On June 2, PRIA and SPARC held a State Level Consultation at Jaipur for Strengthening Civil Society Voices on Urban Poverty in India. Various aspects about Rajiv Awas Yojana, facilities to the slum dwellers, number of slums, participation of the slum dwellers themselves in the development process and aspects of tenure and livelihood were discussed.
Mr. Sandhu, the State Principal Urban Development Secretary was positive and declared that a the government is undertaking a ‘Pilot Project at Sanjay Nagar in Jaipur’. He was of the opinion that the State Government should not just provide housing but also give tenure rights to the slum dwellers and should prepare an Act for the same.
Hope Civil Society keeps a watch on these plans by the government and ensures active participation of the slum dwellers and the civil society at large!!
