To provide smart solutions for the country’s cities, Smart Cities Council India will launch a ‘Smart Cities Readiness Guide for India’ with 100 case studies from various cities. It has invited industry partners to join the consortium and provide inputs for the report.

The organisation is the Indian arm of Smart Cities Council, a global industry coalition to advance smart city development and innovation. It has tied up with Pratap Padode, President, Foundation of Infrastructure Research Studies Training, a think-tank, to launch Smart Cities Council India.

Padode said, “The guide, developed by Indian smart cities' experts using local case studies will enable city leaders and urban planners to understand the comprehensive framework of a smart city and take actionable steps toward major city infrastructure improvements.”

The guide will be published in September 2015 and will focus on providing solutions which can work at municipal body level.

Padode added that the next step will be releasing a financing guide to help municipalities efficiently utilise municipal bonds.
