Urbanization in India grew by leaps and bounds during the last decade. Several studies indicate that Indian cities may contribute up to 70% of the country’s GDP by 2030. These urban centers, if not planned and managed carefully, can lead to inefficiencies, congestion, and resource conflict. Some services like water, sanitation, sewerage, and transportation have already become impediments to urban growth.
According to High Powered Expert Committee (HPEC), India will require an investment of approximately ₹39.2 lakh crore until 2030 for adequate urban infrastructure. Of this, 44% has been allocated for roads, 20% for water, sewerage, solid waste management, storm water drains and streetlights.
