Urban areas are integral to India’s growth and development, accounting for around two-thirds of the country’s GDP. Analysing India’s rapidly expanding process of urbanisation, the book identifies the key challenges and opportunities and proposes suitable managerial and policy reforms. It addresses critical issues and puts forth suggestions for better planning financing alternatives and, most importantly, better governance for improved service delivery and affordable housing. Divided thematically into three sections, the volume takes into account the important facets of urbanisation, including the state of urban infrastructure and planning in India with due attention to sustainability, the role of finance in urban development and its dependence on governance, and  methods to generate good governance in public institutions, and the impact on housing and climate change.
The 11 essays included in this book have been written by leading analysts and practitioners, who propose critical reforms and policy interventions. The volume will be indispensable to students and scholars of urban economics, development studies, urban planning, business practitioners, policymakers as well as the informed general reader.

About the Author:

Isher Judge Ahluwalia is Chairperson of the Board of the Indian Council for Research on International Economic Relations (ICRIER), a leading think tank based in New Delhi. She was Chairperson of the High Powered Expert Committee (HPEC) on Urban Infrastructure and Services (2008–2011), which submitted its Report to the Government of India in March 2011. Dr Ahluwalia is currently leading a major Research and Capacity Building Programme on the Challenges of Urbanisation in India at ICRIER. She received her PhD from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), MA (Economics) from Delhi School of Economics and BA (Economics) from Presidency College, Kolkata. She has published a number of books and articles in professional journals on subjects such as macroeconomic implications of food and foreign exchange constraints, factors affecting industrial growth and productivity, and issues with regard to social sector development in India. For the past few years, her research is focused on the challenges of urbanisation.

Review:

A most welcome contribution to the literature precisely because it shines the light on the non-financial challenges to sustainable urbanization.

(Business Standard)

A welcome addition to the literature...an extremely well produced product.

(Business Standard)

The book offers observations on a diverse number of issues and it does so in an insightful manner...all authors focus on exploring remedies rather than merely dissecting the problem...the book throws light on some aspects that we must start addressing immediately...performs the unpleasant yet required task of awakening its readers to reality.

(Businessworld)

The present volume on India’s urbanisation is timely and welcome...every paper is both analytical and practical...for anybody with an interest or responsibility in India’s urban affairs the book has a great deal to offer.... A very valuable contribution to the current discourse on strengthening urban institutions and policy in India.

(Economic & Political Weekly)

The book argues for a greater role of the city government in the growth of the city, the need for more investment in capacity building and infrastructure development and the need to involve the people of a locality more in governance.

(The Tribune, 15 June 2014)
