The smart city advantage in numbers

It is rightly said that ‘numbers speak for themselves’. Numbers are factually correct and accurate as well. By assessing numbers, we can measure the impact or magnitude of anything. We make a lot of choices based on numbers. If a bank is providing a higher interest rate on fixed deposit as compared to another bank, we choose the former. Every decision we make is in some way or the other influenced by numbers.
Choosing to purchase a home in a smart city over purchasing any ordinary home in any residential complex is based strictly on numbers. If you keep aside your likes and dislikes, there is no way that a residential area can score a point over smart cities. Jotted below are a few statistics and percentages, simply numbers that show how beneficial it is or you and the society to reside in smart cities-
30% more residents-
Wouldn’t it be great if a certain area can reside 30% more people that it actually resides right now? That’s possible with a smart city. Immaculate planning of infrastructure and allows better structuring, eventually leading to utility of lesser absolute space for the creation of 30% more houses! That, without compromising on the spaciousness of the house.
25% resource savings-
We all use electricity, water, gas etc. We all need them on a daily basis. What if you can use the same amount of these resources, but in the due process save a considerable percentage of it? That’s again possible in a smart city! With methodological usage and constant distribution, united resources are consumed less, without any less consumption of actual resources.
15% lesser traffic-

Smart city infrastructure assures wider roads, close proximity of essential services and nearby travelling hubs. All these assure that you face 15% lesser traffic while going to any place!
