Telangana proposes Rs.415 crore AMRUT Action Plan for 2015-16

New Delhi: Telangana on Saturday proposed to spend Rs.405.17 crore on enhancing water supply in 11 Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) cities in the state during the current financial year.

The state government has submitted State Annual Action Plan (SAAP) in this regard to the ministry of urban development for consideration and approval.

The total plan outlay proposed for this financial year under AMRUT is Rs.415.51 crore, including Rs.6.05 crore, on capacity building of urban local bodies.

The state government has proposed to focus on enhancing water supply in all the 11 mission cities since water supply in all these cities at present is below the prescribed norm of 135 liters per capita per day.

The state government has proposed to ensure water supply and sewerage connections to almost all households in these 11 mission cities by 2020 besides enhancing water supply to 135 lpcd.

Under AMRUT, central assistance to be provided is decided based on total urban population and number of statutory urban local bodies in each state.

Telangana has a total urban population of 93 lakhs in the 11 cities included in Atal Mission. Central assistance to be provided each year is decided based on these criteria.

During the five year mission period of AMRUT, Telangana has proposed to invest Rs.5,413 crore on water supply and Rs.5,435 crore on providing sewerage connections to all households in 11 mission cities.

Green spaces and parks are proposed to be developed at a cost of Rs.89 crore.
