The CMPs are subsequently made part of City Master Plans.

Minister of State for Urban Development and Housing & Urban Poverty Alleviation Rao Inderjit Singh, in a written reply in Lok Sabha stated that 25 cities from eight states have prepared CMPs with the help of central assistance. The ministry assists up to 80 per cent of cost of preparation of CMPs.

In Karnataka, 14 cities that came out with CMPs are: Tumkur, Davanagere, Shimoga, Mangalore, Mysuru, Belgaum, Ballary, Gulbarga, Hubli-Dharwar, Bidar, Chitradurga, Bijapur, Hospet and Raichur. The other five cities with CMPs in Punjab include Amritsar, Bhatinda, Jalandhar, Pathankot and Patiala.

Tirupati (Andhra Pradesh), Kalyan-Dombivili(Maharashtra), Gangtok (Sikkim), Shillong (Meghalaya), Agartala (Tripura) and Jaipur(Rajasthan) are some of the other cities which already have a CMP in place.
