It was in 2014 that Modi Government launched one of its ambitious projects of Rural Electrification. The center plans to electrify 18,452 un-electrified villages within 1,000 days by May 1, 2018. Not one village should deprive of electricity. The project was too realistic to believe because India has been facing the issues of Power cuts since ages.

Some of Indian villages have been living in dark for a long time. The remote villages of Bihar faced the power cuts for 70 hours straight. Few villages of our country lack the proper infrastructure for electricity even after 68 years of Independence.

In April 2016, Union Power Minister Piyush Goyal claimed to take the credit for speeding up the process of electrification in rural Uttar Pradesh that lacked most electricity. Electrification in UP reached almost to 1300 villages in 2015-2016. He also plans to provide electricity to every village of UP by end of 2019.

The ministry has also launched a mobile application called GARV that gives us the updates of every recent electrified village. This was a really good move on the part of Government to keep a track of the villages getting electrified. The dashboard of the app showcases the total number of un-electrified villages, electrified villages and the work in progress and the details of research done for every village.

A statement published in March 2016 said that during 2015-16, 7012 villages have been electrified. Out of which 1,654 villages were electrified during April 2015 to August 2015 and 5,358 additional villages have been added in the list.

The statement also claimed that 196 villages were electrified in just a week during March. The villages included in the states of Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Orissa, Jharkhand, UP, MP, Manipur and Rajasthan.

This rural electrification program for the country is one huge milestone for the Indian Government. Indeed, it is a long way to achieve the said ambition, but the start is tremendous.

The smart city mission is a bold initiative by #ModiGovernment with an aim to improve the quality of life by smart planning of cities. With a rise in economic growth, it is necessary that the future of our cities become a reliable and sustainable one.

However, the definition of a smart city may vary from city to city, region to region and the willingness to change and reform per se. No single definition can describe the Indian smart cities as we have diversified Indian culture and rules in use.

The urban populations grow largely and according to research, about 75% of population will start living in cities by 2050.

Efficient use of Energy: A smart city must focus on providing electricity to every household but at the same time must try to reduce the bill amount. It must be transparent when it comes to the cost meters.

Environment friendly: Proper sanitation is a necessity for every citizen. Currently India accounts to 50% open defecation issues which can be witnessed in cities like Mumbai too. Hence, good infrastructure as well as every household having a recycling waste machine is a necessity.

Better constructions: The construction of commercial buildings and residential areas should focus on conserving the environmental resources such as water and energy by building the solar panels.

Strengthen IT & communication: Technology is slowly but gradually replacing manpower. Hence smart cities will be witnessing few the changes too. Broadband connections all over city are one of the undergoing changes.

Structural Planning: The cities should be planned in such a way that the residents have convenient access to workplace from their homes as well as good functioning of public transportation.

Accessible Healthcare: It is the birth right of every citizen to have better healthcare facilities within the vicinity of their residence. With a spike in healthcare budget according to Modi Government by 27%, four new college institutions like AIIMS will be established.

Hence, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s mission of Smart Cities is intended to transform the lives and living conditions of the citizens of the country. It can be a farfetched dream, but there is no turning back for India now as we at Atomberg Technologies are determined to improve the use of electricity with The Gorilla Fan.
