This chapter engages with theories of gentrification through the prism of Indian cities and highlights four key factors shaping Indian urban transformation: informal regimes of urban development, settlement and governance; new state formations consolidating urban elite and middle class power; contradictory desires and fragmented subjectivities shaping subaltern mobilizations; and the role of identity-based violence and exclusion in displacement politics.

Keywords:   Indian cities, informal urban development, urban elite, subaltern mobilizations, displacement
