of Kanpur are working towards developing ICT based waste management system. Within this project, garbage is collected from every household and is transported to the eight transfer stations, where the waste materials are processed or

the solid waste management, we have constructed eight transfer stations where the garbage is brought from lanes and streets. We have also deployed hydraulic machines for garbage disposal. In order to clean and rejuvenate the Ganga river, major drains have been completely tapped the sewage and industrial effluent has been diverted to Common Effluent Treatment Plants (CETPs).”

Integrated Traffic Management System (ITMS)

COVER STORY

With the effective usage of technology, facilities like Integrated Traffic Management System (ITMS), Smart Parking system and Integrated Command and Control Centre (ICCC) through CCTV surveillance, ICT based solid waste collection, and Smart Roads to name a few have been adopted.

Traffic congestion is another major problem area of the city owing to the huge population. To curb this challenge, ITMS is implemented across the city. According to KSCL, ITMS enables gathering data or intelligence and then providing timely feedback to traffic police. ITMS is integrated with various subsystems such as traffic sensors, CCTV etc. At present, there are 68 ITMS junctions and two Adaptive Traffic Control System (ATCS) junctions. KSCL also states, “Implementation of ITMS-ATCS results in improved safety to drivers, reduced traffic congestion, improved energy efficiency, and environment quality as well as enhanced economic productivity.” Shedding light on the same, Subhash

Chand Sharma says, “For a smooth run of traffic, we have come up with Intelligent Traffic Management System (ITMS) project. The traffic lights have been linked with our Integrated Command and Control Centre (ICCC). We can give alerts and commands to the Regional Transport Office (RTO), police department or electricity departments and drinking water supply can also be controlled from the ICCC.” Smart Parking – In order to ease the ordeal of the pedestrians, smart parking

walking in the area became very difficult. To resolve this problem, we created a multi-level car parking nearby. This resulted in a lot of space being created for pedestrians.”

Smart Roads In the Smart Roads project, the existing road network or streets are renovated in such a way that everyone on the road, be it the drivers of the vehicles or pedestrians or even roadside vendors are at equal ease. Santosh Kumar Sharma

The Command and Control centres are enabled with centralised software to give alerts and notifications. These also include Interactive Voice Response Services (IVRS) or Call Centre support. According to KSCL, CCTV cameras with built-in facial recognition system are to be installed in 148 junctions of the city for centralised control and monitoring. There are 86 free WiFi spots across installed across the city.

COVER STORY

Talking about the citizens’ grievance redressal system, Subhash Chand Sharma says, “We are also coming up with a grievance redressal system to reach out to the citizens. Day-to-day complaints related to water, electricity or sewerage can be registered there, which will go to the ICCC. As the complaint reaches to us, it will be forwarded to the concerned officer for necessary action.”

system is installed across the industrial capital of Uttar Pradesh. Owing to a large number of private vehicles on the road, solutions such as multi-storied car parking facilities have been developed across the city. With the help of the mobile application, vehicle owners can find out available parking space. They can also book an available parking spot in advance by paying a stipulated fee through the mobile app itself. Sharing example of Kanpur’s famous Naveen Market and how smart parking system brought convenience to the pedestrians and market visitors, Santosh Kumar Sharma said, “We have completely changed the face of Naveen Market. Now it is a pedestrian market. Earlier there were huge lines of cars present in and around the market and

states, “We have undertaken some smart road projects for making smart pathways and cycle tracks. Also, amenities like street furniture are being installed for pedestrians.” Some of the features of the Smart Road project include widening of roads, restoring footpaths with polymer interlocking tiles and tactile path for visually impaired, smart poles and cycle tracks among others. The project also includes plantation of trees on either side of the roads and on the dividers.

Integrated Command and Control Centres The ICCC is a culmination of multiple projects which ensures convenience of the citizens but ensures their safety and security as well. The projects include Data Centre, CCTV surveillance, free

The multiple utility Smart Card developed by KSCL can be used for online utility bill payments, municipal tax payments, online ticket booking for travel as well as movies, mobile and DTH online recharge, online shopping as well as cash withdrawal from ATMs.

