The funds requirement for Urban Water Supply, Urban sewerage and sewage treatment, urban drainage, Solid waste management, MIS and RnD is shown in the table. The total amount estimated is Rs. 129237 Crore.
The quality of water and its distribution are areas that require special attention in the Eleventh Plan. The data refers to the status of city/town-wise access to drinking water. Facilities are almost absent in a large number of unauthorized and resettlement colonies and slum and squatter settlements. At certain places, cost incurred by the poor to fetch water is much higher than for valid connection holders. Waste water and sewage treatment and its reuse for non-potable purposes and industries are also limited and need attention.
