Agenda of Reforms
The thrust of the JNNURM is to ensure improvement in urban governance and service delivery so that ULBs become financially sound and sustainable for undertaking new programmes. It is also envisaged that, with the charter of reforms that are followed by the State governments and ULBs, a stage will be set for PPPs.
The agenda of reforms is given below. The National Steering Group (NSG) may add additional reforms to identified reforms. Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) between States/ULBs/ Parastatal agencies and the Government of India, a prerequisite for accessing the Central assistance, would spell out specific milestones to be achieved for each item of reform.
All mandatory and optional reforms shall be completed within the Mission period.