Water Management In a bid to conserve water resources, the Kanpur civic bodies have taken multiple initiatives to recycle, rejuvenate and harvest water from various sources.

Rain Water Harvesting and Waste Water Recycling KSCL has selected as many as six government buildings across the city for installing rain water harvesting system. The rain water is conserved in the rooftop storage tanks and further treated in order to make the rain water potable or usable.

[ egov.eletsonline.com ] The Largest Portal on e-Governance in Asia and the Middle East


As far as waste water recycling is concerned, KSCL mentions that waste water, resulting from common washing area in Bhaironghat is collected and recycled and the fresh water is circulated across the city for public usage. Commenting on the waste water management, Santosh Kumar Sharma says, “We have also undertaken projects for rain water harvesting under smart city mission. We have Sewage Treatment Plants (STPs) working 24x7 and now there is a very big thermal power plant coming up in Panki. We are working on an agreement so that treated water from STPs goes to that plant.”

Santosh Kumar Sharma also adds, “We discourage digging of tube wells or extracting underground water. We try to be fully dependent on surface water sources.”

Air Quality Monitoring Kanpur is considered to be one of the most polluted cities in the world based on the particulate matter concentration. To curb this challenge, Air Quality Monitoring sensors are installed across 50 locations in the city. The electro chemical sensor monitors the presence of harmful elements such as Carbon Monoxide, Carbon Dioxide, Sulphur Dioxide, Nitrogen Dioxide and Particulate Matter.

Beautification of city and restoration of historic buildings

New Feather in Cap - Kanpur Metro

Kanpur holds immense historic significance. It was one of the major locations of the 1857 uprising for the India’s struggle of independence. In a bid to keep the historic spirit alive, Kanpur Smart City Limited is working towards restoring the historic sites like Nana Rao Park, Ghanta Ghar or Clock Tower among others.

The Kanpur Metro network is under progress. According to Santosh Kumar Sharma, the Detailed Project Report (DPR) and the tender process have been completed for the Kanpur metro rail. Phase-1 for the metro is underway.

Sharing further details about the project, Subhash Chand Sharma shares, “The old structure should not be changed because people can have a kind of faith or a sense of honour towards the site. We are just providing additional facilities to give an attractive shape to the place. For example, in Nana Rao Park and Bithoor, we have not touched the old structure; we are just installing statues or autobiographies of freedom fighters, so that people can know about their lives.” Apart from the restoration of the historic sites, work is ongoing for beautifying parks and installing open gyms there. According to KCSL, so far, as many as six open gyms have been installed in Nana Rao Park Phool Bagh, Water Park at Hanspuram, Geeta Park at Kidwai Nagar, Kargil Park at Motijheel, Mahapalika Park at Ratanlal Nagar and Ramleela Park at Geeta Nagar.

KSCL is also developing smart water meters, through which the following features would be there for optimum utilisation of available resources as well as avoid water wastage: l Enables two-way communication between utilities and consumers l Tamper proof meters with real-time monitoring l Accurate billing with theft detection l Remote cutoff water supply in case a consumer exceeds overdue limit l Wireless data collection from water meters

While the civic bodies are progressing towards a smarter future in terms of urban development, the mandate with the administrators and policymakers is to develop a healthy city with the elimination of the factors causing health hazards. As Subhash Chand Sharma puts it, “One of our future plans is to completely remove health hazards. To control air pollution, we have installed pollution control panels that will give alerts to the people regarding pollution levels in the air. Another future plan is to make the whole city clean. It should reflect in the environment within and around the city. There should be an upgrade in the lifestyle of the residents and an increment in our Human Development Index.”

Smart City Mission has created a paradigm shift in the field of urban planning as well as administration. Explaining the factor of how the Smart City Mission is positively impacting the economy, environment as well as the indicators like transport, water management, waste management to name a few. Manoj Kumar Singh, Principal Secretary, Department of Urban Development, Government of Uttar Pradesh, explains how Smart City Mission has spurred innovation and growth.

