The Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) was launched in December 2005 with the objective of reforms-driven fast track development of cities across the country, with focus on efficiency in urban infrastructure, service delivery mechanism, community participation and accountability of ULBs / Parastata^agencies towards citizens. It envisaged total investment of more than RS 1,00,000 crore, of which Central Government's share would be RS 50,000 crore. The Central Government's Share was revised to RS 66,084.65 crore in 2009. The mission period was for seven years (2005-2012). There were 65 cities identified as Mission Cities under the mission. JNNURM consisted of two sub-missions: the 'Urban Infrastructure and Governance (UIG)' (Sub-mission I) and the 'Basic Services to the Urban Poor' (BSUP) (Sub-mission II) for 65 identified mission cities. In respect of other cities and towns, there were two components namely (i) 'Urban Infrastructure Development Scheme for Small& Medium Towns (UIDSSMT)' and (ii) 'Integrated Housing and Slum Development Programme' (IHSDP).

Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD) is the nodal ministry for 'Urban Infrastructure and Governance (UIG)' and 'Urban Infrastructure Development Scheme for Small & Medium Towns (UIDSSMT)'. Urban infrastructure projects relating to water supply (including sanitation), sewerage, solid waste management, road network, urban transport, redevelopment of inner (old) city areas etc were executed under UIG and UIDSSMT. Ministry of Housing Urban Poverty Alleviation (MoHUPA) is the nodal ministry for 'Basic Services to the Urban Poor (BSUP)' and 'Integrated Housing and Slum Development Programme (IHSDP)'. These projects cover housing and slum development for providing shelter, basic services and other related civic amenities.
