The modern-day human efforts after the highly noteworthy advent of IT in
every inch and space of activity have shown the human species having surrendered a
lot of Artificial intelligence to machines. In the process of human computational skills
and efficiency, the human species has created a huge smart network of gadgets and
processes that control almost all the activities. The so-called smart city concept today is
seen differently in various parts of the globe. Remote villages now with access to
electricity and Wi-Fi are the next geographical zones that are earmarked for becoming
a SMART village. India has a road map for smart city efforts. Digital India and Startup
India are a few words that can inspire. But before a city/village gets smart, it needs a
whole lot of support structures that need to be in place. This work presents the
implementation of the smart city concept through a leading IT company Computer
Maintenance Corporation to help launch a smart (Amanora) township at Pune. The
observation that people are ready to pay for better service was evident in the sales of
the 16,000 apartments/flats though a bit high on price. The work also involved studying
a few smart township projects and the type of hardware and software available across
the world and the insight gained through cost benefit analysis and more will be
presented in the chapter.
