Abstract: ABSTRACT India’s smart city plan is undergoing a revolutionary change. The current government at the centre has embarked upon an ambitious ‘Smart Cities Mission’ as its new initiative to modernize India. Consequently rejuvenation programmes focus on IT solutions and improved infrastructure as its main hub. But the real concern seems to be the poor state of "sanitation" and "hygiene" in both urban & rural counterparts. Routine open defecation & septage is found to be the primary cause of India’s stunting epidemic, which makes Smart city projects face hygiene hurdle. Funding in the sanitation & hygiene sector needs to increasingly focus on the most excluded, with urban & rural poor at its heart, since they face the biggest burden and risks from lack of access. However such effort will feed to the new era of urban planning and can make general people contribute to the next frontier in transforming Indian urban-scapes into healthy and hygienic spaces. In view of the above fact, article brings forth the diverse issues & challenges encountered in achieving sustainable sanitation & hygiene. And finally it speaks about proliferation of pilot projects with good initiatives that can be successfully rebooted across the nation.
