Abstract

A smart city makes use of ICT in order to manage its resources efficiently and therefore provide a lot of new kinds of services that help in improving the quality of life of its citizens. A smart village employs both technological and non-technological solutions to fulfil the basic needs of the village people like education, health, economic growth, and food security. In India, many initiatives for the development of smart cities and smart villages have been started in recent years. While some of these initiatives are implemented successfully, others are taking their pace. This chapter describes the essential elements of smart cities and smart villages. Both technological and non-technological solutions are required for the development of Indian smart cities and villages. The chapter also highlights the issues and challenges that need to be overcome for sustainable development and digital transformation of cities and villages.
