Rs 2,800 crore allotted for urban renewal process

Posted online: Friday, August 26, 2005 at 0000 hours IST

 NEW DELHI, AUG 25:  The ministry of urban development will provide Rs 2,800
crore to states and Union Territories for the national urban renewal
mission. If states provide matching funds for urban expenditure, the total
outlay would go up to Rs 5,600 crore. In the outcome budget for 2005-06
released by the finance ministry on Thursday, the urban development ministry
stated that a total of Rs 900 crore would be allocated for water supply, Rs
525 crore for sewerage and sewage treatment, Rs 500 crore each for roads and
urban transport, Rs 275 crore for storm water drainage and Rs 100 crore for
solid waste management.
On completion, the projects are expected to produce and deliver 1,168 mld of
treated water in the project cities. A population of 13.5 million is
expected to benefit by augmentation of existing service and creation of new
facilities. As much as 445 mld of waste water from a total population of
5.39 million in the project cities generated will be subjected to treatment,
before disposal into land and water bodies. The ministry expects to lay
about 1,375 km length of storm water drains in selected cities. It is
expected that the project will benefit 16.19 mn people and 6,476 metric ton
municipal solid waste generated will be effectively collected, treated and
disposed of in a scientific manner. This is expected to result in the
creation of 2,000 km of two-lane road. For carrying out the stated projects,
state governments will have to prepare city development plans and detailed
project reports. Projects would need to be sanctioned by the state level
sanctioning committee and Central sanctioning and monitoring committee.
Among the identified risk-factors is the fact that outcome of the programme
would depend upon priority given by states for taking up water supply,
sewerage, sanitation, drainage and road projects. The outcome budget also
stated that there was uncertainty about implementation of reforms by states
due to political reasons.

Our Economy Bureau / New Delhi January 12, 2006

The finance ministry wants gross budgetary support for
2006-07 capped at a maximum of around Rs 1,25,000
crore, an increase of 15 per cent over the Rs 1,10,385

National Rural Employment Guarantee Programme,
National Urban Renewal Mission, National Rural Health
Mission, the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan and the National
Highways Development Programme will require an
additional allocation of Rs 19,000 crore next year.
The government would have to provide an additional sum
of at least Rs 3,500 crore for the National Urban
Renewal Mission for the next fiscal, officials said.
The Centre had allocated for Rs 5,500 crore for it
during the current fiscal, which included a grant
component of Rs 1,650 crore.
The urban development ministry had sought that the
allocation be enhanced to Rs 16,000 crore in the
second year, the officials said.
