Last date to apply: 15th February 2021,
Early bird date: 22nd February 2021

COVID19 has taken our cities by surprise which have put a brave foot forward to fight the pandemic. It’s a feat never expected or experienced both by the cities as well as citizens. Approaches to urban governance are changing rapidly as cities struggle to adapt to the challenges of the 21st century including COVID19. SKOCH Smart City Award is an initiative to recognise and encourage top performing government bodies, organisations and those working with the government operating at the city level for developing and upgrading the existing Indian cities to turn them into Smarter Cities. It is a step towards recognising the best practices including existing and emerging models of governance for efficient implementation of programmes and services delivery. 

Such cities, organisations and their associates that have demonstrated innovation in governance practices adequately responding to the local conditions including COVID19 in the smart cities are invited to send their nominations. The objective is to spur development of Smart Cities in India, learning from cross-pollination of ideas and enhancing the competitiveness while leading to efficient management.
