KEIIP (Kolkata Environmental Improvement Investment Programme) is conceived as a logical extension to the ongoing works to cover balance area i.e. about 37 sq.km. which is still devoid of any organised S & D facility. It is also seen that the current water loss service level is far beyond the target due to - system loss (mainly from house connections and stand posts); uneven distribution of supply water; inadequate reservoir capacity; old piping system causing frictional loss and low residual friction, Intermittent supply etc.

    Kolkata, the seventh largest city in India, is one of the country’s cultural wonders. Now, thanks to innovative taxation and urban services reforms, it is on its way to becoming a smart city. Kolkata officially shifted to an online unit-area based property tax system on 1 April 2017. The introduction of this state-of-the-art system is a milestone moment for the city, which for the past two decades has partnered with ADB on urban reforms and infrastructure development.

  • Our water-sensitive, climate-resilient dream for Kolkata

    Published on Tuesday, 27 December 2016 by Neeta Pokhrel
    Senior Urban Development Specialist, South Asia Regional Department

    By December 2026, we hope Kolkata will be transformed into a smart, resilient, green, water-sensitive, and (more) competitive urban center and a model for other Indian megacities. Kolkata will have a 24/7 water supply, fully metered and monitored using smart technologies, and less than 20% non-revenue water. It will collect and treat all its sewage and have state-of-the-art stormwater drains. Kolkata will have exemplary solid waste management facilities and services, including recycling and resource recovery. It will be a climate-resilient city, equipped with early warning systems and capable staff to look after its nearly 5 million residents when climate change-related disasters strike.
