Dec-Jan,2015, Vol - 2/7, Page - 1064/1070

 Magnitude and dimension of urban poverty manifest itself in the emergence of exclusionary urban processes characterised by lack of basic services to slum dwellers and low income groups. Pro-poor components of JNNURM become very relevant in this context. This paper tries to analyse the pattern of work done under the Sub-Mission of JNNURM on Basic Services to the Urban Poor (BSUP) and Rajiv Awas Yojana. State level analysis reveals that performances of Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, West Bengal, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh, Karnataka, Delhi and Kerala are satisfactory in terms of number of dwelling units constructed under the BSUP of JNNURM. Alarmingly, Jharkhand, Bihar, Rajasthan, Goa, Uttrakhand, Arunachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh performed badly. Serious intervention is needed in these states. Rajiv Awas Yojana was launched with the main objective of making Indian cities ‘slum free’. Lack of clear road map for its time-bound implementation puts a question mark on its success.
