Slums on 50 Acre Land of Prime location will get flat by December!
Municipal Corporation has identified more than 35 such slums that shall be rehabilitated and will ‘free’ the city from its slums. The land occupied by slums costs close to the market price of Rs. 500 crore. The Government will get nearly 50 acre land in prime location of the city in this campaign. After biometric identification slum dwellers will be shifted in multi-storey flats are being under BSUP Scheme.
All matter depends on Municipal Corporation who is handling this entire campaign. If the initiative I gets into complication such as that in Telibandha Project – then the rehabilitation might face a problem. Although the way the administration has forcefully shifted occupants that lived for years on the canal along with IAC Colony in Amrit Homes at Amledhi, expected removal of the remaining slum dwellers will not be much trouble.
Under BSUP corporation has completed more than 5000 houses. Planning is under way to shift 35 slums situated in city’s prime location in these houses. After shifting of these 35 Slums Corporation will get valuable land worth of crores. This land will be used for schemes beside public services.
The following slums are imagined to be shifted:
|Rajiv Gandhi Nagar||350|
|Indrawati colony se Rajeev Nagar||245|
|Civil Lines Dewra Basti||30|
|Gurumukh Singh Nagar||128|
|Nutan Rice Mill ke pas||25|
