India's demographic structure in terms of rural urban population is undergoing a rapid change. The size of urban population and the number of cities and townships are on the increase and so is the case with regard to the problems and challenges faced by our urban territories giving rise to the complexities of governance. Population explosion on the one hand and the issues of crumbling infrastructure, lack of basic amenities, unemployment and poverty, solid waste management, pollution, water, sanitation, health etc. on the other have attracted the attention of not only the political class but also of the academics, planners, researchers and social activists all over the world. The cities, it is said, are becoming problematic, exclusive and ungovernable in India too. The government of India brought 74th amendment to the Indian constitution so as to enable the urban local bodies to function as local self government in order to ensure effective, efficient, responsive, participative and corruption free government to the people at the grassroots level. The state governments have also initiated, accordingly, structural, functional and programmatic measures to improve urban government and governance. The present volume is primarily of based on the proceedings of national seminar attempt to examine and analyse these central and state level initiatives sponsored by the UGC in November 2006 and is an aiming at improving the life conditions of the urban inhabitants in terms of their efficacy and impact. It is an incisive analysis of the Theory and Practice of Urban Governance. The book should be of immense value and reference for the teachers and researchers of urban local administration in colleges and universities as well as provide inputs for urban development policies and decision making in future mechanism of urban governance.
