The ULBs of the state of Gujarat fails to comply the Hon. Supreme Court’s Order that made mandatory the scientific treatment and disposal of solid waste as per MSW-Rules-2000 due to lack of finance and technical assistance.


GoG has decided to implement the project centrally for all ULBs utilizing its own resource and by seeking the assistance from GoI.


GUDC Ltd. is appointed as a nodal agency vide the resolution dated 13/09/05 to implement the Municipal Solid Waste Management project for the ULBs of the State of Gujarat.

The project is structured centrally in a planned manner. GUDC Ltd. estimated the cost of project as 384.16 crores and the provision of funds is only 238.62 Crores from 12 th Finance Commission grants and other State funds. Also the Municipalities are lacking in technical know how and financial capacity to run this kind of facilities, once created. Various options have been considered for alternate funding as well as the technology including the sale of Carbon Credits.


The data for waste characterization and waste quantities for each ULBs have already been gathered through the state level consultants. Also the clusterization for simplify the facilities and avoid creation of junk assets is under assessment. It was felt that individual facilities can not be handled by municipalities and the capital cost would be much high. Initially 51 clusters were identified throughout the state, but after detailed assessment and study it was felt that the whole state can be managed in only 20 to 25 regional landfill sites, by using the land available.


The same may also attract the private developers as the general market survey reveals that the private developer require minimum of 100 TPD waste to run the facility on sustainable mode. As a result of this exercise initially if one ton of waste to be processed by a municipality than the estimated cost for processing one ton of waste is estimated around Rs.1200 and if we do the cluster approach than it would come down to around Rs. 450.


GUDC received proposals from private developers and best option to fill the viability gap as well as the sustainable solution is to take the project to the PPP mode probably on BOT (Build Own Transfer). Meanwhile it is also explored for the other suitable technologies if it can be adopted for minimizing the waste to be land filled.


GUDC Ltd. had approached the World Bank also to give consultation for potential purchase of Carbon Credit.130 ULBs of Gujarat State generate 1520 TPD of MSW, i.e. 547200 Mt of MSW is generated per annum. If we process all the MSW then 179613.08 MT compost will be produced. As per the World Bank Calculation & considering US$10.00 (ten United States dollars) per ton as the realizable value for one ton of Carbon Credit, GUDC can approximately earn carbon credits for 165000 MT & get revenue of US$1,650,000.00 (Rs. 7,42,50,000.00) per year till the period of agreement.


Salient Features of the MSWM Project :

  • Providing basic action plan for Door to Door waste collection, segregation, transportation, processing & reuse/ disposal in ULBs
  • Procurement of tools and equipments / vehicles for municipalities for primary as well as secondary collection of wastes.
  • Construction of Compost Plant per municipality for composting the bio degradable wastes. Production of compost and creating market for the same.
