PM TO LAUNCH JAWAHARLAL NEHRU NATIONAL URBAN RENEWAL
MISSION
PROPOSED EXPENDITURE ON MISSION ONE LAKH CRORE RUPEES
http://pib.nic.in/release/release.asp?relid=13437

PMO press release ahead of Parliament to say UPA govt
has approved extrapolation of NDA Urban Reform
Incentive Fund to twin-mission-mode separation of
urban development and urban poverty agenda, abandoning
of equity guaranteeing frameworks for integrated
development. In sozzled spirit of haloed 74th *State
governments/urban local bodies will be required to
sign a Memorandum of Agreement with the Central
Government, giving an undertaking to implement the
reform agenda, as per a mutually agreed road map. Fund
releases will be linked to assessment of the
implementation of reform agenda*. The *mutually agreed
roadmap* is plotted, in name of same haloed 74th, on
model municipal law that USAID had drafted for India
with NDA. The same model law has become now
USAID-sponsored Delhi Municipal Corporation
(Amendment) Bill, 2005. In enthusiastic presumption of
this USAID-sponsored law the Capital has been
crafting, in name of innocuous sounding building
byelaw reform, the coup-de-grace for the badly whipped
Master Plan framework. On this successful
pilot-project of two-year long and continuing fraud on
the Constitution, the PM can confidently launch
*mutually agreed* missions.

I hope people make time to at least check out what the
USAID sponsored law has in store for them now that it
is approved to be unleashed in mission-mode.

Subject: [mpisgmedia] MCD (Amendment) Bill, 2005
(building-byelaws business)


The "Building byelaw reform" that Delhi Municipal
Corporation has been carrying out since December

2003

was referred by Delhi Government to Union Ministry

of

Home Affairs on 27 October 2005, as "Regulatory
Framework for Building Regulation in Delhi". This
includes a USAID-sponsored Bill to amend the MCD

Act.

The Bill proposes drastic changes in the framework

for

urban development and the relation between

government,

citizens and professionals and is consonant with
recent FDI decisions, revised offer for WTO-GATS,

etc,

and in conflict with provisions of other laws and

the

Constitution. This note is about this Bill, of

which

the "building byelaw reform" is both creature and
instrumentality and for nearly two years has also

been

smoke screen.

In face of comprehensive consensus (that exists by
fact of being publicly claimed and not having been
publicly denied or decried) on "building byelaw
reform" and USAID-sponsored legislation under that
garb I am not inclined to defend my view that this
scurrilous Bill not only needs to be scrapped but

also

calls for exemplary exercise of s.490 of MCD Act
("Dissolution of the Corporation: (1) If, in the
opinion of the Central Government, the Corporation
persistently makes default in the performance of

the

duties imposed on it by or under this Act or

exceeds

or abuses its powers, the Central Government may

by an

order published, together with a statement of

reasons

therefore, in the Official Gazette, dissolve the
Corporation"). > I have sought information of
procedure, if any, by which I might urge / inform
Central Government opinion under s.490 <see>

This note only points out the changes proposed and

a

few related points of law and facts.
