The key to urbanisation is the ability to monetise land value: Kant

“We can’t copy the American model. When America urbanised, land, gas and water were cheaply available and hence the country created the most polluting cities. India, which has just embarked on the urbanisation process, cannot make the same mistake,” Kant stated.

Moreover, India needs determined political will to drive urbanisation, he added.
