Product description


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.


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)
