dc.description.abstractIn this study, we describe several of the fundamental pillars that define smart cities in India, using Ajmer, Allahabad, and Visakhapatnam (Vizag) as examples. First, we establish additional context behind these efforts and provide a critical appraisal of previous government programs centered on urbanization, including the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JnNURM). We describe the central role of local governments in spearheading future changes across India, including the continued devolution of fiscal responsibility and authority. In particular, states and municipalities throughout India have varied widely in their implementation of the 74th Constitutional Amendment Act, which was designed to improve local governance. Across the public and private sectors, in turn, a wide range of institutional and financial factors must be weighed carefully when accelerating Smart City improvements in years to come.
