A generalized global trend can be discerned from recent attempts at decentralization by nations across the world.

State governments and parochial administrative units are today expected to create an enabling environment that facilitates and attracts increased private investment; both domestic and foreign; that can replace scarce public capital.
Availability of both physical and social infrastructure is central to sustainable economic growth. For a city to be optimally productive, it is of utmost importance that it has very sound infrastructure facilities at all levels. A good network of roads and an efficient Mass Urban Transport System play a vital role in the working efficiency of a large city for its economic and social development.
Rising income levels and increases in demand for travel has meant an increase in the use of personal vehicle, and a concomitant decrease in the use of public transport systems. The consequences have been universally disastrous in terms of congestion on city roads and resultant vehicular pollution.
The remedy lies in the development of public transport systems that are highly efficient, convenient and affordable.
