POVERTY REDUCTION STRATEGY TN

social housing by

social housing by identifying land or deciding on models for public-private – partnership with land of the private parties. Wherever feasible, additional land for urban development will need to be released by the construction of outer ring roads. The construction of the ring roads and extension of inner city road networks themselves will create jobs for skilled as well as unskilled labour, release land for other economic activities between the ring road and the inner city or otherwise extended urban areas while preventing formation of additional slums through the strategy of low-cost housing. However, separate financing will be required for the development of physical and social infrastructure. The action plan for poverty reduction strategy is given in Table 6.14. Table 6.14: Implementing Poverty Reduction Strategy: Key Interventions Tackling Slums Implement law already enacted for transfer of property rights to identified slum households Issues bio-metric cards to slum household heads by the end of financial year 2010-11. Identify land banks or cluster of areas for allocation for low-cost housing meant for relocation of slums Develop roads, schools and health centres in the vicinity of these areas Health and Education Improve coordination and develop a common policy and regulatory framework among various public and private sector providers (including NGOs) of education in slum areas Set up an education management information system that will improve educational data collection, information systems and monitoring and evaluation citywide Management by the community with the involvement of NGOs Local industries and other corporations should be involved in financing community colleges (through scholarships) as part of corporate social responsibility Strengthen the effectiveness of the National Literacy Mission so that literacy rate is 100 percent for both men and women Use the National Open School to improve the level of educational attainment 156

These can be very effective in tracing outcomes, continuous tracking of beneficiaries, delivery of funds, checking for efficiency of pattern of allocation of funds, and evaluation of performance of funds, and assessment of the impact of schemes. These can also be very cost-effective in delivery of cash benefit payments. Some useful transfer mechanisms are money order delivery of benefits via the postal system (e.g. social pensions in many states) and on-line transmission for deposits into bank or postal savings accounts. There are also nonregular forms of payments, including transfer of NREG wages through field assistants or in some cases contractors. For cash transfers, some of technological options include low cost ATMs equipped with finger printer or other identification mechanisms, point-ofservice (POS) devices installed in local shops and gas stations, and delivery through mobiles. Mobile phone banking is an emerging phenomenon particularly for managing micro credit that utilizes comprehensive penetration of the new communication networks. Information networks electronically maintained also have the potential to serve as new employment exchanges.
