Sharma said the request for such an authority has been made with a view to streamline the transport network in the state's urban areas.
It was decided during the meeting that senior officials of state government and the central urban development ministry will meet on November 26 in New Delhi to take the project-related discussions forward.
During next month's meeting, a review of the progress made in the urban development sector in Himachal Pradesh will also be done.
Sharma said he had requested Nath to provide relaxation for the setting up of the Urban Mobility Transport Authority in hilly states of the country, keeping in view the tough geographical and topographical conditions in these states.
He also said that since activities under the JNURM have been extended to small towns and municipal limits, the Centre should allow the relaxations.
He said he was confident that such an authority would ensure dedicated services to urban commuters.
The state govt has already submitted DPRs of various development projects in the state and has met the full criteria fixed by the Centre in this regard.
He appealed for liberal funding for the urban transport network in the state keeping in view the rapid migration to urban areas of the state.
Nath assured that the Centre will relax norms to set up the Urban Mobility Transport Authority in hilly states.
