Gujarat's ultra-modern city GIFT to roll out in Gandhinagar
Work on the proposed Rs 78,000-crore nano city Gujarat
International Finance Tec-City (GIFT) has now started in
Gandhinagar. The project is Modi's dream project and is expected to
have the first occupant move in by March. The first phase is to be
completed in 3.5 years.
GIFT would have a command and control centre to monitor the IT
infrastructure and for a quick automated emergency response system.
The city will have an energy-efficient district cooling system
called District cooling, which uses chilled water to cool
buildings, and is being tried in places like Toronto, Cornell
University and Masdar City in Abu Dhabi. It is believed to consume
90% less energy compared with traditional air-conditioning.
The city will also have an automated vacuum waste collection
systems, in which garbage is sorted out and then sucked away at
high speed through underground tubes to a central location, which
can be as far as 20 km away. It is being used in cities such as
London, Montreal, Stockholm and Barcelona. Automated waste
collection can be combined with biomass energy generation systems,
so GIFT will burn waste to generate energy.
With technologies like this, GIFT is going to become a model city
which other Indian cities will emulate. The stock exchanges of
London, Tokyo and Singapore have evinced interest in setting up
offices in GIFT, and so have many Indian banks.
