  2. 2. PREFACE CIVIC AMENITIES: The facilities provided by the governments and municipal corporations for common people are called civic amenities, such as: water supply, electricity, roads, bridges, flyovers, public toilets, garbage disposal, railways, roadways, and likes, the utilities that are used by the masses / public. Human development and improvement in quality of life are the ultimate objectives of all Planning. The dimensions covered under it are: The country has one of the largest urban systems with 217.6 million people in 1991, which is projected to increase to 289 million in 2001 and around 605-618 million during 2021-2025. There will be about 40 metro cities in the country in 2001 as against 23 in 1991. However, the key urban concern is the growing gap between demand and supply of basic services. So, the basic objective of this presentation is to minimize this gap and lead to social satisfaction and thereby leading to political win situation! “GreatPlacesnotonlyhavegreatINFRASTRUCTUREbutalso…GREAT AESTHETICS”
  3. 3. PROBLEM STATEMENT :  SCOPE OF THE PROBLEM India, the second most populous country in the world, has no more than 2.5% of global land but is the home of 1/6th of the world's population. Living in a resource poor country with high population density, planners perceived in the figures of 1951 census the potential threat posed by rapid population growth to the developmental activities, efforts to improve per capita income, availability of food, clothing, education and employment, prevention of environmental deterioration and enhancement of the quality of life. India became the first country in the world to formulate and implement the National Family Planning Programme in 1952 with the objective of "reducing birth rate to the extent necessary for stabilization of the population at a level consistent with the requirement of the National economy". Key development challenges include the need to improve programme implementation, accountability and service delivery, and to particularly address the failure of public systems to effectively deliver food, education, health and other basic goods and services. “Worldclassinfrastructureenablesbigchangeinqualityoflife throughasmallchangeininfrastructureinvestment.” Contd….

CAUSES OFTHE PROBLEM The main reason behind the “lack of world class civic amenities in urban India” can be traced to the development of urban cities as important political and economic centers of the country. People are fascinated and attracted in large number from the rural and small town areas to the big cities. Moreover, disparities in India take on various hues – there are disparities across geographical regions (States, districts, rural-urban),disparities in the fund allocation to various states, level of corruption in different cities and states, lack of sensitivity of the politicians towards the welfare of the common people, lack of awareness among the people and so on. REASONS FOR SELECTING A SPECIFIC PROBLEM IT COVERS EVERY SEGMENT OFTHE SOCIETY INTHE WHOLE OF INDIA! Ensuring world class civic amenities in Urban India is important because it will ensure the following: •Satisfying basic of needs •Works with components •Direct bearing on investment decisions •Exhibits intent towards development •Can be catalytic for future course of development •It is an experience for the citizens • Increases the competitive quotient of the country • Enhances competition from other countries • It is associated with a brand value • It is flexible and expandable
  5. 5. PROPOSED SOLUTION :  Establishing a Ministry of Civil Amenities in the Cabinet.  Privatization at the actual work levels.  Labor collaborations at International Level for construction of civil amenities.  Establishment of the Research and development department under the ministry.  Affordable housing and night shelters for slums in the urban areas( so that space is available for further development)  Distribution of proportionate funds at every level according to the requirements of the area i.e. state, district…etc.  Revamping the planning system and monitoring it regularly.  Development of infrastructure and employment opportunities in rural areas, so as to avoid the migration of the mob from rural areas to urban areas.  Creating the awareness among officials and the society.  Establishment of departmental coordination between various departments of infrastructure development.  Emphasis of economic shadow zones.  Planning in 3 stages- Immediate action plan (crisis management) , intermediate action plan and long term action plan.  Bridging gap between demand of infrastructure and resources available.  Public participation.  Same policy of development throughout the nation and sharing of resourcing for the same.
  6. 6. IMPLEMENTATION OF THE SOLUTION : Ministry Of Civic Amenities (central and independent) State ministry for civic amenities Central urbanization office State capital office District wise office Customer support office and help centre Privatization (at actual work levels) STRUCTURE OF Ministry of civic amenities in the cabinet and privatization at lower functional levels Research and development units and international labor contracts. Research & Development unit International labor collaboration BOT( BUILD, OPERATE AND TRANSFER) model In this the private sector should build the infrastructure, bring it to the operating level and then transfer it to the government. Public participation should be encouraged in the infrastructure development by not only asking about the problems and their solutions but also by creating civic sense among masses.
  7. 7. IMPACT OF THE SOLUTION : CRITERIA TO MEASURE THE IMPACT OF THE SOLUTION Establishment of a central and independent ministry will ensure timely and adequate supply of funds for development. Increased security and satisfaction among people. Less corruption among government employees due to controlling measures and involvement of private sector and public as well. Emerging of the country as a brand in the world market. Transfer of labor skills and technologies from developed nations due to international labor collaborations. Increase in confidence for the political parties among the people. Privatization will lead to better work and development. R & D department will ensure the development of infrastructure in a customized form as required by the country. Better civic sense among the people. Reduction in problem of over crowding in the urban areas thereby helping to create a balance between demand for infrastructure and supply of resources.  Economies of scale (also resources) due to nation wide policy of development.  3-stage planning will be helpful in achieving better results. Contd..
  8. 8. APPROPRIATE MONITORING MECHANISM Creating benchmarks at every level of operation. Creating comparative limits of time for the developments among states.
  9. 9. CHALLENGES AND THE MITIGATION FACTORS : Depletion of natural resources – It can be dealt with by using solar energy in the projects. Moreover, use the concept of recycle and reuse concept should be used. Make “zero- waste sites” Privatization will lead to increased costs- The whole of the sector must not be privatized and a regulatory body must be set up above it to ensure the ethical behavior. Unemployment to the local labors due to international labor collaborations- Local labor must be sent to developed nations for skills enhancement and training , which should be the part of collaboration programmes.
