The Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA), Government of India, seeks to leverage digital technology and e-governance to address modern India’s urban challenges and enhance ease of-living and -doing business in India’s cities. This endeavour is in alignment with India’s national objectives to promote inclusive and sustainable urban spaces. To accelerate this goal, in February 2021, MoHUA launched the National Urban Digital Mission (NUDM). The objective of NUDM is to build a shared digital infrastructure that will strengthen the capacity of the urban ecosystem to solve complex problems at scale and speed. It is built as a public good and provides the ecosystem actors the foundational digital building blocks, ready-to-use platforms, standards, specifications, and frameworks. The National Institute of Urban Affairs has been nominated as the anchor institution on behalf of MoHUA to operationalize the NUDM. NIUA has set-up the Center for Digital Governance (CDG) to manage the activities under NUDM by enabling collaborative, ecosystem-driven processes. and to serve as the home for all programs and platforms under NUIS. The National Urban Innovation Stack (NUIS) building blocks, built under NUDM, will be available to the entire urban ecosystem supporting development of applications and solutions at scale and speed, creating a virtuous cycle of innovation and co-creation and help strengthen collaboration between citizens, entrepreneurs, academics, administrators, governments, NGOs and other urban stakeholders across the country.
