Recently on TerraUrban you read the story of ‘Telibandha’ Slum Rehabilitation in Raipur where the evicted still await their ‘promised homes’ under Basic Services for Urban Poor (BSUP-JNNURM).
Interestingly here is another news piece of 19 April in Deshbandu-Raipur wherein the Municipal Corporation promised 298 urban poor households under BSUP-JNNURM scheme. 5000 houses are already built under JNNURM-BSUP in Amledhi and Kachna in the city and now based on lottery system residents of Ravi Nagar, SCE Colony, Durga Nagar shall be the chosen one to get that now have been promised houses.
Read the following clipping from Deshbandu
Another incident in the governing climate of Raipur, is that on the recommendation of Professor Isabella Milbert, Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Geneva has selected Raipur mayor Dr. Kiran Mayee Nayak to participate in a public conference, a two-day private forum for Mayors focused on governance practices.
Hope the city further builds on its pro-poor climate!
