There were eight Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) around Bangalore, namely, Byatarayanapura, Bommanahalli, Dasarahalli, Kengeri, K.R.Puram, Mahadevapura, Rajarajeshwarinagara and Yelahanka, which have now been merged under the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Paalike (BBMP).  Each of these have been on the fast track to growth and development. While the 2001 census estimated the population in these areas to be 12 lakhs, studies showed that these areas lacked even the basic infrastructural services such as a piped water system and an underground drainage system.  Projections showed that by 2020, the population in these eight erstwhile ULBs would touch the 30 lakh mark, which is an increase of 18 lakhs in just two decades.


The Greater Bangalore Water and Sanitation Project (GBWASP), Implemented by the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB), has two components; a Water Supply component and an Underground Drainage (UGD) component.

The Water supply component has a very creative structure for financing.  The USAID has an important role in the design of the structure.  The UGD component has been funded by the World Bank under the Karnataka Municipal Reforms Project.

Government in its order UDD. 27 MNI 2000 Bangalore 26.12.2003 had accorded approval for Implementation of water supply and sanitation for 7 CMC & 1 TMC falling within BMA at a total cost of 658.64 Crores as detailed below. The water supply component is enhanced from Rs 340.55 Crores to Rs 536.98 Crores. Objective of the project is to provide network to an area of 250.00 Sq Km covering 8 ULBs.
