India to build 24 Green Cities

India has announced that it plans to construct 24 green cities as part of the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor development. The project, which is in development with Japan, is said to be worth 90 billion US dollars. It is an upgrade of nine industrial zones, and of India's high-speed freight line, six airports and three ports.

The green cities are being designed to boost the country's infrastructure in the smaller towns along the corridor, between Delhi and Mumbai, which covers 1,483 kilometres in length. The cities will include optimized power supplies and a 24 hour water supply, which is an improvement, as cities and towns in India endure electricity and water shortages.

Japan is expected to offer it's energy efficient technologies in order to make the green cities as sustainable as possible. The cities are also expected to include waste and water recycling plants.
