Urban infrastructure is one area, which for years has not received the due attention from policymakers. Over the last fifty years, while the country's population has grown by 2.5 times, in the urban areas it has grown by five times. It is estimated that by the turn of the millennium 305 million Indians shall be living in nearly 3,700 towns and cities spread across the length and breadth of the country. This would be nearly 30 per cent of country's total population. This likely scenario increases the emphasis on urban infrastructure. Urban infrastructure consists of drinking water, sanitation, sewage systems, urban transport, primary health services, and environmental regulation. The rising urban population is continuing to strain infrastructure services in these areas. Indeed, the recent spate of floods I major cities was an unwelcome reminder of the grim state of basic urban infrastructure. There is no effort so far on the part of the government to initiate a coherent urban infrastructure development plan. Most state governments are continuing with an ad hoc and half-hearted approach to this issue. The overall state of basic urban infrastructure in terms of transport, water supply and sanitation remains poor. Indeed, about 20% of the urban population lives in slums without access to some of the basic infrastructure services.
About 60% of urban households are not connected to public sewerage systems. Similarly, management of urban solid waste has been poor. Garbage collection efficiency ranges from 50 to 90% of the solid waste generated. Most of the urban water supply and sanitation providers are not financially viable. They need large subsidy support and have not been able to collect the required user charges due to political interference. Reforming the user charge policy and granting greater independence to these providers would be necessary for making them financially viable and increasing investments in this area.
