Centre has asked states and union territories to set up district-level advisories and monitoring committees to oversee implementation of its various urban development schemes.

Union Urban Devlopment Minister M Venkaiah Naidu has given his approval in this regard.

“States/union territories will appoint the senior most Member of Parliament as the chairperson of the committee. Two more MPs, one each from Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha, will be the co-chairpersons,” an official statement said.

The members of the committee will include all MLAs from respective districts representing the urban local bodies (ULBs), mayors and chairpersons of ULBs, chairpersons and chief executives of urban development authorities in districts, among others.

These committees will monitor implementation of schemes such as Swachh Bharat Mission, Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT), Heritage City Development and Augmentation Yojana (HRIDAY), Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana-Housing for All (Urban) and Deendayal Antyodaya Yojana-National Urban Livelihoods Mission.

The committees will meet at least once in three months and submit action taken reports to state/UT governments for necessary action, the statement said.

States/UTs in turn will submit consolidated reports every year to the Ministry of Urban Development and Ministry of Housing & Urban Poverty Alleviation, it said.
