Minister for Urban Development Venkaiah Naidu said, “Under Smart Cities and AMRUT, more power will be given to states.. We will take MPs from the states in to confidence for this purpose.”
The Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to launch the Smart City and AMRUT projects on June 25.
Cities will have to compete with each other to be among the 100 selected under the Smart Cities Mission. And, AMRUT (Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation) — covering 500 cities — will essentially be a revised version of the JNNURM. The two together will have an outlay of Rs 1 lakh crore over the next five years.
