Abstract: Smart cities have the ability to incorporate information and information communication and technology in ensuring effective delivery of services. Basically they aim at ensuring high living standardizes for its citizens. Transformation to smart city ideology has been encouraged by a number of governments globally. The government of India in 2015 started an initiative named smart cities mission (SCM) aimed to upgrade urban cities to smart cities. Udaipur is among the 100 cities selected in this initiative by the national government. Udaipur smart city implementation will focus in areas including transport and safety measures, installation of Wi-Fi and other modern facilities. Smart city includes collection of data that is processed and analyzed to enhance service delivery within the city that include schools, hospital, and transportation among others. In this paper we discuss how the analogy of the frame work used in raising living standards in smart city can be directly applied in higher education institutions in Udaipur to raise standards of learning. In our framework we identify ICT as the base of operation in both instances.
