Rae Bareli, newly-formed Telangana’s state capital Hyderabad and Srinagar are out of the Smart City race.

While Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao decided against rooting for Hyderabad in the first phase of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Smart City Mission, Congress President Sonia Gandhi’s Rae Bareli got stuck in a Centre-state tussle.

In the case of Jammu & Kashmir, the state was allotted a quota of one, but the state government refused to make the choice between Jammu and Srinagar and asked the urban development ministry to increase its share to two. The ministry refused to increase the quota, and the matter went back to the state government.

Telangana had decided to develop Hyderabad into a Smart City, but later withdrew the city but sent an alternative plan in the second round.

Uttar Pradesh has to develop 13 Smart Cities and chose 12 cities in the intra-state competition in which Sonia Gandhi’s Rae Bareli and BJP constituency Meerut were tied for the 13th spot. The Urban Ministry ask the state to make the choice and explain the reasons for choosing one over the other. Thus the proposal got stuck.
