India’s First Smart Greenfield City Naya Raipur, Chhattisgarh
Smart Greenfield City Naya Raipur: Naya Raipur is India’s first smart greenfield city. It is being developed in accordance with the provisions of Development Plan-2031 which is being finalised after a series of consultation at different levels.
Naya Raipur is divided into 40 sectors out of which 21 sectors are residential and, three are for Government offices and staff housing, others are earmarked for commercial, industrial, semi public and recreational activities. It is a matter of pride that the existing villages in Naya Raipur are an integral part of planning with a mandate to bring their amenities at par with the new development. It is the first city in India to adopt and implement TOD (Transit Oriented Development) approach with easily accessible transit nodes planned as per TOD guidelines.
Naya Raipur has over 100 km of state-of-the-art four-lane and six-lane roads with 53 kms of NMT network. Clean potable water is supplied 24X7 via a fully pressurised hydro pneumatic pumping system sourced through a 52 MLD Water Treatment Plant.
It is a zero discharge city with four decentralised STPs. The recycled water is used for watering the greens of the city.
It has 72 km of centrally controlled smart LED streetlighting. It has an intelligent public transport system with 13 BRT depots and 30 BRT buses.
It is also a home to premier health and educational institutes like Shri Satya Sai Sanjeevani Hospital, Vedanta Cancer Research Institute, IIIT, IIM, HNLU, and ITM etc. Currently, under the scope of the smart city project, an integrated Command and Control Centre is being developed at Sector 19 through which all the city operations shall be monitored and controlled. The project include city surveillance using CCTV cameras, intelligent transport system having speed and incident detection. It also includes SCADA for Electrical Distribution System, Water Distribution, and Sewerage System.
With Naya Raipur now included as Smart Cities Mission, it will help in channelising new projects like community schools, upgradation of schools, affordable housing, green compliance on existing buildings, vertical gardens for public building, parks etc, aimed towards community on one side and infrastructure reinforcing projects like micro grid and solar energy, smart metering, rain water harvesting, real time water quality monitoring on the other side. This will help Naya Raipur to offer standards which no other brownfield city currently offers and no other Greenfield city is prepared to offer.
