1. Under Project 1, a drainage contract for the primary drains is underway and advance actions have been undertaken for improving the secondary drains under Project 2. A storm water Master Plan has also been prepared under the AUIIP.

3. Both the PMC and DSC consultants are fully operational and helping the Project Management Unit (PMU) in the project administration. Government has been requested to expedite the process of engaging key positions in the PMU.

4. The bidding process for the design, build and operation of 100 metric tons processing plant and 60 metric tons Sanitary Landfill site and allied works in Dibrugarh under Project 1 will be conducted after the environmental clearance is received by Q1 2015.

5. A minor change in scope to the Investment Program was approved which resulted to the inclusion of drainage improvement in the city of Guwahati and the exclusion of sewerage and bus rapid transit system (BRTS) in the city of Guwahati. These changes to the Investment Program were requested by the Government of Assam to restructure the urban sector development in Guwahati and undertake sector improvement and contract management from a single financing agency.
