    Diu is a beautiful tourist place for travelers. Although there are several good resorts and hotels, the nagwa beach has to be beatified and we need to have excellent hospitals and schools and colleges.

    Transportation from major and nearby cities also is the need of the hour.

    To establish Diu as an attractive tourist destination, one needs to create a distinctive identity and true to its nature, ‘isle de calma’ is its true identity. And nothing endorses this identity better than a bicycle. To be truly smart, what diu needs is a permanent bike share system. The successful pilot currently being undertaken by us on the sideline of ‘Festa de diu’ has clearly established the need and its time administration scales it up.

    Need a specific plan and implementation for execution of all project activities for a smart city. Need public transport such as overhead bullet trains in order to avoid traffic jams in the heart of the city areas.

    Need basic amenities such as good schools, hospitals, safety measures, job opportunities, good hotels, restaurants, recreations and children’s parks.

    Also needs to be well connected to main cities of the state and other cities.

    Is there any central guidelines provided by the government that should be implemented as bare minimum for the city to be called a smart city? Where can I find such information? It seems to be that every city is making its own plans and as a result loosing out on economies of scope.

    1) Diu is very good,nice & descent places. required proper connectivity via road,train & seaway. due to increase tourism & business hub. 2) good smart city means required good job opportunities so required offices related local & global jobs.3) naturally very good environment also required some animal park & enjoyment water park. their is available old structures etc. it’s good for tourism attraction. thank you.
