Uttarakhand hopes the Smart City project that is being planned as the satellite city on Doon’s outskirts will be an “eco-friendly knowledge hub.” It will have state-of-the-art infrastructure and housing top educational institutions of the country.

To be developed over 319 acres of tea estate land, the Smart City will host country’s leading higher educational institutions and be turned into a logistics and warehousing hub of the state, said R Meenakshi Sundaram, the nodal officer for Smart City.

“It will be developed as an eco-friendly knowledge hub of the region, infusing technology for providing timely and accurate information to citizens and authorities for decision making and promoting tourism,” Sundaram said.

With as many as 149 of the total 319 acres to be used for education/vocational education purposes, the Smart City will give a boost to the “knowledge capital” image of the city, with a robust information technology (IT) connectivity and digitisation further making life easier.

At least 10 per cent of the Smart City’s energy requirement will come from solar energy. Besides, eco-friendly measures like waste water recycling, storm water reuse and automated vacuum waste collection system will make it even more “green”, said the Smart City proposal of Dehradun.

A special mobile application ‘DehradunOne app’ will also be developed as a part of the pan city project to extend accessible public service delivery to citizens across the city.
