Mumbai: Now, SRA to acquire slum plots reserved for amenities

Dated on: Monday 5th June 2023

In accordance with the Development Control and Promotion Regulations 2034 (DCPR-2034), the Slum Redevelopment Authority (SRA) has announced its decision to acquire privately owned plots that have been earmarked for public amenities but are currently burdened by slum encroachments. This move aims to address the issue of slums and ensure the effective utilization of such designated spaces. Notably, three years ago, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) acquired a plot in Dahisar for a significant sum of Rs 349 crore, despite its original value being assessed at Rs 54 crore due to the presence of encroachments. This transaction has drawn the attention of BJP leader Kirit Somaiya, who has filed a police complaint against the BMC, raising concerns about the purchase of a plot that had already been designated as a slum.
