'Jaipur next startup hub after B'luru'
Jaipur is fast-becoming the next destination for startups in India, after Bengaluru. Projecting Rajasthan as an ‘equipped state’ to embrace the digital economy, the state’s Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje on Monday said that the state capital is emerging as the next destination for startups, for which the government is providing a supporting environment. “Bengaluru is a great place for startups, but Jaipur is the next place for them. The incubation centre which supports startups is now in the policy of the Government of Rajasthan,” Raje said.

Jaipur has also become the first city in the country, and in South Asia, to monitor and operate smart city infrastructure using a single network. The newly-developed Network Operating Centre (NOC) at the Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) will integrate digital infrastructure such as intelligent kiosks, wireless broadband, sensor-based dust bins, smart streetlights, parking and app, among others. It was inaugurated by Raje on Monday.

Meanwhile, with an aim to manage the city with greater efficiency and effectiveness, the Cisco Lighthouse City in 2016, a first in South Asia is assigned to select cities from all over the world to give citizens a better quality of life.
