Mumbai, Mar 29 (UNI) Union Minister for Urban Development Jaipal Reddy today said the centre will allot more funds for improving city's infrastructure, on the lines of Brihanmumbai Storm Water Drain (BRIMSTOWAD).

Speaking at the stone laying function of the world's largest water purifying plant in Bhandup in the Eastern suburbs, Mr Reddy said the Union Government will also allocate funds for the Mumbai Sewerage Disposal Project (MSDP), on the lines of BRIMSTOWAD, and there will not be any paucity of funds for development.

Commenting on the migration, Mr Reddy said it is a global phenomenon and that there is no way to stop the same. He said India has only 30 per cent urbanisation as compared to 50 per cent in other countries and the only way to stop migration is to make more cities urbanised and have job opportunities for the locals.'' The work of water treatment and purifying plant will be completed on time and there will be no shortage of funds for the same, he added.

The under construction water treatment plant will increase the capacity of the treatment plant from 990MLD to 3000 MLD and is being constructed at a cost of Rs 459.59 crore.
