y Introduction y City Profile & Economy y JNNURM y Urban Planning y Urban Infrastructure Status y Urban Infrastructure Development y Conclusion

y Urbanization in India and Urban areas in India can be termed

as the ´prime movers of the economic growthµ. y The time series data from India states also show positive correlation between urbanization and growth in economic activity as measured through the state domestic product (SDP). y As per the urbanization trends of 2001 census, Odisha state is the 24th most urbanized and 5th least urbanized state in India with about 14.97 percent of urban population. y The literacy rate is about 51 percent, which is low compared to the national average of 66 percent.

y The state·s urban population of 5,517,238 (as per 2001

census) is spread across 138 towns/cities in the state. The urban sector of the state comprises 103 urban local bodies (ULBs) comprising there municipal corporations and 101 municipalities. y The Government of India (GoI) has launched in the last fiscal year, the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) to upgrade the cities through a set of identified objectives and to ensure compatibility with the nation·s socio economic objectives and growing role in the world economy.

y The Government of Odisha (GoO) and the USAID have

agreed to pursue a multi-track program of technical assistance to improve delivery and management of urban services and enhance financial management, delivery of services and sustainability of the ULBs in Odisha. y Preparation of the City Development Plan (CDP) is a prerequisite for accessing funds from the JNNURM.
