Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch three flagship schemes for urban revamp.
The three projects are the Smart Cities Mission, the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and the Urban Transformation (AMRUT) and Housing For All.
Union Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu said the schemes will be an important milestone for urban development in the country.
Naidu said the idea is to develop the overall quality of life for citizens and make these cities as role models for others to follow.
The 48,000 crore rupees Smart Cities Mission is aimed at applying smart solutions to improve infrastructure and service delivery in the cities.
The AMRUT Mission, which is worth 50,000 crore rupees, is aimed at infrastructure development of 500 cities with population of over one lakh.
The ‘Housing For All’ mission will enable decent houses to all the needy, particularly the economically weaker sections and low income groups.
Naidu said this mission will be taken up in all the 4041 notified towns across the country.
The schemes have been finalised after extensive consultations with states and other stakeholders.
Mayors and municipal chairpersons of 500 cities from across the country have also been invited for the launch.