[ egov.eletsonline.com ] The Largest Portal on e-Governance in Asia and the Middle East


SPOTLIGHT: SMART CITY MISSION

“C

ities are the growth engines of any economy. They provide an ecosystem where innovations flourish because of the congregation of intellect and other resources. Urban planning in India started long back and at one point of time, India was leading the world. However, we have fallen behind. Before the Smart City Mission came into place, Municipal Corporations in states like Uttar Pradesh were limited to providing basic services of sanitation, water supply, etc. as emphasised under Swachh Bharat Mission and Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT). But Smart City Mission has taken us to a completely different level of innovation where we can increase our efficiency in providing basic services and also do projects that did not come under the purview of urban development or municipal councils before.

Significant Projects Integrated Command & Control Centres (ICCCs) are an important part of the Smart City Mission. This is

where Information Technology (IT) is used for increasing the efficiency of basic service delivery and also for entering new areas of operation like the Integrated Traffic Management System (ITMS) which was not reckoned earlier as a developmental concept for Municipal Corporations. Under this mission, seven percent funds can be used for administrative and other expenses but there is no clear cut marking what should be the expenditure or what should be the set up at state level. Also, we have great Project Management Consultants (PMCs) working with cities but there is no such structure at state level. The state government proposes that in the next five years we will be making an investment of around Rs 500 crore in partnership with the 17 municipal corporations.

PRAYAGRAJ SMART CITY

Prayagraj:

Transformation of Heritage City to Smart City Prayagraj, the erstwhile city of Allahabad in Uttar Pradesh has a rich legacy to offer. Be it in terms of spiritual, cultural or educational aspects, Prayagraj is considered to be one of the heritage cities of Uttar Pradesh, vis-Ă -vis India and has been ranked as the 16th most liveable city in India. Dr Ashish Goel Divisional Commissioner, Prayagraj, and Chairman, Prayagraj Smart City Limited gives an overview on how the city is transforming as Smart City.

he transformation of Prayagraj began even before it was declared a Smart City in September 2017. This is because the preparations for Kumbh 2019 started in April 2017.

For the Smart City projects of Prayagraj, first emphasis was given to strengthening and widening of roads because the city was suffering from traffic jams all the year-round. For this purpose, a number of railway over-bridges, under-bridges and flyovers were selected.

Primary Projects of Prayagraj Smart City A lot of sewerage laying work was in progress under the Namami Gange - National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG) and erstwhile Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM). Hence, the re-construction work was very

carefully deliberated upon before execution. For efficient transmission of power, safety of residents and also for aesthetics, overhead wiring has been removed in the city and street lights have been placed within the median. We are also creating night shelters in the city.

Waste Management Measures

Parks and Open Gyms

We have invested heavily in solid waste management; we have installed compactors, tippers and port stations all across the city; in a few months time, open garbage bins will be a thing of the past.

We have laid emphasis on the development of parks and open spaces inside the city; some park construction works were undertaken under Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) and others under the Smart City Mission which includes open gyms as well.

We have laid a lot of emphasis on building public toilets which are being built on already existing government campuses. We first break the boundary of these campuses and then put the public toilet inside so that there is no encroachment of their Right of Way (RoW).

Initiatives for Centralisation of Administrative Services We have completed the construction of our Integrated Command and Control Centre (ICCC) in a record

We widened our Railway under-bridges in less than six months. It involved coordination with multiple departments including Railways, Jal Nigam, Telecom and Sewerage.

Enhancing the Aesthetic Essence among the People of Prayagraj For the renovation of Prayagraj city’s traffic intersections, a scientific study was conducted by Urban Mass Transit Company (UMTC). They came up with a design which we implemented by removing encroachments and shifting utilities. Now, all 64 of our intersections bear a completely new look coupled with beautiful murals and sculptures.

