Smart City Rourkela has secured a place among the ‘Top 10 Cities of India’

Rourkela:18/1/22: The Smart City Rourkela has secured a place among the ‘Top 10 Cities of India’ as part of the ‘Nurturing Neighbourhoods Challenge’ under the aegis of the Smart Cities Mission of the Ministry of Housing & Urban Affairs.

The winning cities announced by Ministry are Bengaluru, Hubballi-Dharwad, Rourkela, Indore, Jabalpur, Kakinada, Kochi, Kohima, Vadodara, and Warangal. The finalists were selected after a thorough evaluation of their proposed and implemented projects by a jury consisting of representatives from the Ministry of Housing & Urban Affairs, BvLF, and independent experts in urban design, early childhood development, and behavioral change.

In the first stage of the challenge, the Rourkela Smart City Limited (RSCL) and the Rourkela Municipal Corporation (RMC) jointly responded to MoHUA’s open call for proposals to implement neighborhood-level pilot projects improving public spaces, streets, transport, and access to services to enhance the health and wellbeing of 0-5-year-old children and their caregivers.

In February 2021, Rourkela was shortlisted by an expert committee from 63 applicant cities across the country. Over the next seven months, it was part of a cohort of 25 cities that received technical assistance and capacity building to solicit citizen participation, implement trials and pilots, and build consensus around their proposals.
