BANGALORE: In every election in India, the masses are always puzzled as to what the next government would focus. Will they focus on policies rather than personalities or they would deal with the vacuum left by the earlier government, this is the common notion by all. So, let’s have a look at the key reforms which the next government should take up for the development of the country, as compiled by M Ramachandran for Business Standard.

The Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission: As per the latest census, the urban population of India has increased from 286 million in 2001 to 377 million in 2011.  With the massive increase in urban population, there is a requirement to improve the urban infrastructure and the service delivery systems.  Keeping these specific objectives in mind, the central government launched the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission in December 2005. 

The aim of the mission is to encourage reforms and fast track planned development of identified cities (such as cities with a population of more than 1 million as per the 2001 census).
The JNNURM which earlier was allocated just seven years, starting from this year it should be extended to at least ten years to witness the complete reforms along with the new budgets allocations and with clearly stated objectives. And also it should focus more on urbanization than on cities. In that way, it would be able to implement successfully. So, the new Government should focus on a developed urban policy like this.
