Prime Minister Narendra Modi is all set to launch three mega flagship schemes aimed at transforming urban India, including the much talked about Smart Cities proposal, with a whopping Rs 4 lakh crore having been lined up for the projects. Modi will release implementation guidelines for three projects - 100 Smart Cities, the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) for 500 cities and Housing-For-All by 2022 in urban areas. The operational guidelines for each of the three projects - which lay the ground rules and framework for implementation -- were formulated after extensive, almost year-long consultations with states, Union Territories and urban local bodies. While urban population is set to rise by more than 400 million people to touch 814 million by 2050, India faces a mass urbanisation challenge even as many of its biggest cities are already bursting at the seams. The government, through these schemes, is looking to bring about a transformation of urban India with the critical goal of making the country an economic hub. Source: Deccan Herald
