The Project will benefit about 3 million people, espescially the 600,000 migrants (400,00 in Jammu, 200,000 in Srinagar from the high risk areas, most of who do not have access to basic services.
The Project focuses on rehabilitation only to maximize the use of existing facilties, but not actual expansion. The expansion would be carried out under the proposed follow on urban and road sector projects.

The Government's macro economic objective is to continue to strengthen stability and security in the State through economic development and improved basic services. The ongoing 11th 5 year plan of the Government and the State are providing the impetus for the Project.
The Project was listed in ADB's Country Assistance Plan 2003-04. The Project is the initial part of the State's $2 billion 20 year road map to improve basic urban services in Srinagar, Jammu and major district towns. The follow on urban sector development investment program for $300 million loan was approved in May 2007. The loan for the Project 1 under the Investment Program was declared effective as of 25 March 2008.
