Out of total 92,634 wards, a total of 89,699 wards are practicing 100% door-to-door collection of waste and 83,487 wards are following 100% source segregation.

To carry forward the momentum generated by AMRUT, AMRUT 2.0 is launched on October 2021 aimed to provide ease of living to all the citizens living in urban areas through undertaking large infrastructure projects & reforms.

To monitor flow and utilization of funds under the Centrally Sponsored Schemes (CSS) including SBM-U 2.0 and AMRUT 2.0, a new procedure for flow of funds under CSS has been notified by the Department of Expenditure, Ministry of Finance on 23rd March, 2021. Under the new procedure, each CSS is to be implemented by a Single Nodal Agency (SNA) having a Single Nodal Account in a scheduled commercial bank. The down the line Implementing Agencies (IAs) use Zero Balance Accounts to draw funds from the SNA account which on a real time basis indicates the contribution of State Share (SS) as well as funds utilization.
