Image Alignment 580x300

Why Chosen - Addressing Pune’s mobility challenge is critical since it came as most critical issue in both citizen engagement and desk profile.

  • Increase in public transportation usage from 15% to 30% by adding options of public transport (like metro, BRT) and enhancing current options (e.g. 3000 buses)
  • Increase in trip share of NMT to at least 30% with bicycles and walking as preferred mode of transport
  • Both public transportation and NMT usage will help Punekars in improving mobility by increasing average speed from 18 kmph to 30 kmph

Key ideas

    A - Smart Pune Public Transport System to improve availability, reliability and passenger comfort
  • Vehicle health monitoring system (VMS) across ~1080 buses with intelligent kits and back-end maintenance management system
  • Real-time tracking of 100% buses (VTS) by installing GPS and setting up a central control room, to monitor driving quality and service levels
  • CCTV surveillance and panic buttons on 510 buses to improve security
  • Public information system (PIS) comprising of bus guides and LED screens depicting ETA and other critical information across all 190 bus-stops and ~510 buses, along with mobile app and website providing real-time information
  • In-bus entertainment through Wi-Fi in 510 buses
    B- ‘Smart Pune Traffic Management System’ to reduce congestion
  • Adaptive traffic signals across 295 signals with central command center, also equipped with ‘pedestrian buttons’ and PIS
  • Smart parking across 7 Multi-level-car-parks, with PIS and real-time mobile app
  • Private bus aggregators as rBus and Shuttl to provide premium bus options
  • Intelligent road asset management to improve road condition (using GIS)
  • Traffic mobile apps and online portal with live and forecasted traffic
  • Traffic analysis using CCTV feed and mobile GPS

Why Chosen - Capitalising on Pune’s water abundance, one of key goals will be to ensure at least 150 lpcd of water to 100% of citizens on 24x7 basis.

    Impact expected - The specific goals in water and sewerage will be
  • 100% of citizens receiving 24X7 150 lpcd water
  • Reduction in leakage and NRW from 30% to 15%
  • Increase in reservoir storage capacity from 23% to 33%
  • 100% of city covered by sewage network (compared to 91.3% now)
  • 100% of waste water treated (up from 73%), and use of recycled water by industries, railways and the construction

Key ideas

    A - ‘Smart Water’ solutions to ensure equitable 150 lpcd water to 100% citizens on 24x7 basis along with best-in-class customer experience
  • Smart bulk metering at 8 WTP’s, 58 elevated reservoirs and 328 DMA’s across 6 zones with SCADA, followed by water audit across 2500 km pipeline
  • Helium leak identification system to reduce internal water leakage drastically
  • 100% smart metering across 42,650 commercial connections
  • Smart meters for domestic consumption along with revised telescoping tariffs through “give-up-water subsidy” campaign to accept smart metering and revised telescoping tariffs
  • 24x7 water supply to the city through 5 pilot DMA’s which includes 2000 domestic, 300 commercial and 2000 slum connections
  • Comprehensive GIS-based customer survey to increase the number of recorded connections from 150,000 to 400,000
  • Develop a suite of web, app and call-centre based solutions to address 37,000 grievances annually
  • Setup an ICT enabled separate billing and recovery department for water with world class customer service and improved collections
