The trend of Smart Cities has fascinated the ambitions of citizens and Governments worldwide. This race has led to the development of huge infrastructures embedded with Hi-tech services for the comfort of city dwellers. In many places, it was observed that the technology was adopted blindly without analyzing the prevailing conditions of the area or the requirements of the population. It resulted in the development of hi-tech ghost towns around the globe. After the completion of such hi-tech townships, policy makers face difficulty attracting occupants. It raises the question of whether to consider such hi-tech projects successful, where technology and environmental realms have attained a level of sanctity but failed to include a human scale.
