Nagpur will have to speed up job creation to enhance productivity which, in turn, will give the much-needed push to economic growth, business and industry in Nagpur region. Central idea of the challenge is to seek innovative ideas to set up a mechanism for providing skill development opportunities to youth of Nagpur by using resources made available by Government as well as private sectors.

Recycling, Sanitation and Ecology

As per a 2013 estimate by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), Indians throw out 15,342 tonnes of plastic waste every day, of which about 60% is recycled, most of it in the informal sector. While the recycling rate in India is considerably higher than the global average of 14%, there are still over 6,100 tonnes of plastic which are either landfilled or end up polluting streams or groundwater resources. The Central idea of the challenge is to find innovative but practical solutions to recycling, sanitation and environmental issues of Nagpur region.

Low cost mobility

As we know that the local transportation is the lifeline of any urban area fulfilling the commuting needs of more than half of the population.  It is urgent need of the Nagpur region to have means & modes of transport, ranging from metro trains, local trains, buses, taxis and cabs.

So, new ideas are invited for feasible low-cost mobility solutions which should be fast, environment-friendly and safe at the same time.
