In partnership with USM’s KRVIA and the French Institute in India; we present the book launch of Smart City in India: Urban Laboratory, Paradigm or Trajectory which draws on ethnographic data from across Indian cities to assess the transformative possibilities and limitations of the Smart City programme in the subcontinent. The tome examines the core infrastructural elements that make up a city and underlines the importance of ensuring that the ‘smart city’ is inclusive.

Dr. Annurag Batra (Entrepreneur, author, Angel investor, TV show host, Founder – exchange4media group, Chairman – BW Businessworld group) will be the Chief Guest for the occasion.

The Book Launch will be followed by a presentation by Des Chateaux en l’air of their project Shelter.
