Empowering Cities Through Data

Smart cities are all about getting the right data to the right people at the right time to solve complex urban challenges. With deployment of IoT devices and other methods to ‘sense’ the city, real-time data is increasing every day, offering cities the chance to address these challenges in smarter ways. The Smart Cities Mission-Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs intends to harness this potential through its ‘DataSmart’ Cities Strategy.
