With the fast spread of connectivity via 5G and IoT (Internet of Things), the Smart City Artificial Intelligence (AI) software industry is expected to reach a massive value of $ 4.9 billion by 2025 globally [1]. In India, the AI market is slated to reach $ 7.8 billion by 2025 at a CAGR of 20.2% as per an International Data Corporation (IDC) report [2]. This chapter explains how AI can be used in the ambitious Smart Cities Mission (SCM) announced by the Government of India in 2015 [3]. Beginning with the conceptual understanding of the SCM, the chapter introduces AI as a useful aid to urban planning thereby creating a safer and sustainable future for its citizens. Applications of AI in Smart cities are then discussed followed by a brief discussion on the prevailing best practices. Challenges in creating AI-enabled smart cities in India are outlined followed by the conclusion which chalks out the road ahead for AI-enabled smart cities in India
