Speaking to mediapersons, Law and Parliamentary Affairs Minister J. C. Madhuswamy said, “the towns with population of 1 lakh will come under this scheme. Centre’s share is Rs. 4,617 Crore and the State’s share is Rs. 3,692 crore. The towns will get a facelift with drinking water and underground drainage schemes and other amenities. These towns do not include corporations or municipalities, he clarified.

Meanwhile, Minister Madhuswamy said that under section 387 of the Karnataka Town Municipal Corporation Act, people constructing houses in their farm or single house need not have to get approval from the Town Planning Authority (TPA) but can get it done at the local gram panchayat.
