According to recent news, M Venkaiah Naidu, the new Union Minister for Urban Development and Housing and Poverty Alleviation said that building 100 smart cities in country is the top most priority of his ministry.

The Government plans to lower urban density by building satellite towns and cities that are attractive. Within cities, it is important to provide drainage, better sanitation, waste management, water recycling and wifi facilities for public and commercial areas, he added.
