For Cities selected in Round 1 (January 2016), where 18 months have lapsed, about 51% of the projects have either been tendered or under implementation. In Round 2& 3, nearly all the cities have set up SPVs.

(c): Under Smart Cities Mission, the Central and State / Urban Local Body share is Rs. 500 crore each per city. An amount of Rs. 9,939.20 crores has, so far, been released by Government of India to States for Smart Cities. The cities have identified 3,012 projects worth Rs. 1,38,984 crores for implementation. Out of which, 753 projects worth Rs. 24,511.49 crores have been completed or under implementation; tendering has started for 287 projects worth Rs. 14,296 crores. City wise details of the progress of the implementation is given at Annexure-I.
