Glad to know Dharavi slums are being cleared. What about drainage and properly planned roads. Is this included in the scheme of things. Many big projects in India and South Asia are poorly executed with exception of Sri Lanka

12-years-on-maharashtra-floats-bids-for-dharavi-redevelopment/

http://indianexpress.com/article/cities/mumbai/12-years-on-maharashtra-floats-bids-for-dharavi-redevelopment/
Twelve years after the plan was mooted, the state government Saturday floated bids to rope in developers for the much-delayed metamorphosis of Dharavi, known on the global tourist map as Asia’s largest slum. The BJP-Sena government aims to complete the revamp in seven years.
The Dharavi Redevelopment Project Authority, the nodal agency for the project, has invited tenders to redevelop four of the five sectors of Dharavi, comprising nearly 75 per cent of the 240-hectare slum sprawl, on a public-private partnership basis, the model originally proposed 12 years ago. The fifth cluster is being redeveloped by the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA). The authority, which will pick one developer for each sector, has fixed April 7 as the last date for bid submission.

“The developer will be in charge of constructing free tenements for eligible slumdwellers as well as providing various amenities and infrastructure, roads, water supply, sewerage, schools, hospitals, commercial tenements and so on. The developer who offers the highest value to the state government will be picked after scrutinising his technical and financial qualifications,” an official from the project authority said.
Under the project, developers will be allowed a Floor Space Index (FSI) of 4 and will have to build free houses of 300 square feet carpet area for slumdwellers eligible for free rehousing, with another 50 square feet to be added in each flat through fungible FSI in the form of flowerbeds, niches and so on. FSI refers to the ratio of the permissible construction area to the plot size. The government has clarified that the developer will not get any additional compensatory FSI or sale incentive on this fungible FSI.
While developers can bid for more than one sector, the authority will award four selected developers one sector each.
Besides constructing rehab tenements, the sale component, amenities and infrastructure, the developer in charge of every sector will have complete responsibility for that particular sector.
“The developer will be required to hold consultations with the slumdwellers and the non-slum occupants and seek their cooperation, and prepare a list of all slumdwellers in the sector and occupants of other buildings and chawls within eight months of signing the development agreement,” the official said.
The chosen developer will also be in charge of getting all boundaries demarcated by the superintendent of land records, maps of all slum structures and chawls, layout plans of rehabilitation and sale buildings, and obtaining all necessary permissions and approvals, he added.
Moreover, on completion of the project, the developer in charge will also be liable to maintain all rehab buildings, amenity buildings, streetlights, fire fighting systems and so on for five years.
As per state government estimates, the Dharavi redevelopment project will lead to creation of about 1.08 lakh houses, of which 40,000 will form part of the four developers’ sale component across the four sectors. Of the remaining 68,000 houses, the government will require about 55,000 to house eligible slumdwellers, while the rest will add to its affordable housing stock.
This is the second attempt of the government at bidding out the Dharavi revamp project. In 2007, the former Congress-NCP government had invited Expressions of Interest for the project, prompting 14 developers to respond, of which seven later backed out. The bids were found to be faulty, and were ultimately cancelled in 2011.

As many as 16 real estate developers have shown interest in redevelopment of 147.77 hectares at Dharavi — Asia’s largest slum cluster — which is worth Rs 22,000 crore .
A pre-bid meeting held by the state-implementing agency, Dharavi Redevelopment Project (DRP) on Saturday, was attended by developers from India and all over the world. Pre-bid meetings are held with a purpose to clarify any concerns of bidders (developers) in case of Dharavi. In the meetings, the developers discuss the scope of work, ask for more details and various doubts are cleared by the implementing agency.
“In the pre-bid meet held on Saturday, 16 real estate companies showed interest, (including) PricewaterhouseCoopers private limited, Larsen & Toubro Realty, Tata Realty and Infrastructure limited, Oberoi Realty, Kalpaturu Real Estate Company and Neptune Developers,” said Nirmal Deshmukh, chief executive officer, DRP.
Evaluation of bids will be done on technical and financial qualification and no bidder will be selected as developer for more than one sector. The project will be implemented through the PPP model and will get a Floor Space Index of 4. It will be redeveloped under development control regulation (DCR) 33 (9) (A) and 33 (10) (A). Other real estate developers who participated in the pre-bid meeting, were Omkar Realty, B.G. Shirke Construction Technology private limited, Bay Villa Properties, Alvino Realtors, Agafiya Trading Private limited, Kay Bee Developers, Era Developers and Nina Waterproofing Systems.
Under the redevelopment, 60,000 families residing in Dharavi will get houses of 350 square feet each as part of their rehabilitation. They will be rehabilitated within seven years from the date of signing the development agreement.
The state government has divided the 557-acre plot into five sectors for redevelopment. Of these, sectors one to four are with the DRP while Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (Mhada) has already started redeveloping the remaining sector.
Six years ago, around 100 developers had shown interest for the redevelopment of Dharavi namely Indiabulls Real Estate, Lodha Group, Neptune Builders, DB Realty, Kalpataru and Runwal Group. However, the Congress-Nationalist Congress Party government cancelled the tenders back in 2011 due to a delay in implementing the project.

