The scheme was launched by the Hon’ble Prime Minister in June 2015 under Ministry of Urban Development with the focus of the urban renewal projects is to establish infrastructure that could ensure adequate robust sewerage networks and water supply for urban transformation. The scheme is dependent with public private partnership model (PPP) model. If required, various other schemes like Swachh Bharat Mission, Housing for All 2022, along with the local state schemes like that related to water supply and sewerage and other infrastructure related schemes can be linked to AMRUT. Providing basic services (e.g. water supply, sewerage, urban transport) to households and build amenities in cities which will improve the quality of life for all, especially the poor and the disadvantaged is a national priority.
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).
Out of five, water supply and sewerage are the main focus area once 100% benchmark achieved on these other components may be taken up. Parks and open spaces are mandatory component. Since GMDA, Jal Board are involved in number of water supply projects hence no project is submitted in SLIP for water supply.
