There is a gap in urban rural setup worldwide. Technology can be a level playing enabler if Smart Village Framework is made in holistic analytical manner. Besides Technology best practices, motivated teams can transform the villages. Extenics theory is a tool for evolving a framework for Smart villages, as it minutely identifies various elements as matter in different conditions, contexts and also assigns measurable attributes. In this paper the various attributes related to a Smart Village are being analyzed using Extenics and a Smart Village Planning Framework is suggested for Indian Context.
