Gujarat seeks World Bank aid to develop infrastructure.

The Gujarat government has sought an Rs.705-crore ($146-million) aid package from the World Bank to upgrade urban infrastructure in 10 townships, a senior government official said Monday.

The official at the department of urban development said the amount, if sanctioned, would be used to upgrade infrastructure in the towns like Bhavnagar, Jamnagar, Junagadh and Veraval so that these areas could attract more industrial investments.

The state government has already told the World Bank that it would invest Rs.30 crore to upgrade infrastructure in these townships.

The government has earmarked Rs.400 crore in the budget for 2009-10 for upgrading civic amenities.
