Assam Municipal Development Project under World Bank Assistance

  •      This is a project proposal from Urban Development Department, Government of Assam (GoA) seeking World Bank assistance to the extent of US $150 million for urban development in the state. Like elsewhere in India, cities and towns too have been facing the challenges of increasing urbanization. The main objectives of the proposed Assam Municipal Development Project (AMDP) are to help improve urban services in Assam, and the capacity of Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) and state level urban institutions of Assam to help sustain and expand urban services.

         The main objectives of the ‘Assam Municipal Development Project’ are to fulfill the following visions in the line of "Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT)" and Swachh Bharat Mission in urban area.

    • Ensure that every household has access to a tap with assured supply of water and a sewerage connection
    • Increase the amenity value of cities by developing greenery and well maintained open spaces (e.g. parks) and
    • Reduce pollution by switching to public transport or constructing facilities for non-motorized transport (e.g. walking and cycling)

         All these outcomes are valued by citizens, particularly women, and indicators and standards have been prescribed by the Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD) in the form of Service Level Benchmarks (SLBs).

         An amount of Rs. 4500.00 lakhs as Central share and Rs. 500.00 lakhs as State sharewas allocated in the Budget for implementation of Assam Municipal Development Project for the year 2015-16. But the approval of the project from Central Govt. was not obtained. So fund was not sanctioned against this project.