For the beautification of the city, we had this unique ‘Paint my City’ campaign wherein around 20 lakh square feet of public walls and spaces including flyovers and pillars, among others, were adorned with mythological, cultural and historical paintings. The citizens of Prayagraj take pride in their art and till now there has not been a single case of defacement.

Ensuring Quality Check for Each Project We had online project monitoring systems in place and no manual reports were taken. There were weekly targets for each and every activity and sub-activity of the projects. We had a third party inspection system for which we hired a reputed company called TUV India. They checked the quality as well as physical progress of each and every project and as a result, we were able to reduce the overall Kumbh Mela project cost of Rs 27 crore by a whopping 15 percent, that too without compromising on either the scope or delivery of the project. These are some of the key projects and features that were introduced in Prayagraj and we hope to replicate them in other projects in Prayagraj and in the rest of India as well.

Also, smart road project is coming up near Nana Rao Park and Phool Bagh area, which comes under Area Based Development (ABD) in the Smart City Mission. Nana Rao Park have been converged with Namami Gange programme. I believe that the old structure of any heritage building or monument should not be disturbed because people have their sentiments attached with it. Keeping that in mind, we are just providing additional facilities and giving attractive shape to these places. In Nana Rao Park and Bithoor, we have proposed to install statues and autobiographies of freedom fighters in remembrance of their sacrifice for the nation. Also, we are providing basic facilities like drinking water, toilets, parking, wall fencing, CCTVs, etc.

We are focusing on improving the health and fitness of the citizens therefore facilities like open gyms are coming up. We are beautifying many public parks and ensuring basic amenities over there. To maintain these parks, Kanpur Municipal Corporation can also introduce a ticket system to generate revenue.

What are your plans for Conservation, Restoration and Redevelopment of Heritage Monuments? We are conserving, restoring and redeveloping our heritage buildings and historic sites such as Ghantaghar and Nana Rao Park. We are installing merry-go-rounds for children,

Technology plays a vital role in making the lives of citizens hassle-free. What e-governance initiatives have been undertaken by Kanpur Smart City for enabling better citizen services delivery? Under the Smart City Mission, we have a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) to monitor and execute all the development works or IT-related projects. Common Service Centres (CSCs) are being opened to facilitate people with essential public utility services, social welfare schemes, healthcare, financial, education and agriculture services online. We are also coming up with a grievance redressal system to reach out to the citizens. Day-to-day complaints related to water, electricity or sewerage can be registered there, which will go to the ICCC. As the complaint reaches to us, it will be forwarded to the concerned officer for necessary action.

Kanpur Smart City has been recently ranked at eighth position in the Smart City ranking of the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs. What are the upcoming projects? We are implementing smart solutions in Kanpur city to modernise the waste management, traffic and water management as well as restoring the heritage monuments to bring back the glory. We have developed parking spaces at several places and also built a multi-level parking. We will begin work on another multi-level parking soon. We have made a beautiful market called Naveen Market. It is among a chosen few markets in India that have been declared a ‘no-vehicle zone’. The market is very much organised with facilities like drinking water, toilets and playground for children, among others. Parking place has been developed separately for the visitors of Naveen Market. We are also planning to make compost in parks and will also train them to make manure based on different types of wastes. When facilities are given, the economic activities witness a boom automatically. If we make these places clean, more people will come. These places will create employment opportunity for fruit sellers, spice sellers, toy shops and sweet shops, among others. One of our future plans is to completely remove health hazards. To control air pollution, we have installed pollution control panels that will give alerts to the people regarding pollution levels in the air. Another future plan is to make the whole city clean. It should reflect in the environment within and around the city. There should be an upgrade in the lifestyle of the residents and an increment in our Human Development Index.

