Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

With several Smart City development projects scheduled for completion in 2021; Indore being one of them, is set for rapid transformation. Intelligent city management systems for governance and service delivery, including intelligent transport systems, smart waste management and robust information technology connectivity, will improve urban services, quality of life and employment opportunities. It also will open up tremendous investment and growth opportunities across several sectors. Growth will be augmented by leveraging Indore’s commercial strengths and cultural heritage, and responding appropriately to concerns of inclusiveness and sustainability.

“Indore is emerging as a modern commercial capital of the state from a traditional trade and commerce center,” said Sriramya Malladi, Senior Consulting Analyst, Public Sector Practice, Frost & Sullivan. “Development and investment in the super corridor, information technology parks, med-cities, and nearby industrial areas are expected to provide new employment and growth opportunities in the region.
