New Delhi February 20, 2014:- The present guidelines require that projects sanctioned under JnNURM till 31-3-2012 but not completed till 31-3-2014, will have to be completed by State Governments through their own resources. There is no provision for additional funds to the States for completion of their projects other than that committed. Cost overruns have to be borne by the States/UTs and Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) from their own resources.
Under JnNURM, there is no provision for transfer of unutilized funds lying with some States to other States.
Under Urban Infrastructure & Governance (UIG) Sub-Mission of Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JnNURM), out of 539 sanctioned projects during the Mission period, 226 projects have been reported by the State as physically completed as on 31.01.2014 and remaining are at various stages of implementation. Under Urban Infrastructure Development Scheme for Small and Medium Towns (UIDSSMT) of JnNURM, out of 806 sanctioned projects during the Mission period, 448 projects have been reported as physically completed as on 31.01.2014 and remaining are at various stages of implementation.
The projects under JnNURM are implemented by States through Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) and Parastatal agencies. Constraints expressed by States in implementation of projects relate to utility shifting, delay in receipt of permission from various authorities (Railways, Forests etc.), lack of capacity of ULBs, land acquisition, contractual issues etc.
