India Transport Indicators (Draft for comments)
This study compares basic transport and air quality indicators for 12 Indian cities.

A dearth of adequate infrastructure and services has been recognized as one of the roadblocks in the sustainable development of Indian cities. India has unleashed a plan to tackle the challenges of fast urbanization and motorization by accelerating the supply of infrastructure and services. EMBARQ is technically assisting many cities in India in order to bring about sustainable change. In the study "India Transport Indicators" , embarq has studied basic transport and air quality indicators for 12 Indian cities. These indicators were reported in city development plans, comprehensive mobility plans, comprehensive traffic and transport studies and detailed project reports submitted to the Ministry of Urban Development between 2005 and 2007. The list was created with an intention to include, metropolitan cities, cities with ongoing or future BRT projects. We divided the 12 cities into three categories, "metro" cities (Chennai, Mumbai, and Delhi),"millennium bloomers" (Ahmedabad, Bangalore and Pune) and "now exploding" (Bhopal, Indore, Jaipur, Mysore, Rajkot and Surat).
