Maharashtra govt sets up committee to carry out impact analysis of increasing slum tenement size

MUMBAI: The state government has set up a committee to carry out an Impact Analysis if it decides to increase the size of the free tenement under the Slum Rehabilitation Scheme from the present 29 sq metres (269 sq feet) to 30 sq metres (323 sq feet).

The committee comprising the chief executive officer, SRA, additional municipal commissioner, BMC, additional metropolitan commissioner, MMRDA and the deputy director (Planning) SRA as member secretary will ascertain its impact on ongoing SRA schemes, sanctioned schemes and future schemes.

Under the Housing for All scheme of the central government, families from low income group are entitled to 323 sq feet tenements. In Maharashtra the government has decided to use additional housing stock that is generated from an SRS for the affordable housing scheme. There has been a demand for bringing the slum rehab tenement on par with the low income houses. The state government has agreed in-principle to increase the tenement size.

Sources said this would impact the floor space index that would need to be made available for the scheme to be viable and impact the civic infrastructure. The committee will submit its report within three months.
