VISION STATEMENT: “LUDHIANA CITY IN 2025- PROVIDING ENHANCED QUALITY OF LIFE TO CITIZENS ALONG WITH ACCELERATED GROWTH AND SUSTAINED PROSPERITY”
The proposal delivers smartest practices in the most geographically, economically and socially impactful area of the city. The pilot area would exemplify a model bicycle city for the rest of the country. An incremental shift from current situation to smart living is emphasized given that the present way of living or mobility is not likely to change overnight. The issues addresses through the proposal include - congestion, pollution, safety, deteriorating health etc. aligning the proposed initiatives with the strategic vision to make Ludhiana the most bicycle friendly city and making bicycling culturally popular. The proposal covers infrastructure improvements to promote walkability, bicyclability & healthy living.
Two ideas proposed are:
1. GPS enabled ‘Smart’ E-Rickshaws to replace diesel auto rickshaws over the next 5 years.
2. Building upon ongoing project of GIS enabled system to levy property tax.
