List of cities which could finally make it to 20 smart city list

Central government recently announced 98 cities that would be considered for the final list of cities to be transformed to smart city.

The current list of cities has 12 and 2 cities from UP and Haryana respectively.

The cities are now paid 2 crore each to work on a master plan based on which they will be ascertained for final selection of 20 cities to be developed starting 2015-2016. The final selection will happen in September this year.

Politics however is going to be the key while coming up with final list of UP cities with UP elections just one and a half year away.

From Delhi NCR, Ghaziabad and Faridabad are most likely expected to make the cut. BJP’s presence in these cities is most likely to reap benefit.
For rest of the cities in UP, central government would try to choose the ones that most likely could stimulate public opinion about BJP.

We bring to you the current list of cities shared by UP and Haryana government for final consideration along with those that are expected to make the cut:

UP nominations:

1. Moradabad
2. Aligarh
3. Shaharanpur
4. Bareilly
5. Jhansi
6. Kanpur: Our guess, it will make it to the final list of 20 smart cities
7. Allahabad
8. Lucknow
9. Varanasi: Our guess, it will make it to the final list of 20 smart cities
10. Ghaziabad: Our guess, it will make it to the final list of 20 smart cities
11. Agra: Our guess, it will make it to the final list of 20 smart cities
12. Rampur
13. Rai Bareilly/Meerut (to be finalized as they shared equal points)

      Could be. In that case, Ghaziabad or Kanpur may be the loser.
