Databook for 53 Million Plus Cities
It will contain data on various urban sectors and a comparative assessment of the 53 million-plus cities. To collect data, 290 RTI applications were sent to the water boards and Municipal Corporations. So far, 110 responses have been received from municipal corporations across water supply, sewerage, solid waste management, urban transport, and municipal finance. Data relating to Urban Safety and Migration parameters have been sourced from the National Crime Records Bureau and Census respectively. Data relating to Urban Housing is being sourced from the Census reports. The next step will be to process all the data points and use tools and techniques to present the finding info-graphically.
The publication is due in November end/early December 2016.
