Agra City

Uttar Pradesh aims at providing quality urban services such as 24X7 water supply, sanitation, drainage, solid waste management, sewage treatment.

Looking at the finances of urban local bodies, which are far from healthy, provision of these services will be challenging.

Levying of user charges to recover cost of provision of these services will be crucial to maintain quality of these services.

In the process of developing smart cities, the focus should not divert from providing urban services in other cities and make them more livable.
