By following previously conducted studies by various researchers, private corporations, and public offices around the globe, people have found out various loopholes not only regarding the ground aspects of a failing system but also the somewhat manipulated officials who generally short come in fulfilling their duties toward a continuous development and modifications to our cities. Even though, every annual budget highlights the capital investment made for the growth of various services fabricated for a city, I am still unable to provide an impact for the public, which results in an overall failure of our master plan to provide for a better living of the public. In this paper, I focused on the facts and hurdles that an administration faces while trying to deliver smart services to develop a smart city. In that framework, I included six of the most essential domains that have already been introduced in two major smart cities in India which can effectively contribute in the enhancement of currently developing models of smart city which were used by those two cities earlier. Altogether, I elaborated how each component has proved its worth in either one or both the cities and integrate it into a new developed model. Using the devices which used the concepts of things based on Internet, I formed conclusion regarding how a city can be upgraded into a smart city taking the lessons from two of the already declared smart cities, Jaipur (JAI) and New Delhi (DEL).
