Urbanization is not only associated with economic development but over the time it started aspiring people to better quality of life. Cities are seen as solutions for boosting economy, generating employment, creating skills, providing better health services and many more things. Expression of change from being habitat to providing such breadth of services was not brought in a day; cities have eventually developed into these dimensions. However, the state of urban service delivery in India’s cities and towns is far poorer than is desirable for India’s current income levels. Considering that the Indian economy has been one of the fastest growing economies in the world for some time, and aspirations and standards are raising, the current state of service delivery is simply unacceptable. Moreover, a successful city cannot operate efficiently in isolation from its environment. It must balance social, economic and environmental needs. Smart Cities focus on their most pressing needs and on the greatest opportunities to improve lives. They tap a range of approaches – digital and information technologies, urban planning best practices, public private partnerships, and policy change – to make a difference. They always put people first. During this course on Smart Cities Planning and Development, Let’s understand the dynamics of an Indian city and learn smart ways to plan, management and maintain our cities.
