About the Workshop
India’s Smart Cities Mission (SCM) was launched by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs in 2015 to improve infrastructure, enhance service delivery, and meet sustainability and inclusivity goals through institutional and technological innovations. Over the last seven years, the SCM has been gradually implemented in 100 Indian cities, with varied experiences and trajectories.
As the SCM approaches its end in June 2023, this workshop aims to take stock of the mission, bring together varied strands of recent scholarship and to engage in a dialogue with policy makers. Presentations cover multiple facets of the SCM outlined in the call for papers.
