Some supplementary role

Some supplementary role that GoTN schemes play relate to housing and employment. For the Indira Awas Yojana, the GoTN, in addition to unit cost of Rs. 25000/27500 is committed to provide a sum of Rs. 12000 per house for RCC roofing apart from its matching share thereby providing a house with a value of Rs. 37000/395000- to the poor family. The minimum plinth area of a house is 20 square metres. All new houses under IAY will have toilets and smokeless chulahs. The Tamil Nadu Rural Employment Guarantee Schemes, introduced in 2005-06 in six districts has been expanded to ten districts in 2007-08. In these districts, this programme will substitute the SGRY programme. GoTN that the scheme will cover the entire state during the Plan period. Formation of Panchayat Level Federation: Under Mahalir Thittam, a federation of SHGs is formed at the Village Panchayat Level called the Panchayat Level Federation (PLF) comprising of two representatives from each SHG in the Panchayat. The PLF provides a common platform for the SHGs to share their experiences and to voice their problems. For urban areas under Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM), the Government of Tamil Nadu (GoTN) is committed to improve basic services. The main thrust of the Sub-mission BSUP (Basic services for urban poor) of JNNURM is on, the integrated development of slums through projects for providing shelter, basic services and other related civic amenities with a view to providing utilities to the urban poor. The funding pattern is 50:50 for BSUP between Government of India and State Government. The State budget commitment for JNNURM-BSUP is Rs. 300 crore for the plan period. Further, GoTN plans to construct houses for the urban slum families in towns Integrated Housing and Slum Development Programme (IHSDP), other than Chennai, Madurai and Coimbatore under this programme. This programme will be funded by Government of India and the State Government in the rate of 80:20 with a total cost of Rs. 1500 crore. An outlay of Rs. 300 crore has been provided as the State Government share under IHSDP during the plan period. The Eleventh Plan target for construction of houses under this scheme is 187500 houses. 176

7.6 Urban Poverty Reduction Strategy MDGs-based reduction of urban poverty for Tamil Nadu is going to have a large and growing significance. While an extensive array of rural poverty reduction schemes has been designed, similar emphasis has not been there for the urban poor. It is clear that people migrate to the urban areas for better income-earning opportunities as also for better education opportunities. The urban strategy has to cover both slum and non-slum areas. The hierarchical structure for designing an urban PRS-MASTER can be indicated as below. a. Managing Macro Drivers: Economic activities and employment opportunities in cities and urban agglomerations can be enhanced only by attracting investment in the respective areas. Urban infrastructure is the key to attracting such investment. The state government has to invest heavily in urban infrastructure, not only for the needs for the existing population but in a forward looking perspective. This will require development of wide-intersection free roads, network of higher education and technical education institutions, additional hospitals, additional power generation, and adequate water supply. Adequacy of power and skilled labour will provide stimulus to investment in the concerned area. Cities should be expanded around the periphery with ring roads and road networks. Location of industrial clusters around the periphery of towns and social infrastructure (hospitals, schools) will help generate necessary multiplier effects. b. Augmenting Fiscal Space: Urban bodies have a larger resource base than rural bodies. Still fiscal transfers should also be enhanced for them from the central and as well as the states governments. Urban bodies provide local public goods not only to their residents but also a large segment of floating population who may be commuting from nearby rural areas. The revenue of the Municipalities and Corporations is derived from following major sources: 1. property tax, 2. profession tax, 3. Non-tax revenue like water charges, fees, rents etc., 4. Assigned revenues like entertainment tax, surcharge on stamp duty, advertisement tax, and cable tax, 5. Devolution of funds from State and Central Government (Based on State and Central Finance Commission Recommendations), and 177
