The schemes will apply to all cities / towns as per 2001 census, excepting cities / towns covered under Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM)

The State Government may priorities towns and cities on the basis of their felt-need. While prioritising towns, states would take into account existing infrastructure, population of Scheduled Castes / Scheduled Tribes and special problems like hilly terrain.

Urban Renewal i.e. redevelopment of inner (old) city areas [ this would include items like widening of narrow streets, shifting of industrial / commercial establishments from non-conforming (inner-city) to 'conforming' (outer-city) areas to reduce congestion, replacement of old and worn-out water pipes by new/higher capacity ones, renewal of sewerage/drainage/solid waste disposal systems, etc.]

  • Sewerage and Solid Waste Management
  • Construction and improvement of drains/storm water drains

Financing Pattern

The sharing of funds would be in the ratio of 80.10 between Central Government and State Government and the balance 10% from the financial institutions implementing agencies may substitute internal resources for funds to be raised from financial institutions.

Funds from MPLAD/MLALAD could be used towards project cost and to that extent, the loan component/state share could be suitably reduced.

The scheme will be implemented through a designated State level nodal agency.
