Solid Waste Management Projects under JNNURM
Government of India does not run Solid Waste Management (SWM) projects under Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM). Under JNNURM, the projects are implemented and operated by the Urban Local Bodies (ULBs)/Parastatals/Agencies of the State Governments. SWM is one of the admissible sector eligible for funding under Urban Infrastructure & Governance(UIG) of JNNURM and under Urban Infrastructure Development Scheme for Small and Medium Towns (UIDSSMT).

One project on Integrated Municipal Solid Waste Strategy has been approved for the City of Mysore on 19.12.2008 with approved cost of Rs. 2998.00 lakh with Additional Central Assistance (ACA) commitment of Rs. 2398.00 lakh under UIG of JNNURM. So far Rs. 599.50 lakh has been released for the project.

Under UIDSSMT, no fund for any SWM project has been released for the State of Karnataka. One SWM project for Maddur Town has not been considered due to exhaustion of allocation of fund for the State of Karnataka.

No new proposals have been received from Karnataka for the year 2011-12 under UIG & UIDSSMT.

This information was given by Shri Saugata Roy, Minister of State for Urban Development in a written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha today.
