The Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA) under the Government of India has undertaken various initiatives for planned development in urban areas, focusing on urbanization.

Some of these initiatives include the Urban and Regional Development Plans Formulation and Implementation (URDPFI) guidelines of 2014, Model Building Bye-Laws (MBBL) of 2016, and several others aimed at enhancing land use efficiency, stability, capacity building, and revenue generation through land-based planning instruments.


Under the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT), efforts have been made to support states in preparing master plans for 500 AMRUT cities based on Geographic Information System (GIS). Additionally, AMRUT 2.0 focuses on providing financial and technical assistance for planning initiatives in smaller cities with populations ranging from 50,000 to 99,999.


The Ministry has also initiated the Local Area Plan (LAP) and Town Planning Schemes (TPS) to bring about regulated urban development by envisioning urban land pooling and consolidated urban development. Financial and technical support has been extended to states through special assistance programs.


Under the Special Assistance Scheme for Investment in Capital Expenditure, the Ministry has allocated funds for urban development components such as modernizing building bylaws, adopting Transferable Development Rights (TDR), implementing Local Area Plans (LAP) and Town Planning Schemes (TPS), sponge city development, and promoting non-tax revenue streams like running buses for public transport.


For further encouragement of urban planning reforms, the Ministry has sanctioned financial assistance to states under the Special Assistance Scheme for Investment in Capital Expenditure for Urban Development Improvements. This includes strengthening the urban planning ecosystem, implementing Urban Planning Schemes (TPS)/Land Pooling Scheme, rejuvenating slums, transformation-based development (TBD), and bolstering natural ecosystems in urban areas.
