JNNURM and Cochin

Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) has been a selling point of UPA Government. Though many disagree with the way of implementation of JNNURM, the concept has been a catchy word for many poilcy makers. Let us look at what Cochin has achieved under JNNURM Project.
4. Overall Status of Cochin under JNNURM cities
While I was going through the documents, I was shocked to see some of them. I dont remember any plan meeting held in city to seek the interest of Cochiates to develop CDP. Have you heard of anything of that sort? How many of are aware of these projects in city? Unfortunately we have one of the very funny corporation websites (@) to know about all these developments. I will write more on the corporation website on my next posting.

Dear Dhanuraj

We have been following Cochin developm ents for past 4 years. And Corporation and GCDA requested several times for participation and project proposals for JNNURM. It is unfortunate that you missed it.

Recently we have started a website and a forum
where we discuss these things. If you could join the forum we could continue the discussion. It is free of cost and easy to join.

We are ready to provide a common platform to discuss such ideas in future.
