The Redevelopment Project
The Adani group, in collaboration with the Maharashtra government, is redeveloping the Dharavi slums. The new flats will be 17% larger than those offered in previous slum redevelopment projects, with a size of 350 sq ft, a kitchen, and a toilet.
Improved Living Conditions
Informal settlement dwellers were previously given houses measuring 269 sq ft, but since 2018, the state government has been providing homes ranging from 315-322 sq ft. The redeveloped area will also include community halls, recreational areas, public gardens, dispensaries, and daycare centers for children.
The cut-off date for determining eligible residents is January 1, 2000. Ineligible residents will be provided accommodation under the proposed affordable rental housing policy, in line with state government norms.
The Dharavi Redevelopment Project, a joint venture between the Adani Group and the Maharashtra government, won the contract to rebuild the largest slum clusters in Asia in November 2022.
