Just attended the National Conference of Principal Secretaries of Urban Development. This was held at India Habitat Centre, New Delhi. We learnt that the Govt of India would accept fresh proposals for projects under UIG and UIDSSMT and that these would benchmark Service Level Norms. Three years would be the project execution time. However, old projects have to be completed by March 2014 failing which Central Assistance would be recovered with 9% interest. I suggested that GoI may also consider if the old projects may also have an extended timeline co-terminus with the new ones since Jnnurm was continuing in any case.
