Six Towns in India Selected for Eco-City Project

Six Towns in the country namely Kottayam, Puri, Tirupati, Ujjain, Vrindavan and Thanjavour have been selected in the pilot phase of the Eco-City Programme . The projects undertaken under the pilot phase of the Programme for the respective towns are under various stages of implementation. The Programme which was initiated during the Tenth Five Year Plan is being continued during the first year of the Eleventh Plan. This Eco-City Programme was initiated by the Ministry of Environment and Forests in the Tenth Five Year Plan, which is being implemented by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) through the concerned State Pollution Control Boards and Municipalities. The Programme has been conceptualized to improve the environment and bring in visible results through implementation of identified environmental improvement projects in the selected towns/cities.

The specific objectives of the Programme are to identify the environmental problems in the selected towns through participatory approach to design and prepare details of the prioritized environmental improvement projects; and to create landmarks that show visible environmental improvement.

The Plan size including the schemes for implementation during the remaining years of the Eleventh Five Year Plan is not finalized as yet.

This information was given by the Minister of State in the Ministry of Environment and Forests, Shri Namo Narain Meena in a written reply to question by Shri Suresh Kurup in the Lok Sabha today.