The Dharavi slums, nestled between two railway stations. At first glance walking into the Main Street you could be anywhere in Asia. In Fact the way the homes are built on top of the shops in this street distinctively reminded me of Koh Rong in Cambodia. It has its own mini high street with bakers, chemist & even a cinema- which only men are allowed to use and you get free bed bugs with every ticket purchased. People stared at us walking around but no more so then anywhere else in India. I didn't once feel unsafe. There are 4 police stations patrolling the slums. The slums here are legal, in fact they produce more then $600 million US dollars per annum. 60% of Mumbai population live inside here and there's a waiting list for more people to get a spot. There are schools within the slums as well as doctors all of which are free. Each and every slum, no matter how shifty it looked, or how high it was had an address meaning that yes, even ASOS deliver to the slums. A far cry from what is depicted in the Slum dog millionaire film- but people don't realise that the film was set 30 years ago. We were shown around the horrific working conditions which were worse then I could have ever imagined, melting aluminium in small dank rooms or sorting through household waste with bare hands- yet each one still had wifi? The tiny passages between buildings were smaller then you would imagine, the ceilings were lower and the smell was worse, but everyone here was so happy, children are laughing, everyone just buzzing along as normal. Whilst the open sewage system,dirty puddles and live electricity wires were highly dangerous, you got a general sense of a great SAFE community. Overall the slums were both better and worse then I anticipated. The rooms are smaller, the walk ways narrower, there are piles of rubbish everywhere &the public toilet hasn't been maintained in 20 years however there's no theft, no crime, not even any begging. Watching a child happily sit in a black puddle surrounded by waste and play with 2 marbles for 10 minutes just makes you realise what's really important in life. One of the best things I've done is visit the slums,it's given me a whole new perspectiv - See more at: http://iconosquare.com/p/12058719649....5bknjGHu.dpuf

MHADA was given the mandate to redevelop this sector and they constructed a 18-storey building with a total 354 homes.

On Wednesday, MHADA carried out the lottery after which it distributed 266 homes and this was first-ever distribution of homes on Dharavi.

The homes are 300 sq ft and will be given to slum dwellers for free. On January 30, Dharavi Redevelopment Project's Chief Executive Officer came out with a global tender for redevelopment of the remaining 4 sectors.

From-mumbai-shanties-to-18-storey-building-255-families-from-dharavi-move-into-new-home

http://indianexpress.com/article/cities/mumbai/from-mumbai-shanties-to-18-storey-building-255-families-from-dharavi-move-into-new-homes-2783293/
homes

After living for over two decades in his claustrophobic Dharavi shanty, 32-year-old Babu Mandipla had a childish grin plastered on his face as he took in the big windows and easy ventilation of what was now his own house. That too, in a Mumbai skyscraper. With his two hands firmly on his mother Padma’s shoulder, Mandipla said, “We really had no hope that we would actually get this house.”
Even as its overall plan of giving momentum to the decade-old Dharavi redevelopment plan is on shaky ground, the state government on Tuesday, in a low-profile function, moved a handful of residents to the only building ready under the much-delayed Dharavi redevelopment plan. The erstwhile Congress-NCP government had started the construction of this building before the 2014 polls to show some movement in the Rs 25,000-crore project during its reign.

The Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) handed over keys to new 300-sqft homes to 255 families from the neighbouring Shatabdi Nagar slum. The authority is in charge of redeveloping Sector 5, the easiest of Dharavi’s five sectors, while the other four are to be revamped with private developers on a public-private partnership model.

The authority gave possession of the new houses, each built at a cost of about Rs 22 lakh, with an old-fashioned ‘griha pravesh’ for every family, a rangoli drawn in front of all flats and red ribbons to cut. Every key handed out by MHADA was accompanied by sweets to celebrate the new beginning, and officials performed an ‘aarti’ as a welcome gesture every time a family entered its new home.
Soon after she collected the key to her first-floor house, 66-year-old Ratnamma sent her daughter to fetch her stove from their shanty, a stone’s throw from the new residence. The first thing that she did in her new home was to boil milk, make some food, and call her friends over.
“I will be a little sad to leave some of my friends in my slum behind. But it feels good. I will now know what it is to live in a building,” she said, sitting on the kitchen floor, with her friends surrounding her.
While the 18-storey building has 358 flats, only 266 of the 504 families that MHADA surveyed from the slum sprawl earmarked were found eligible for free housing under the Dharavi redevelopment scheme. Another 140 families have appealed against MHADA’s decision of declaring them ineligible. Of the 266, only 255 could take possession of their houses as seven were absent, two are dead and another two had not completed formalities.
Chandrakant Dange, joint chief officer of MHADA’s Mumbai board, said, “All the families who have taken possession will hand over their shanties to us within three days. MHADA has also arranged for vehicles to shift their belongings to the new building.”
Soon after, the authority hopes to demolish the entire slum and clear space for a new high-rise, giving all ineligible residents an affidavit that the authority will give them a free 300-sqft house in Dharavi if found eligible after their appeal, officials said.
The Dharavi slumdwellers who have taken possession of their new bright airy homes, however, form less than 0.5 per cent of the total residents of Asia’s largest slum sprawl, who the state government intends to rehabilitate in well-planned buildings with wide roads and open spaces.
For the rest, the prospect of a new permanent home is still a distant dream even 12 years after the scheme was first planned and individual slum rehabilitation schemes were stayed to avoid piecemeal development.
Residents of Sector 5 now pin their hopes on two new buildings that MHADA has started work on, and plans for four more under works.
For the other four sectors, the state government’s most recent attempt at bidding out the scheme drew a blank, with not even a single developer having come forward. The government is now biding time till Thursday, having extended the last date of submission to May 5, in the hope that potential bidders change their minds.

People have to pay 7.5-8.5 million rupees to find a home that size and these guys get it for free. How? Take over an area and if you can afford to live in disgusting houses for years.
