The Wait is Over! Here is the the List of 98 Smart Cities of India.

Smart City‘ is an initiative by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to take the pressure off Indian metros. Ahead of general election last year, Modi had promised 100 smart cities by 2022 to help meet the rush.

In July last year (2014), the Smart City vision was announced by Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley during the first Union Budget of NDA government. India has allocated nearly Rs 6000 crore for development of these smart cities.
