We all know that Delhi government is on the mission to make Delhi fist smart city in next three years. They have already made a big master plan to highlight Delhi as the city which will make pollution free and more environments friendly. They aim to transform Delhi with their finest infrastructure including well maintained and operational sanitation and public transportation facilities. Government has already set up various administrative and technical bodies who have taken the role to identify the zonal area and do the proper survey to identify the issues and opportunities in those area in order to improve the conditions and facilities which will be required and type of approach to be taken under Delhi Mission Master Plan. It is infact Government is really serious to implement all the projects following the global best solutions and transparency with the projects for the successful and fruitful solution to their completion of all the plans to make it as smart city. A panel is being set to identify illicit lodging areas and for their acquisition. There are efforts likely to connect road, rail and other forms of transportation linked together for effective public transport solution.
We all love to visit to foreign destination and admire them gracefully and it is important that we also talk about our own Delhi and its condition. We need to support every effort linked to make this city safe and clean. This is need of hour to reduce the pollution whether air or noise. We need to make sure that cleanliness, sanitation becomes priority around the area surrounding our home. We need to identify solid and liquid waste and must ensure to throw them at right place. There is need to educate students and every citizen about reducing the menace of pollution. Car pooling is one thing which we can take to stop driving our vehicles and installing solar powered devices can help in curbing such problem.
The situation in Delhi has improved over the years but still not up to the global standard marks. Government should try to beautify the surroundings and promote ads in encouraging use of renewable source of energy. I am happy that this is first time government and Supreme Court has passed the order to ban the use of crackers and also selling them taking into consideration air pollution and health problems. Vodafone which is private company has also supported this cause and has provided Super Crackers with plant seeds in their store for next three days. Green diwali is the way for future diwali celebrations from now on and each parent should encourage their children to stop buying crackers and instead plant trees in their nearby surroundings. Air pollution can also be prevented in the way that if we use Metro and CNG vehicles. We can switch off the lights and prevent water flowing when not required as their already scarcity of water in Delhi and water level is going really low day by day. All these efforts will definitely help in contribution to make Delhi better living place and smart city.
Security is another major concern for me and it is important that action is taken to keep city safe for children and women. Being digital is one such step taken by government to keep us connected in such situation. Vodafone has also provided the service for free internet in Delhi and NCR areas by creating wifi zones. There are more than 120 hotspots being set up to avail internet and use it for free irrespective of whether you are Vodafone customer or not. Vodafone has also brought innovative air purifying bus shelter in the city for Delhi people so that they can be protected from air pollution while waiting for the bus at the bus stop.
All such efforts will help in giving a boost to make Delhi smart city in coming days. You should also read more about Vodafone Delhi initiative to make it smart city.
