Smart City is a national program launched by the Ministry Of Housing and Urban Development (MOHURD) that aims to develop the management of cities with the help of IT. Its management model includes various aspects, such as energy and resources, transportation and consumption, traffic, safety and security, health and learning. The major challenge faced is the integration of technological infrastructure in newly built cities. In 2013, 193 cities took part in the program.
