Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav celebrations were inaugurated by the Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi on 12 March 2021 which marked a 75- week countdown to the 75th Anniversary of our independence on 15 August 2022 and will continue a year thereafter until 15 August 2023. To this end, the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA) including various divisions and departments, participated keenly in organizing events both iconic and impactful in the run-up to the three-day Azadi@75 Conference-cumExpo from 5 - 7 October 2021. Ideas ensconcing the ‘whole of government’ approach, people’s participation, our rich cultural heritage, innovations and future aspirations were implemented through vibrant, large-scale activities commemorating the 75th year of independence. Following the success of these activities MoHUA is turning up the fervor a notch by organizing 30 pre-events that will culminate in a grand finale at the ‘Smart Cities, Smart Urbanization’ event in Surat on 4 - 5 February 2022. The pre-events will reflect either one or more of the five themes - Freedom Struggle, Actions@75, Achievements@75, Ideas@75 and Resolve@75. The events are designed to bring the nation together through activities that celebrate the spirit, strength and aspirations of citizens in urban India. This brochure captures the essence of each of the pre-events and the main event, presenting highlights to motivate readers to join in and celebrate ‘Smart Cities, Smart Urbanization’ with MoHUA!
