Rajasthan has sought approval of plans totaling Rs 1,087 Cr under the recently launched Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) with priority on improving sewerage network in the identified cities.

Over 50% of the entire plan would be spent on improving the sewage collection and treatment since 10 of the 28 identified cities and towns under the scheme have no sewerage network service.

With this, Rajasthan has also become the first state to submit the state annual action plan under AMRUT targeting universal coverage in respect of water supply and sewerage connections to all urban households.

Under the plan, AMRUT projects are proposed to be taken up in 13 of the 28 AMRUT cities in the state. These include Alwar, Beawar and Nagaur where both water supply and sewerage projects will be taken up while water supply projects will be taken up in seven other cities of Baran, Bhiwar, Bhilwara, Chittorgarh, Dhaulpur, Ganganagar City and Sujangarh. In three cities – Bhiwadi, Sikar and Udaipur – only sewerage and septage management projects will be taken up, an UD ministry official said.

The state has proposed Rs 555 crore for six sewerage and septage management projects and Rs 344 crore for 10 water supply projects.

Project expenditure proposed in the 13 cities include Beawar (Rs 154 crore), Alwar (Rs 130 crore), Bhiwadi (Rs 110 crore), Nagaur (Rs 110 crore), Sikar (Rs 110 crore), Udaipur (Rs 85 crore), Baran (Rs 50 crore), Chittorgarh (Rs 40 crore), Ganganagar City (Rs 40 crore), Dholpur (Rs 30 crore), Bhilwara (Rs 25 crore), Sujangarh (Rs 25 crore) and Bhiwadi (Rs 20 crore).
