Cities of Delhi

India’s capital is marked by different settlement types, defined by diverse degrees of formality, legality, and tenure. As part of a larger project on urban transformation in India, Cities of Delhi seeks to carefully document the degree to which access to basic services varies across different types of settlement, and to better understand the nature of that variation.The project aims to examine how the residents of the city interact with their elected representatives, state agencies, and other agents in securing public services.

Cities of Delhi has received funding from Brown University and the Indian Council for Social Science Research.
