Urban Infrastructure Development Scheme for Satellite Towns around 7 Megacities– Scheme Guidelines

This flagship scheme of Urban Infrastructure Development Scheme for Satellite Towns (UIDSST) was launched for satellite towns around 7 Megacities. 7 Towns were covered under the scheme namely: Pilkhuwa and Sonepat (near Delhi), Sanand (near Ahmedabad), Vasai-Virar (near Mumbai), Vikarabad (near Hyderabad), Sriperumbudur (near Chennai), and Hosakote (near Bengaluru) focussing on the development of 3 sectors of essential infrastructure facilities like water supply, sewerage/drainage, solid waste management coupled with Reforms to enhance the delivery of services with respect to the benchmarks set out.

The Scheme Guidelines were prepared to help cities to formulate the “City Development Plans” (aided by the JnNURM toolkit) and the phased planning of projects commensurate to the funding pattern. A ‘Compendium of Primers for undertaking Reforms’ was also issued to aid the cities in understanding and implementing the reforms agenda.
