“All credit goes to the Bhubaneswar citizens and our Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on whose guidance and efforts we have achieved such a feat. Bhubaneswar has become a world class city and it is likely to receive adequate investments and tourist attention,” said Anant Narayan Jena, Mayor, Bhubaneswar Municipality Corporation.

Bhubaneswar was one of the top six finalists under the Innovative Global South Award category. Kenya’s capital Nairobi emerged as champion, while Chennai followed the capital of Odisha in 4th position.

Smart cities were shortlisted based on the technologies they are using to resolve urban challenges and how they are improving lives of citizens.
