Abstract

Smart City, as this chapter proves, is the one that adapts to its dynamic structural changes in the economy within a shortest possible time without causing pitfalls. Vijayawada–Guntur–Mangalagiri–Tenali (VGTM) area, which has been identified as the capital region of the newly created state of Andhra Pradesh with its capital Amaravati in Guntur District, is fast adjusting to this structural change and plans to bring in technology to boost its economic dynamism. From that of a ‘rice bowl’, the region is transforming itself into a major service sector region, servicing not only the region, but is emerging as a major node in the eastern coast.
