BANGALORE:  In a move to ensure transparency and accountability in the projects initiated under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JnNURM), the Urban Development Ministry will introduce an annual JnNURM ranking of the cities to measure the stated objectives and outcomes achieved by the projects covered under the Urban Infrastructure and Governance (UIG) in the JnNURM.

Union Minister for Urban Development Kamal Nath stated this in a letter to Rajeev Chandrasekhar, MP and Convener of ABIDe, who had earlier pointed out to the minister the lack of clarity in the progress made by projects under JnNRUM and the perception that the programme was becoming another tax payer programme with little or no focus on the outcomes or objectives.

The Union minister is said to have accepted the suggestion to institute annual JnNURM ranking of the cities and instructed his ministry to chalk a mechanism to implement it.
