Rapid decentralization, under which states are becoming key players in policymaking, necessitates a regional opportunity assessment in India. The country has a vast and diverse geography, with large disparities between and within states, and a high concentration of wealth in cities.

With this in mind, FSG has built a city prioritization framework for India, which categorizes city clusters in India into super, emerging, and frontier clusters.
