Funding Agency: Local Bodies Rajasthan
Location: Sri Ganganagar,India
Government of India in its latest budget announcement has launched an ambitious program for long-neglected cities, to improve their poor infrastructure and quality of life that falls far short of global benchmarks. The scheme called the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) could get a boost with an outlay of Rs. 100,000 crores. The scheme will cover about 63 cities over a period of seven years starting from 2005-06. Apart from seven mega-cities, the mission will cover around 30 others with a population of over one million, while the rest are important urban centres with crumbling infrastructure and sizeable population. The smaller cities are covered under the Urban Infrastructure Development Scheme for Small and Medium Towns (UIDSSMT) and Integrated Housing and Slum Development Programme (IHSDP).
The Government of Rajasthan, as a first step to get the assistance under this scheme, has decided to prepare the City Development Plan (CDP) for the eligible/select cities of the state under the JNNURM and UIDSSMT and IHSDP. The CDP will be made with an objective to identify the infrastructure projects to be implemented during mission duration across various urban sectors along with the proposed implementation mechanism including the Private Sector Participation (PSP) strategy. The CDP will also focus on the urban reforms measures needs to be implemented to improve the health of ailing municipalities.
