Among the 98 cities, 24 are state capitals and includes 13 cities from Uttar Pradesh, 12 cities from Tamil Nadu, 10 from Maharashtra, seven from Madhya Pradesh, three from Bihar and three from Andhra Pradesh. The Centre has earmarked Rs 48,000 crore for development of 100 smart cities.

About nine major cities such as Bengaluru, Kolkata, Shimla, Puducherry, Daman, Patna, Itanagar, Thiruvananthapuram and Gangtok did not qualify the smart city criteria. Each smart city would get a Central assistance of Rs. 100 crore per year for five years. ‘Smart City’ is an initiative by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to take the pressure off Indian metros. The success of the government’s Smart City Mission is largely dependent upon the finance generation at the State level as well as private investments. The central government has set aside Rs. 48,000 crores for the mission and the money will be released to urban local bodies in frequent intervals in the next five years. The central government has asked the State governments to generate the rest of the Rs. 48,000 crores as the grand total of the mission is estimated at Rs. 96,000 crores.
