Delhi Government approved Slum Policy for in situ rehabilitation of slum dwellers

Sep 24, 2015 17:03 IST

The Delhi Government on 22 September 2015 approved a slum policy for in situ rehabilitation of slum dwellers. The decision on the new policy was taken at a meeting of the Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board (DUSIB).

The DUSIB meeting was chaired by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and was also attended by Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia.

As per the policy announced, the relocation of the slums will only be done if there is any court order or the concerned cluster has intruded a street, footpath, park etc. or the encroached land is required by an agency for a public project.

Further, the flats constructed under Jawaharlal Nehru Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) will be offered at revised rates to registered wait-listed applicants of 1985 Special Registration Scheme.

The cut-off date of eligibility for rehabilitation and relocation of slum clusters is 14 February 2015, superseding the earlier date of 4 June 2009 as notified in the 2013 guidelines. This means that all slums that came up till the day the AAP government took charge will not face demolition now.
