An important project for Kollam city as 2020 is approaching! This is a joint funding of AMRUT + KIIFB. Total allocation now is around Rs. 313.5 crores.

The water source (Kallada River) is at Njankadavu near Puthur. The water will be pumped from there to Mulavana Kottimukku Tank (13 Kms away from the water source) which can hold 40 lakhs litres of water. From the Mulavana Tank, the water will be pumped to Vasoorichira Treatment Plant (15 Kms away from Mulavana Tank and is in the vicinity of the city). From the Vasoorichira plant, water will be pumped to the upcoming new tank near Manichithodu and from there to Anandavalleesshram underground Cellar tank to connect to the existing city water supply infra.

94 cities get Credit Ratings as Smart Cites and AMRUT cities gear up to issue Municipal Bonds

NDMC, Navi Mumbai and Pune lead with AA+ Rating; Port Blair not in the list

Port Blair, Mar 26/--/ With the exercise of Credit Rating of cities and towns gaining momentum, 94 of the 500 cities included in Smart City Mission and Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) have obtained such ratings which are necessary for issuing Municipal Bonds for mobilization of resources.

During the review of progress of Credit Rating exercise taken by Minister of Urban Development Shri M Venkaiah Naidu yesterday, it was revealed that 55 of these cities have got ‘Investment Grade’ ratings. Shri Naidu noted that 59% of cities assessed getting Investment Grade rating was better than what was thought of about the financial situation of Urban Local Bodies in the country.

The 94 cities that have so far been assigned Credit Ratings are spread across 14 States. Ministry of Urban Development is promoting Credit Rating of cities as one of the five

Transformational Reforms under which about 500 cities and towns that account for about 65% of total urban population were to be given Credit Ratings during this year.

Of the total 20 ratings ranging from AAA to D, BBB- is the ‘Investment Grade’ ratings and cities rated below BBB- need to undertake necessary interventions to improve their ratings for obtaining positive response to the Municipal Bonds to be issued.

Credit Ratings are assigned based on assets and liabilities of Urban Local Bodies, revenue streams, resources available for capital investments, Double Entry Accounting practice and other governance practices.

Besides the Credit Rating of Urban Local Bodies, ratings for individual projects for which resources are to be mobilised through Municipal Bonds would have a bearing on the response to such bonds.

Details of cities and towns and respective Credit Ratings are as below:

Credit Rating Cities/Towns

AA+ (3) New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC), Navi Mumbai and Pune
AA (3) Ahmedabad, Visakhapatnam and Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation
AA- (4) Surat, Nashik, Thane and Pimpri-Chindwad
A+ (5) Indore, Kishanganj(Rajasthan), Kolkata, Vadodara(Gujarat) and Warangal(Telangana)
A (1) Jhunjhunu (Rajasthan)
A-(8) Alwar, Bhiwadi, Beawar, Jaipur(Raj), Bhopal,Jabalpur(MP), Mira Bhayandar(Maha) and New Town Rajarhat(W.Bengal)
BBB+ (5) Ajmer , Kota and Udaipur(Rajasthan), Ludhiana(Punjab) and Jamnagar(Guj)
BBB (14) Kakinada, Anantapur, Kurnool and Tirupati (Andhra Pradesh), Davanagere and Hubbali-Dharwar(Karnataka), Kochi and Trivendrum (Kerala), Panaji (Goa), Kolhapur and Nagpur(Maharashtra), Jodhpur, Nagaur and Tonk(Rajasthan)
BBB- (12) Amaravati (Maharashtra), Belgavi (Karnataka), Bharuch and Bhavnagar (Gujarat), Bharatpur, Bhilwara, Bikaner and Hanumangarh(Rajasthan), Chittor and Cuddapah (Andhra Pradesh), Cuttack (Odisha), Ranchi (Jharkhand).
BB+ (14) Proddatur, Nandyal and Nellore (Andhra Pradesh), Kollam and Kozhikode (Kerala), Kalol, Nadiad and Navsarai (Gujarat), Nanded and Solapur (Maharashtra), Gangapur City, Dhaulpur, Pali and Sawai Madhopur (Rajasthan)
BB (14) Adoni and Tadipatri (Andhra Pradesh), Dwaraka (Gujarat), Aizawal (Mizoram), Thrisur (Kerala), Berhampur, Rourkela and Sambhalpur (Odisha), Bundi, Churu, Chittorgarh, Hindaun, Jodhpur and Sujangarh (Rajasthan)
BB- (7) Adityapur, Chas, Deogarh and Giridh (Jharkhand), Mori (Gujarat), Baran and Jhalawar (Raj)
B+ (3) Baripada and Puri (Odisha) and Hazaribagh (Jharkhand)
B (1) Bhadrak (Odisha)

As per the reforms timelines suggested by the Ministry of Urban Development, 39 cities that have got Credit Ratings below the investment grade (BBB-) have to undertake necessary interventions for improving the ratings in one year; an official communication said here today.

Hawk Eye adds:

With a resident population of 293,416, even Aizawal, the capital city of Mizoram has found a place in the list of cities given credit ratings but there, however, is no mention of the capital of Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Port Blair, in the credit ratings, whatsoever.

Your call, Chairperson, PBMC, Mr. Eswar Rao!

That money won't go anywhere.
The fund remains unused.

Several things need to be cleared for this project, including the relocation of Government quarters. That may be the reason for this delay.

Yes it will remain unused, but even that has a deadline after which it gets transferred back.

Those fund allotments are not instant.
That itself will take a lot of time to reach the concerned authorities.
