As per guidelines of UIG, the number of cities under the Mission shall remain around 60. At present there are 65 cities covered under UIG of JNNURM and no more cities have been added and no projects approved and assistance provided to the cities mentioned above under UIG Sub-Mission of JnNURM. However, cities that are not covered under UIG are eligible for assistance under UIDSSMT subject to availability of funds.
Under UIDSSMT, the sharing of funds would be in the ratio 80:10 between Central Government & State Government and the balance 10% could be raised by the nodal/implementing agencies from the financial institutions (FIs).
