Role of Smart Cities in Urbanization of Haryana : A Case Study

Authors(1) :-Dr. Balwan Singh

Though a boon, urbanization also brings along with it several challenges that can act as a barrier to growth achieved over a period of time. It is a proven fact, that the trend has a straight correlation with growth. However, if not efficiently managed, it can lead to a negative proposition. In the recent past, Haryana has seen a natural progression in its development story, with its villages turning into towns, and towns transforming into cities. Now, the time has arrived for the state to transform its cities into smart cities and achieve vision of smart urbanization.
