Moving forward the city is in the process of preparing a Smart City Proposal (SCP) as a requirement to participate in the Smart City Challenge. Under the Smart City Challenge, top 20 cities will be selected from 100 shortlisted cities based on the SCP. The process of SCP preparation would be driven by intense citizen engagement at multiple levels in the city, for which Rajkot Municipal Corporation (RMC) has prepared an extensive Stakeholder Consultation Plan. RMC will carry out three rounds of stakeholder consultations over the period of next two months. RMC has completed the Round 1 consultation where Citizen’s views and suggestions were called for to arrive at City’s Vision and define goals in terms of their aspiration to see their city in next 5,10 or 20 years followed by strategies to achieve these goals. The stakeholders are expected to highlight suggestions/ideas on improvement of city services such as water supply, transportation system, sanitation, housing, health, education, energy, open spaces, air quality, safety and security etc. In the next stage i.e. Round 2 of stakeholder consultations, which will be carried out during the month of October, RMC will seek similar kind of feedback from citizens on area development and pan city smart solutions.
