It is well recognised that while India is a rising power, poised to emerge into the front rank of global economies, the pace and scale of India#xE2;#xAC;"s urbanisation calls for more effective metropolitan management if that growth is not to be constrained by gathering urban crisis. Three of the greatest Indian cities #xE2;#xAC;#x1C; Mumbai, Kolkata and Hyderabad #xE2;#xAC;#x1C; exemplify the challenges of urbanisation and these serve here as case studies to explore five dimensions of urban governance. London, with its recent experience of reshaping of its metropolitan structures and process through the establishment of a directly elected Mayor and the Greater London Assembly, provides a reference point for this analysis.
