The unceasing growth of population and urbanisation has created a need for innovative ways to handle urbanisation with minimal impact on the environment, citizen lifestyle and governance. This is evident as there is a significant increase of 33% in the annual migrant population in Delhi — the highest in 15 years — leading to air pollution, traffic congestion and failure in solid waste management. To manage these challenges, it is imperative to employ modern technology.
In this paper, we aim to highlight the various urban issues and challenges faced by Delhi. We intend to leverage our expertise of delivering solutions to smart cities and throw light on certain international best practices which may be replicated to develop Delhi as a sustainable economic hub.
