The KUSP, in full Kolkata Urban Services for the P oor, is one of the newest additions to Department for International Development’s (DFID) continuing endeavor to reduce urban poverty in India.
The West Bengal Municipal Act 1993 requires ULBs to prepare “Draft Development Plans” addressing the entire range of municipal functions. KUSP envisages the DDP as a comprehensive plan of the ULBs that sets out a broad vision and strategy while also providing the framework for allocating project funds and government support. DDPs will address economic development, land use planning and control, infrastructure development, ULB revenue and expenditure, operation and maintenance of services, organisation development and management issues. The DDP will provide a mechanism for bringing about convergence of different state and GOI programmes. Developing a strong process for the preparation of DDPs that reflects a consensus of all stakeholders lies at the heart of this project.
The Draft Development Plan (DDP) would consider all the settlements within municipalities and cater to the rehabilitation and service needs of the people living therein.
