Shri Hardeep S. Puri

Minister of State (I/C) - Housing and Urban Affairs

India has more than 4400 cities and towns, and it is essential that the “long tail of small cities” are empowered to deliver on the promise of serving all citizens. The National Urban Digital Mission will streamline and coordinate the various efforts MoHUA has taken to support and enable ULBs. NUDM will create a shared digital infrastructure, with the power to bring together all actors in the urban ecosystem to collaborate and co-create solutions for citizen-centric governance. By building systems to make cities self-reliant and capable of rising to their local challenges, NUDM will help realise Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s vision of an Atma Nirbhar Bharat.

Shri Manoj Joshi

Secretary - Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs

The Ministry intends to create multiple opportunities for Indian states and cities to leverage shared digital infrastructure to accelerate their urban transformation journey. I have every confidence that the NUDM will enable municipal bodies across India to improve service delivery mechanisms, while ensuring utmost citizen’s involvement in participatory governance.
