About India Readiness Guide
The India Readiness Guide has over 400 pages and total of fourteen chapters. There are more than 80 relevant case studies, with half of them focusing on the Indian context as well as some providing a global perspective. Case studies cited include those from Pune, Delhi, Kolkata, Surat, Jabalpur, Hyderabad, Indore etc.
The Smart Cities India Readiness Guide is envisioned to help local governments and municipalities build an action plan for smart cities in India. The India Readiness Guide gives a comprehensive ‘vision’ of a smart city, to help understand how technology will transform the cities and how people will contribute in enhancing and realising the transformation.
The Readiness Guide explores the current environment and drivers of smart cities in India, and takes a holistic look at the current supporting government missions. And, then it discusses some of the barriers cities may face and benefits smart cities will bring.
The initial chapters focus on introductory, universal aspects, identifying various key responsibilities – the day-to-day services that the cities provide. A dedicated chapter deals with citizen reporting, partnership, and engagement and assists in realizing the smart cities vision. And then there are individual chapters about each responsibility, such as water, transportation, public safety, etc., which are illustrated by supporting case studies.
The Smart Cities Framework captures the relationship between a city’s responsibilities (what it needs to accomplish for citizens) and its enablers (the smart technologies that can make those tasks easier and smart citizen engagement that can make those implementations more inclusive). Then it outlines a series of objectives that, taken together, form the foundation of a citizen-centric, ICT-enabled smart city.
The Guide is available at no cost to members of the Smart Cities Council. If you have not yet joined, please take a moment to complete a one-time registration.

To provide smart cities with water infrastructure systems, Hitachi is promoting its intelligent water system concept for integrating water treatment systems with information and control systems for the efficient utilization of recycled water.
The government of India has launched an ambitious and transformational scheme to develop 100 Smart Cities. These smart cities will be enabled by a number of smart solutions including those targeted to infrastructure, energy, transport, utilities, environmental sustainability, and communication. Government and civic authorities are key enablers for significant portions of civic and administrative infrastructure, utilities, and public amenities. However, individuals, private building owners, and businesses can also contribute by making private and public buildings smarter. After all, the smarter the buildings, the smarter the city will be.
The main goal for a Smart Sustainable City is to enhance the quality of life of the citizens across multiple, interrelated dimensions, including the provision and access to water resources, energy, transportation and mobility, education, environment, waste management, housing and livelihoods, utilising ICTs as the key medium.
The purpose of this Compendium is to provide policy makers, academicians, industry and all other stakeholders interested in 'Smart Cities' a collection of different types of resources pertaining to smart cities. It is a supplementary resource document to CSTEP's report titled Reconceptualising Smart Cities: A Reference Framework for India, which contains resources collected between August 2014 and August 2015.
The consultants which are appointed are a mix of Indian and foreign firms, which include the likes of AECOM India, Alia Consulting, Mahindra Consulting Engineers, Feedback Infra, Jones Lang La Salle, ICRA, Haskoning DHV Consulting, IIDC, Voyants Solutions, Price Waterhouse Coopers, Crisil, McKinsey, Dorsh Holding GmbH and Data World.
By 2050, about 70 per cent of the population of India would be living in cities. With this population shift, the need of the hour is Smart Cities that would support urban lifestyles. The Essel Group has chartered its journey to take the opportunity by developing India's futuristic smart cities that will improve the quality of life through enhanced master planning and effective service delivery. It understands that private sector participation in developing Smart Cities will ensure efficiency and service quality in the times to come.
Cities are expecting dramatic population growth and so it will need new and intelligent infrastructure to meet the needs of their citizens and businesses. The water provided by the Aurangabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) is not sufficient for the use of citizen. In this project we have only considered the water resources available in the different area only in the Aurangabad city. All resources are mapped in the Google map using KML platform. The research also deals with providing a graphical view for the availability of ground water resources of the Aurangabad city in contour form which can provide a way to study their features. The groundwater flow model for the study area was formulated by using input data, such as the location of water resources and appropriate boundary conditions.
