According to the Union Minister for Housing and Urban Affairs Hardeep Singh Puri, in a written reply to the members of Rajya Sabha, the Greater Warangal, Karimnagar and Hyderabad have been enlisted from Telangana state while Amaravati, Kakinada, Tirupathi and Visakhapatnam from Andhra Pradesh. The India Cycles4Change Challenge was launched by the Union Housing and Urban Affairs Ministry on June 25, 2020 which is open to all Indian cities with a population of above 5 lakhs, capital cities of States or Union Territories and Smart Cities.

At present, these participating cities are undertaking pilot projects, citizen surveys and conducting capacity building workshops related to the Challenge.

The India Cycles4Change Challenge aims to create extensive cycling-networks through low-cost interventions like pop-up cycle lanes and traffic-calmed or non-motorised zones. Cities could launch programmes such as community-led cycle rental schemes that increase the availability of cycles to citizens and promote the usage of cycling through public events and outreach. At present, there is no provision for providing cycles to cities under the challenge, informed the Minister.
