Ever since the IT boom transformed Bengaluru, the landscape of Electronics City has changed and how. But while development has taken place rapidly, so have problems and civic issues, and the area constantly struggles to balance development and environmental sustainability.

To mark the occasion of World Environment Day on June 5, the Electronics City Industrial Township Authority (ELCITA) has launched a competition seeking inputs regarding township development from citizens across India.

In a bid to make informed choices and garner valuable inputs from citizens, ELCITA had organised a competition to seek inputs from citizens to improve their township.

The winning entry will get a cash prize of Rs 25,000. Interested participants have to record a 3-minute explainer video of the concept and submit it by June 10th.

They also have to upload the video on Instagram and tag ELCITA. A link to the video has to be shared at Diese E-Mail-Adresse ist vor Spambots geschützt!

Entries will be marked out of 100 points: 40 points for a unique solution that should focus on innovation and transformation, 30 points for a solution that is original and innovative in approach, and 30 points for a solution being practical which can also be implemented within 6-12 months.

The challenge is open to all Indian nationals but the pitch must focus on innovation and transformation. Winners will be judged by a jury comprising industry experts and cash prizes will be awarded.

The winning entry gets Rs 25,000, the runner-up an amount of Rs 15,000, and the second runner-up will get Rs 10,000. All top 10 finalists will be awarded a certificate of recognition.

CEO of ELCITA, Ravindra Singh said, “The competition is aimed at bringing new ideas in terms of a smart city, sustainability, solving any issues being faced in Electronics City. Normally, citizens don’t take part in governance and we wanted to create aa platform for citizens to take part easily. We are looking for revolutionary ideas that will transform Electronics City forever.

“We keep getting suggestions for adding green cover, better walking spaces, etc. We are looking at various concepts to improve governance in this part of Bengaluru.”

We have done some good work in smart city space and now we are looking at upping the ante by implementing decision-making systems. We will incorporate changes based on feedback from citizens, he added.
