The Government of India has launched a Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) to encourage cities to initiate steps to bring about improvement in the existing service levels in a financially sustainable manner. The JNNURM consists of two sub-mission: the Urban Infrastructure and Governance and the Basic Services to the Urban Poor. It believes that in order to make cities work efficiently and equitably, it is essential to create incentives and support urban reforms at state and city levels; develop appropriate enabling and regulatory frameworks; enhance the creditworthiness of Municipalities; and integrate the poor with the service delivery system.


The primary objective o the JNNURM is to create economically productive, efficient, equitable and responsive cities. In line with this objective, the Mission focuses on:

  • Integrated development to infrastructure services;

  • Securing linkages between asset creation and maintenance for long-run project sustainability;

  • Accelerating the flow of investment into urban infrastructure services;

  • Planned development of cities including the peri-urban areas, outgrowths, and urban corridors;

  • Renewal and re-development of inner city areas; and

  • Universalisation of urban services so as to ensure their availability to the urban poor.
