IIT-B fete to help design smart cities

On the lines of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision to build 100 smart cities in India, Techfest, the signature festival of IIT-Bombay will provide an opportunity to contribute towards this end.

The smart city challenge is a unique initiative to engage the youth in the development of their city and prosperity of its citizens. Techfest is slated for January 2-4 at the Powai campus here.

“It aims at providing a strong sharing platform and offers a unique opportunity to get involved in the development of smart cities to exchange ideas and foster the new integrated approaches in India,” Techfest spokesperson Aman Mantry said.

Techfest is associated with many government organisations like Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority, City and Industrial Development Corporation of Maharashtra and Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor Development Corporation (DMICDC).

Mantry said that ideas presented by the participants shall be considered for implementation in the development of new smart cities along the DMICDC, a Central government undertaking.
