The area based development is the key element of the Jaipur Smart City proposal (SCP). The idea is to take a compact area of the city for sustainable and inclusive development creating the model ecosystem which will act as source of inspiration to rest of city. The 3 important factors which were thought, debated and considered while narrowing down to an area were Smart Heritage and Tourism Precinct, Smart Mobility, Smart and Sustainable Civic Infrastructure.
The chosen area for area based development ultimately narrowed down to the walled city of Jaipur. This area comes under ward No 74, 84 and part portion of ward No 57. This is a compact area covering an area of 600 acres. If one has known Jaipur the chosen area is two chowkries, on either side of the axis between BadiChauper and ChotiChauper. This has been further extended to include Albert Museum, Ram Niwas Bagh, and entire east west axis, extending up toZurawar Singh Gate. The area under Area Based Development defines the unique heritage of Jaipur and includes most of the jaipur’s famous monuments on tourist and shoppers circuit. There are 34 major projects planned under ABD which will change the face of walled city of Jaipur.
