Effective implementation of smart city projects is vital to the paradigm change. The significant factors that need to be critically researched and looked after are to be debated through this international event. We have to look to challenges of lack of Technologies and Digitization related Supports as lack of information system, IT integration, superior technologies, database management, and operational solutions are hindering the roadmap for building smart cities. The important aspect of Intelligent Transportation system (ITS) or Mobility is vital, because transportation has become a big issue, in a country like India, due to the perplexed road network which leads to delay in commuting. 

Lack of stakeholders (Ventures and Vendor) support can create less awareness of this concept, and if there were no stakeholders, the concept would be nonviable. Further, one also has to look for E-Governance support as E-government gives digitally-enabled pragmatic solutions required in the cities from all the people belonging to different communities for suggesting a smarter city in coming time. Privacy Breach is an essential challenge as stringent policies, and interrelated technologies and infrastructures can be intimidations to privacy and freedom. The management of Big Data as Big Data combines non-structured data (Social media analytics and sensors) and structured data (organisations), it collaborates and links all the factors to each other. At the same time, the culture & Art differences is a significant challenge for the development of Smart Cities.
