Chairing a meeting with a delegation of the World Bank to conclude the second joint implementation support mission for the Punjab Municipal Services Improvement Project (PMSIP), the Chief Secretary said that The PMSIP is a 300 million dollar project jointly funded by The World Bank, Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and GoP. 

He said that this ambitious project aims to improve drinking water supply for the towns of Amritsar and Ludhiana by building new surface water treatment plants and other bulk water supply infrastructure to improve the quantity and quality of water supply in these cities. 

He further said that the project will also undertake urban e-governance initiatives such as asset management and capital investment planning and help set up 100% ULB owned and dedicated water utilities for the two cities that will be accountable to citizens for improved water supply.
