i. adequate water supply,
ii. assured electricity supply,
iii. sanitation, including solid waste management, iv. efficient urban mobility and public transport,
v. affordable housing, especially for the poor, vi. robust IT connectivity and digitalization,
vii. good governance, especially e-Governance and citizen participation, viii. sustainable environment,
ix. safety and security of citizens, particularly women, children and the elderly, and
