Karimnagar and Amaravati have figured in the list of 30 smart cities in the country under the Central government’s Smart City Mission. The span of five years for implementing various development activities.
Union urban development minister M. Venkaiah Naidu announced the list of 30 cities on Friday under which Karimnagar stood at sixth position. Meanwhile, it was a double joy for Telangana chief minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao as the state stood at sixth in the fiscal year 2016-17 for reformatory measures under the guidelines of AMRUT (Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation). Naidu sanctioned Rs 19.93 crore.








Of the 30 smart cities, 26 have proposed affordable housing projects that benefit the urban poor. While 26 cities will be taking up school and hospital projects, 29 will be taking up redesign and redevelopment of roads.


The union minister said that these 30 cities will put in place integrated command and control centres that enable coordination among various agencies for better service delivery and effective management of scarce resources such as water and power. The ministry has distributed Rs 500 crore among various states to carry out reforms in the urban sector.
