The underlying goal of the TA is to leverage and mobilize the substantial resources allocated by GOI for urban development through JNNURM, and to help ensure maximum impact of the program in terms of reforms at the state and local level, as well as in terms of physical development of urban infrastructure. As such, the primary impact of the TA will be the effective management and disbursement of JNNURM funds, significant governance reforms at the state and ULB level, efficient processing and implementation of JNNURM funded interventions at the ULB level, and an overall improvement in the urban environment of India?s major cities.
The TA will comprise primarily of consulting support to enable MUD to effectively manage and implement the JNNURM, and maximize its policy reform and urban development impacts. The consulting team will form part of the project cell within the JNNURM Project Directorate at MUD which will spearhead JNNURM implementation. Consulting inputs at the early stages of the TA will help MUD refine the guidelines and processes for project preparation, appraisal, and evaluation, and assist City and State governments in meeting such requirements. The TA will also assist MUD in setting up systems and procedures to monitor progress of project, city or state investments individually, and of JNNURM as a whole. The consulting team will work closely with MUD staff assigned to JNNURM, and a significant transfer of expertise in financial management, project management, monitoring, and implementation to MUD over the TA period is expected.
Key activities under the TA will include:
(i) Supporting the setup of the JNNURM project cell within the Project Directorate of MUD and providing assistance to MUD in the overall management and implementation of the JNNURM.
(ii) Assisting MUD in promoting NURM at the state and local level, refining the requirements and guidelines for accessing NURM funds, and providing close support to State/City governments at all stages in the process to ensure efficient disbursements and smooth implementation.
(iii) Conducting a baseline survey of the infrastructure and regulatory environments in ULBs slated for JNNURM investment, assisting states and cities to define their reform agendas and to enter into MOAs with GOI, and monitoring their progress over time.
(iv) Refining guidelines for the preparation and appraisal of CDPs and DPRs, advising City/State governments on CDP and DPR preparation requirements/methods, and building MUD capacity to check compliance, quality assure, and evaluate the appraisals of CDPs and DPRs.
(v) Monitoring progress of project and governance reform interventions funded through JNNURM, conducting physical and financial audits of projects to ensure full accountability, and assisting State and City governments to resolve any issues in project implementation.
(vi) Create a management information system (MIS) that will allow City and State governments to update project indicators online and allow MUD to track overall performance of JNNURM, forecast funding requirements, and monitor individual project performance efficiently.
