Megacity Scheme

Megacity Scheme

Mumbai was one of the five cities included in the centrally sponsored Mega City Scheme launched by the Government of India in the Eighth Five Year Plan. The Scheme aimed to prepare the local governments to use institutional finance and eventually market instruments like municipal bonds for the capital investment requirements. Of the total project cost, the Government of India and the State Government provided 25% each and the remaining 50% was to be raised from financial institutions by the implementing agencies. The Scheme for Mumbai was being implemented in the urban core of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR). The areas covered under the scheme are Brihanmumbai, Navi Mumbai, Thane, Bhiwandi-Nizampur and Kalyan-Dombivali.
The MMRDA is the nodal agency as well as one of the implementing agencies of the Scheme. The other implementing agencies are MCGM, MSRDC, BEST, CIDCO, TMC, KDMC, BNMC and NMMC. Mega City Scheme Revolving Fund (MCSRF) has been set up in the MMRDA for channelising funds received from GOI and GOM. A State level Sanctioning Committee approves the projects under the Scheme. The Scheme has been implemented during the 8th, 9th and 10th Five year Plan periods. It is discontinued in the 11th plan. In all, 65 projects costing Rs. 1777.84 crores including 2 studies costing Rs. 1.62 crores were approved by 2004-05. Rs. 921.87 crores have been received by the Mumbai Megacity Scheme from GOI and GOM, out of which Rs. 910.79 crores have been disbursed till January, 2013 to the various implementing agencies towards the approved projects. From the repayment of soft loans extended to 65 projects, the Megacity Scheme Revolving Fund Scheme is established and with a set of regulation approved by the SLSC and GOI, financing of new projects started.
Under the new MCS-RF scheme infrastructure projects by the Municipal Corporation and infrastructure agencies are being provided loan @ 10% per annum and the Municipal council being provided loan @ 7% per annum. So far Rs. 325.73 crores is sanctioned for the Underground Sewerage projects of three agencies, out of which Rs. 210.90 crores has been disbursed till June, 2013.
