NEW DELHI: Three areas in Delhi would be taken up as models for developing the capital as a smart city. Government sources said Delhi Development Authority (DDA) has suggested a Lake City in Mayur Vihar-II, development of a land patch in Karkardooma in eastern part of the city and a greenfield project in outer Delhi. 

The DDA has suggested the areas at a meeting that was attended by a delegation from Spanish government led by minister of trade Jaime Gracia-Legaz Ponce. Sources, who did not wish to be named, said Spanish government has shown keen interest to associate itself with making Delhi a smart city.

According to sources, the two brown field projects in east Delhi would fall under the plan of developing Transit-Oriented Development zones. TOD zones break away from the conventional model of city growth by creating a pedestrian-centric, open space where public transport is encouraged and every need from parks to hospitals and schools to groceries are brought within walking distance of one's home. The Karkardooma smart city island will come up on 2.8 lakh sqm area while Lake City in Mayur Vihar will cover 80,000 sqm. TOI has learnt that DDA has said the greenfield smart city would be developed in an area of 20,000 hectares in outer Delhi.
