A Case of Efficiency in Spending
This chapter focuses on Ahmedabad, which is the largest city in Gujarat. The chapter begins with a section on the socio-economic characteristics of the city, including a profile of its labour force. This is followed by the city's governance and institutional arrangements — the city is administered by the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) — and its corresponding services. A comprehensive list of these services is provided in the chapter. The next section is on the contributions of land sales and/or leasing to the revenues of the AMC. The chapter concludes with a detailed discussion of the relationship of expenditure and service delivery, and examines the available expenditure on various services such as water supply, sanitation, municipal roads, solid waste management, and sewerage.
