This would be the second project to be developed on Public-Private Partnership after Katputhli Colony. DDA has invited a request for proposal for the in-situ development of a slum cluster. The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) has invited a request for proposal for the in-situ redevelopment of a slum cluster in Dilshad Garden that will be the second project to be developed on Public-Private Partnership (PPP) basis like Katputhli Colony.
A senior DDA official said, “The plan is to rehabilitate 3,367 slum households in this project that will be implemented on Design, Build, Finance, Operate and Transfer basis. Spread over 6.2 hectares, the project will be developed at a cost of ₹468.10 crore. All eligible slum dwellers will be rehabilitated in 60% of the land area, while the balance land will be used by the developer for commercial purpose to finance the project.”
The official added, “All eligible slum dwellers will get a dwelling unit of size approx 28 sqm (carpet area). During the development phase, they will be provided rent support of ₹6,000 per month to enable them to relocate temporarily.”
This project is part of DDA’s plan to start work on 26,000 flats for economically weaker sections as part of the in-situ redevelopment of slum clusters under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) by the end of this year. The agency will tender six such projects by the end of March, a senior DDA official said
