The vision of the proposal is to improve the quality of life of citizens through innovative and inclusive solutions by focusing on heritage and tourism. Major goals of the proposal involve smart multi-modal mobility; smart heritage and tourism; smart and sustainable civic infrastructure; and solid waste management.
The area based development under the component of Smart Mobility states provision of walk ability and ensuring barrier-free access. The proposal is converged with AMRUT Scheme which aims at providing safe road infrastructure for persons with disabilities. The essential features also highlight 100% coverage of barrier-free footpaths, universal access to public transport and raised pedestrian crossings for non-motorized transportation.
The pan-city solutions fail to incorporate provisions for persons with disabilities. They will be excluded from the usage of public engagement platforms and mobile applications like heritage apps. Digital Inclusion for persons with disabilities has been neglected in the proposal with the focus only on the aspect of mobility.
