Maharashtra has to have an integrated plan for new smart cities. These cities are not existing towns or cities in the making in Maharashtra but villages that will be planned as new cities. The creation of new and completely planned cities will done by bringing in industries, business opportunities to facilitate employment, growth and entertainment. This will help us reduce overflow into our already burgeoning cities.
Strong roads equal to strong and rich Maharashtra! In the last many years, more money has been spent on maintenance rather than creating new roads. A major rehaul of the state transport system is needed in the rural areas. Freight corridors from villages to commercial cities to ensure smooth business, interconnecting five lane highways and creation of more Expressways is a must for business and tourism.
Rural Maharashtra – be it farmers, those living in smaller towns and villages — must have be able access power at reasonable rates. Solar and Renewable energy is a big source of power generation and Maharashtra is found to have the best irradiation in India, a climatic condition that aids renewable energy production. We must make the most of this and ensure we are planning more plants and electricity generating projects in our state.
