Summary "This book is a critical reflection on the Smart City Mission in India. Drawing on ethnographic data from across Indian cities, this volume assesses the transformative possibilities and limitations of the programme. It examines the ten core infrastructural elements that make up a city, including water, electricity, waste, mobility, housing, environment, health and education, and lays down the basic tenets of urban policy in India. The volume underlines the need to recognize liminal spaces and the plans to make the 'smart city' an inclusive one. The authors also look at maintaining a link between the older heritage of a city and the emerging urban space. This volume will be of great interest to planners, urbanists, policymakers, as well as scholars and researchers of urban studies and planning, architecture, and sociology and social anthropology"-- Provided by publisher
