Gujarat first to take up PPP projs for slum rehabilitation

Gujarat has become the first state in the country to take up PPP projects for in-situ redevelopment of slums in urban areas under the Prime MinisterĀ“s Awas Yojana (Urban). The inter-ministerial Central Screening and Monitoring Committee of the Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation chaired by Dr Nandita Chatterjee approved 30 PPP projects proposed by the Gujarat Government for rehabilitation of slum dwellers in Ahmedabad, Surat, Rajkota and Vadodara.

17,580 new dwelling units will be constructed for slum dwellers living on government lands in these four cities by private developers. The Union Government will provide an assistance of about `176 crore. Land will be monetised for meeting the remaining cost of slum rehabilitation projects and consequently, slum dwellers will get new houses with all amenities free of cost.
