Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT)
Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) was launched in June 2015 with the focus to establish infrastructure that could ensure sewage networks and water supply for urban transformation by implementing urban revival projects. The scheme is dependent with public–private partnership(PPP) model. If required, various other schemes like Swachh Bharat Mission, Housing for All 2022, along with the local state schemes like that related to water supply and sewerage and other infrastructure related schemes can be linked to AMRUT.
The purpose of Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) is to :-
(i) ensure that every household has access to a tap with assured supply of water and a sewerage connection.
(ii) increase the amenity value of cities by developing greenery and well maintained open spaces (e.g. parks).
(iii) reduce pollution by switching to public transport or constructing facilities for non-motorized transport (e.g.walking and cycling).
SAAP(State Annual Action Plans) is a consolidated plan of all the city level SLIPs (Service Level Improvement Plan) of all proposed AMRUT cities in the respective states. A formulation on City level SLIP is done based on diligent estimation of ambiguities in the availability of infrastructure like water supply, sewerage network, draining system, transportation facilities, available digital and internet facilities, industrial facilities etc. 135litres per capita per day is another factor in the process including water supply and sewerage connections to all urban households.
Some of the broad targets of AMRUT scheme are ascertaining that every one has access to tap water and sewerage facilities, greenery like parks and open spaces are well maintained, digital and smart facilities like weather prediction, internet and WiFi facilities, pollution reduction by encouraging the public for using cheaper but secure public transport etc.
