This is New Delhi, the capital of India. The city has faced an uphill battle with public transit, traffic congestion and a weak power grid throughout the past few decades. And these problems can be seen across multiple cities throughout the country. So,
The Indian government set out to create a trillion dollar plan to fix the cities, But is it really possible to solve these problems, and how will the government turn expectations into a reality? A major problem in Delhi is the lack of public transit. With a population of over 30 million
People, the city’s transportation system is being pushed to its capacity, as more than 70% of the population uses the system. With so many vehicles traveling across the city, the capital is also known for having some of the worst air quality of any city in the world.
Just recently in November of 2021, Delhi recorded its worst air quality in over 5 years. It’s obvious that the city is facing many major problems that will not be very easy to solve. But even as Delhi suffers from issues with air quality and public transit, some of India’s smaller cities
Have been able to balance it out, even with large populations. The city of Bagnaglore is the center of India’s high tech industry, and has been able to offer a luxurious, modern lifestyle for its residents. But the overall goal is for all cities in India to be able to do this, and not
Just the ones who cater to a luxurious lifestyle the general population cannot afford. And this is where the government has decided to step in with the right resources to solve these problems. After understanding the problems that Delhi and other cities in India are facing,
The government has finally made a plan to solve most of these problems with something calle envisioning India 2030. THis bold plan breaks down every problem that the cities access the co9untry are facing, and explains how the government will aim to fix them. The 100 page plan features
Everything from healthcare, to renewable energy, and aims to accomplish everything by 2030. But realistically, what is the rate of each country as a whole? India aims to be one of the biggest worldwide economies by 2025, and operate at a $5 trillion dollar GDP . As of right now,
India;s gdp stands at less than 3 trillion dollars, so they have a long way to go. But the government believes that the investments they are making into infrastructure, and renewable energy will result in their GDP steadily rising throughout the next few years.
With the 2025 gosal being just 3 years away at this point, India’s GDP will have to grow by a substantial rate over the next three years to reach their goal by 2025. WHile the government hopes to nearly double its GDP by 2025, the renewable energy projects in this plan will
Not be completed until 2030. Projects such as the Indian power industry will take more time to develop and executive this plan. And most importantly, India will invest a large amount of money into their public transportation system. One of the biggest projects is something
Called the National Rail Plan. This plan aims to reform India’s current railway system, and make railways more efficient and sustainable. The improvements to the rail system will benefit both the population and economy serving as a line for freight trains and passenger trains. In addition
To all these improvements in the 2030 plan, The government also hopes to improve their power grid. According to reports from statistica, power outages occur multiple times a day in both rural and urban communities throughout the country. The study was taken between 2019 and 2020,
And it helps show the need for major improvements in the power supply line. Earlier this year, New Delhi announced that they had approved a plan to invest 1.6 billion dollars into the power grid and into renewable energy projects. The first improvements will be completed
Sometime this year with the entire project slated for completion within the next 5 years. The government has finally set the groundwork for these cities to thrive in the future, and this new plan aims to tackle some of the major problems these cities have been facing for a very long time.
From public transit, to renewable energy, the 2030 plan will be a staple in the country’s history, and will be looked at as a necessary step to sporting a larger population in years afterward . And India is just one of many other countries developing 2030 and 2040 plans that will allow
Them to be sustainable for the future. Therefore, they are investing trillions of dollars to accomplish most of the goals they have set out in their plans. By 2040, cities across the globe will be more sustainable than ever, and overcome the infrastructure environmental problems
