Persis Taraporevala and Ankit Bhardwaj, both research associates at CPR, have conducted extensive research on the Smart Cities Mission across multiple states - both through empirical research of 60 Indian cities combined with intensive fieldwork across four cities.

In this episode of CPR’s podcast, Richa Bansal talks to Taraporevala and Bhardwaj as they draw on their research to contextualise and unpack the Mission and what being 'smart' means for different cities.
