India has emerged as one of the fastest growing economies in the world and is expected to be one of the top three economic powers over the next 10-15 years. The country’s real estate sector alone is expected to reach a market size of $1 trillion by 2030, from $120 billion in 2017, to contribute 13 percent to the country’s GDP by 2025.

The Government of India has collaborated with State governments and at the city-level to undertake several initiatives that would encourage growth in the sector. Under the Smart Cities Mission, the Union government is developing 100 ‘Smart Cities’ to drive economic growth and improve the quality of life for millions of Indians. The primary focus is to enable local development and harness technology as a means to create smart infrastructure for the benefit of citizens. Through this initiative, the Union government hopes to tap into digital and information technologies, urban planning best practices, and public-private partnerships to create an environment conducive for the holistic development of modern urban centers or smart cities.
