This research paper emphases upon catering all-inclusive scrutiny over the Smart City conceptualization with its impetus and utilization. Furthermore, this review characterizes about the technologies participating in the construction of IoT infrastructure for a Smart City, with the notion of predominant characteristics and elements of the same. And last but not least, there is an elucidation of real-life incidents all over the world, as well as the major challenges to be confronted by IoT in present and coming future.
