Recognising the need for a dedicated and user friendly website that can provide requisite information to people related to urban water supply and sanitation at National level, CPHEEO website (http://cpheeo.nic.in) is launched here, today.
Launching the website, Urban Development Secretary M Ramachandran said that the website would greatly help sensitising the States and cities in the context of ongoing programmes under Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewable Mission (JNNURM).
Developed by National Informatics Centre (NIC), the pilot project was started in 1988-89 to put in place an MIS system on urban water supply and sanitation sector with the help of WHO. The IIM Ahmedabad has developed the MIS modules, said a government release.
For the development of the website, funds were earmarked in the ministry's budget by the Planning Commission in successive Five Year Plan right from Seventh Five Year Plan to Tenth Five Year Plan.
