The Smart City Mission in India covers 100 cities in the country, Thanjavur being one of them.
The opportunity was to develop Thanjavur as a people-centric city with a good living and working environment, along with being a knitwear hub of India. This required a holistic approach based on pragmatic solutions to provide a better quality of life through amenities such as improved transportation, housing situation, SWM, energy & water availability, safety, and security in the city.
The impact of this e-governance solution for Thanjavur Smart City has been the real-time monitoring, data collation, and response management of the various facets of the smart city.
