Governance of Cities from the 74th Amendment to the SPVs

by Tikender Singh Panwar

Panwar reflects on the contemporary relevance of the 74th constitutional amendment that directly effected governance of cities in the country. He argues that the amendment needs to be updated because issues like migration in cities, street vending, urban poverty, homelessness etc., are not addressed in the scope of the 74th amendment.
