Delhi Chief Minister directed allotment of flats to slum dwellers
According to Realty from The Economic Times, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal organised a meeting with the Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board (DUSIB) to order officials to quickly alot the flats that have been developed for slum dwellers and those in the economically weaker sections (EWS).
Kejriwal also administered DUSIB officials to guarantee units to slum dwellers located within a five-kilometre radius of slum areas.
“The ‘Jahan Jhuggi Wahin Makaan’ policy is the flagship policy of Delhi government. We have to ensure that the construction of the EWS flats for in-situ rehabilitation of the people should be completed in its due timeline. This has to be ensured so that we can provide shelter for every poor in Delhi,” stated Kejriwal.
A total of 89,400 flats, in an area of 237 acres, will be established in three phases and is expected to finish around 2022-2025.
The organised meeting also included the Delhi urban development minister, DUSIB vice-chairperson Satyendar Jain, as well as other Delhi government officials and DUSIB board members.
Last month, another meeting was held to decide the construction of the EWS flat to be executed on DUSIB’s available land. Out of the 221 acres of land vacant with DUSIB, 115 acres of land is currently being considered for this construction.
