“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”

Indore was chosen among 19 other countries for the mission. The mission involved humongous funds to make the development area-based along with having a PAN-city solution. The mission to make Smart City Indore smart is that the citizens come together and join hands as a united front to make the city more beautiful than it already is. 

As the city has made its mark in delicious Poha across the country, it also earns the Best Smart City Award jointly with Surat in various sectors. 

The city was founded in the early 1800s, which gives the place irreplaceable value and is needed to engage it with modern suburban amenities. It became fully functional per the Smart City criteria making it stand out among others. The plan to form Smart City Indore came out truly well as the authorities planned it strategically by focusing on Area Based Development and a Pan-city solution.
