Description The proposed policy support aims for universal and equitable access to urban services, which is important in improving the quality of life of urban residents.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The program design takes into consideration the government's vision and renewed strategy for the urban sector. The President of India's address to the Parliament (2021 budget session) emphasized a focus on delivering water, housing, and connectivity, followed up with allocation of funds toward these priorities. The recommendations of India's 15th Finance Commission and national flagship program of JJM-U (footnote 4) stress outcome-based funding and incentives as vital for focusing on the universal delivery of basic urban services (such as water, sanitation, housing, etc.). Also, routine fiscal devolution is conditional on local revenue improvements. This approach is also recommended by the Committee of Secretaries and the National Institution for Transforming India (NITI) Aayog.
