National mission launched to create digital infra in urban India

National mission launched to create digital infra in urban India

New Delhi, Feb 24 (UNI) The Narendra Modi government has launched a National Urban Digital Mission (NUDM) that will create a shared digital infrastructure for urban India, working across the three pillars of people, process, and platform to provide holistic support to cities and towns.
It will institutionalise a citizen-centric and ecosystem-driven approach to urban governance and service delivery in 2022 cities by 2022, and across all cities and towns in India by 2024.
Urban Affairs Minister Hardeep Singh Puri, launching the mission on Tuesday, said NUDM will create the ideal space to harness immense synergies from the domain of urban and technology towards creating a citizen-centric governance that reflects Prime Minister Modi’s vision of 'minimum government and maximum governance'.
It would enhance the capacity of every city and town to serve citizens, build partnerships, and solve local problems locally.
Information Technology Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said that an important message of the NUDM launch is that convergence is integral to good governance through a digital mode.
He said that cities will become smarter only if digital technology is properly leveraged.
The event also saw the launch of other initiatives such as the India Urban Data Exchange (IUDX), SmartCode, Smart Cities 2.0 website, and Geospatial Management Information System (GMIS).
These initiatives are among the ongoing efforts of both Ministries to realise the Prime Minister’s vision of Digital India and AtmaNirbhar Bharat, by making cities more self-reliant and enabled to meet the needs of and provide services to their citizens, said an urban affairs ministry statement.