POLICYMAKER PERSPECTIVE

Santosh Kumar Sharma

Commissioner, Kanpur Municipal Corporation and CEO, Kanpur Smart City Limited

Kanpur Smart City: Deploying ITMS and ICCC to Curb Traffic Congestion The people of Kanpur do get the feeling that their city is becoming smarter. Hopefully, within a year or two, face of the entire city will be changed. Every aspect of life has been improved and will continue to improve, says Santosh Kumar Sharma, Commissioner, Kanpur Municipal Corporation and CEO, Kanpur Smart City Limited in an exclusive interview with Elets News Network (ENN). He talks about various challenges faced in developing the Kanpur Smart City and how the administration is working towards mitigating them. 20

SEPTEMBER 2019

Give us an overview on the progress of Kanpur Smart City. Kanpur is one of the most populated cities in Uttar Pradesh. The numerous problems that we face have become challenges under the Smart City Mission. We have taken some progressive steps in solid waste management but we have to implement a pan city solution for the solid waste problem. We have recently done some good work in the ABD area in this regard. We have a very comprehensive plan regarding Integrated Command & Control Centre (ICCC). We have already integrated nine major utilities with our ICCC. I think, the people of Kanpur do get the feeling that their city is becoming smarter. Hopefully, within a year or two, face of the entire city will be changed. Every aspect of life has been improved and will continue to improve.

POLICYMAKER PERSPECTIVE

area became very difficult. To resolve this problem, we created a multi level car parking nearby. This resulted in a lot of space being created for the pedestrians. Now it has become a selfie point in the heart of our city.

What are the plans in pipeline for the Kanpur Smart City Mission and their timelines? Our first priority is not to let any garbage touch the ground. Presently you may see heaps of garbage beside some roads of Kanpur but in the coming years, all the garbage will be transported through closed vessel compactors and no garbage will be visible on the ground.

These are some of the projects we have undertaken and it is our expectation that within two to three years, everything will be streamlined and people will get all the benefits on the ground.

We are installing CCTVs to get the entire city under surveillance so that anyone who lives in, or comes to Kanpur, feels safe. Traffic poses a major challenge and we are aiming for a revolutionary change in this field. By working on Intelligent Transport Management System (ITMS) under ICCC, we are trying to bring a major part of Kanpur under an e-challan system which will lead to less physical interventions and more technological interventions. With an aim to improve the infrastructure of Kanpur, we have undertaken some smart road projects for making smart pathways and cycle tracks. Also, amenities like street furniture are being installed for pedestrians. For example, there is a market in Kanpur called Naveen market. We have completely changed the face of this market. Now it is a pedestrian market. Earlier there were huge lines of cars present in and around the market and walking in the

Since water is one of our precious natural resources, how is it being managed and are there any conservation activities that have been taken up? Kanpur is situated on the banks of river Ganges. We have water treatment plants to get surface water from the river. We discourage digging of tube wells or extracting underground water. We try to be fully dependent on surface water sources. We have also undertaken projects for rain water harvesting under smart city mission. We have Sewage Treatment Plants (STPs) working 24x7 and now there is a very big thermal power plant coming up in Panki. We are working on an agreement so that treated water from STPs goes to that plant. We are also working on waste water drains. We want only treated water to go into the drains so that we can

create more pedestrian paths along the drains. Presently it stinks and nobody wants to go there. We are working with IITs to solve this problem.

Have you taken up any initiatives on the e-mobility front, like electric vehicles? The State Government has provided about a hundred e-buses for the city. Also, Kanpur has been selected for a metro rail-line. The Detailed Project Report (DPR) and the tender process have been completed already. Phase-1 for the metro is going to start soon. Also, when we are purchasing new vehicles, we are going for CNG-based ones, not diesel ones. As you know, Kanpur is presently being counted as one of the most polluted cities, not only in India but across the globe. We are working hard to change its reputation for the better.

Have you taken any initiatives towards using renewable energy like solar energy? We have a mandate to lessen the energy demand of our grid by up-to 10 percent. It is one of the very important goals of our smart city mission. We are working with New & Renewable Energy Development Agency (NEDA) to install solar energy powered lights across the city. We have recently installed intelligent solar LED lights in many of our lanes and parks.
