Abstract

In India as per the census 2011, 68.84% of the total population live in villages or rural areas, and out of 6,00,000 villages, 1,25,000 villages are undeveloped so there is a need for the emerging concept of the smart village for the redesigning and advance tech-supported building these villages. Lack of employment and infrastructural services in Indian villages leads to severe migration from villages to cities. Thus the need for ‘Ideation of smart village’ in the current scenario seems to be more important as consistent migration from villages to cities is resulting in the form of concrete jungles. The present challenges in Indian villages can be addressed with the modern infrastructural solution available. And hence approach for developing a smart village will be precisely focused on availing the necessary services required. Also, the primary aim of this study is to preserve the original characteristics of Indian villages. The most appropriate method to build a Smart village is to identify the locally available practical solutions for the problems. Adopting the methodology of traditional village planning supported with modern technology available in the form of ICT and IoT will result in the development of a smart village which will not only be sustainable but also self-dependent. The study proposes the smart innovation supported by the local parameters for Indian villages. There will be practical recommendations for having a better infrastructural service for villages. The results from this study may be replicated by other villages of India who are also facing similar planning problems.
