LS: TMC raises the issue of funding for JNNURM scheme
AITC MP Saugata Roy questioned the Government in the Lok Sabha on what provisions have been made after the Government has discontinued with the JNNURM Scheme in 65 mission cities.
He informed that the JNNURM mission reforming programme extended from 2005 to 2012 and the total outlay was envisaged at 1 Lakh Crore. He said even now significant work was done and in Indore and Ahmedabad the Bus Rapid Transit System (BRTS) was made with the allocated funds to JNNURM.
He pointed out that many of the schemes under JNNURM remain incomplete and Centre has completely stopped funding this Scheme.
He asked maybe not in JNNURM name but maybe in Dindayal Upadhyay’s name will there be any Scheme?
He also asked what is the exact plan of the Government to launch similar provisions to fill in significant work done by JNNURM in 65 mission cities.
