What is Slum Rehabilitation?

With an ever increasing number of slums emerging almost daily across the metros in the country, it was imperative that the Government took prudent steps to check this occurrence. Due to unavoidable circumstances, the dwellers in these slums, lead an unhygienic lifestyle and have poor standards of living.

Keeping this in mind, the Government of Maharashtra has brought an amendment to the Maharashtra Regional and Town Planning Act 56 and introduced a nodal agency Slum Rehabilitation Authority (SRA). SRA brought forth a Slum Rehabilitation Programme that analyzes and reviews existing positions of slum areas in the city. The SRA then devises plans for rehabilitation of these identified slum areas and ensures that the slum rehabilitation scheme planned is executed to the best of SRA abilities. The Slum Rehabilitation Authority (SRA), in India enables property developers to rehabilitate slum-dwellers in-situ and compensates the landowner and developer by awarding them with the Transferable Development Rights (TDR).

Need for Slum Rehabilitation:
A rapidly urbanising population and the inadequacy of city governments to meet its demands have meant a critical housing and infrastructure shortage. It is estimated that there are roughly 100 million slum dwellers in the country.

The Slum dwellers are important contributors to the development of the city by rendering their services to the citizens & organizations. To bring this weaker section in to the mainstream of the society, it is necessary to give them at least proper shelter. The contributions of slum dwellers to the city’s economy – as industrial workers, construction site labourers, domestic servants, rag-pickers, hawkers and a wide range of small scale trades is vital to the city.

We at Naiknavare believe that Slum Rehabilitation is imperious to raise the slum dwellers standard of living and increase their confidence level through a permanent authorised structure. Inculcate a sense of hygiene, cleanliness and discipline. This will also fulfil the dreams of a better living for citizens from the economically weaker section of the society.

Benefits of Slum Rehabilitation:
The new housing follows a high-rise building design using optimal ground footprint and frees up land for commercial building and other development. The SRA model is a financially sustainable model, which requires no government funding and gives new homes to slum dwellers free of cost.
