Asha

One of the major reasons for lack of housing development in India is non-availability of reliable and efficient housing data which is "smart" in terms of quantity and quality. It has also been observed that cities lack an effective system in place which collates relevant housing information like basic amenities, services and facilities at city level under one umbrella (housing, environment, transport, water, electricity, energy and health). Hence, the idea of a housing data repository that acts as a confluence node for various departments sharing data frequently without data remaining in silos is required for effective and better analysis, understanding and ultimately decision making.

CITYPOINTS

Public spaces cater to a number of urban activities creating an identity and sense of belonging along with a number of social, economic and health benefits. However, how accessible and safe are these spaces and if they are responsive to the needs of users are key questions for the city administration to solve.

Mera Thela

In addition to the challenges that street vendors face from police and civic authorities, there is growing pressure from retail marts and online retail resulting in declining revenues. Street vendors as part of the informal workforce offer easy access to goods at an economical price on a daily basis and hold an advantage of providing much fresher produce than other suppliers. But as the market has evolved and demand has grown over time, they have found it difficult to catch up with disruptive technologies that have come in. To prevent more street vendors from being driven out of market, it was important to attempt a revival of street vendors’ market reach. As there are challenges for customers in accessing street vendors across various locations, integrating vendors with a digital platform can help improve their market reach, thereby improving their revenues.

Once done, the tool instantly delivers an action plan for cities which are implementable, realistic and informs cities what works and what can be worked better in their engagement systems.
