Abstract:

This presentation provides a summary of the Findings and Recommendations of the Report on Indian Urban Infrastructure and Services which argues that the challenge of managing urbanisation will have to be addressed through a combination of increased investment, strengthening the framework for governance and financing, and a comprehensive capacity building programme at all levels of government. At the centre of this approach is the role of cities and towns in an interdependent federal system. The Committee is of the view that India’s municipal corporations, municipalities and nagar panchayats, commonly known as urban local bodies (ULBs) need to be strengthened as local self-government with clear functions, independent financial resources, and autonomy to take decisions on investment and service delivery.
