Grants for states and municipal corporations in the area of urban development will depend on their rating and performance, Union minister Venkaiah Naidu said on Saturday even as he asked every city to prepare a vision document for the coming 10 years based on what he termed was the ‘PPPP’ model.
“Central funding will depend on the performance of stategovernments and the municipal corporations. There has to be a rating for both the states as well as the corporations. Who will give money without credit worthiness?,” he asked.
Every city should prepare a vision document for the next10 years that will envisage a comprehensive development plan. According to him, the plan should be prepared after taking into considerationthe suggestions of the people of the city as the developments for them.
“We will need to adopt a new model of people-public- private-partnership (PPPP) for making cities more sustainable and smarter,” Naidu told a gathering of 115 municipal commissioners at a consultative workshop on urban governance.
