Sustainable development is possible only through fundamental solutions rather than symptomatic solutions. Human beings have now learnt that short term solutions only complicate the systems in the long run. This paper is an attempt to highlight the relationship between social sustainability, economic sustainability, and environmental sustainability and study its influence on quality of life in the back ground of development of smart cities. Using system dynamics methodology, a causal loop was developed from the factors available in the literature and an attempt was made to model and present the system within a working boundary set by the researchers. The model can provide valuable insights to the policy makers by emphasising on the major issues that need to be addressed
