Over 300 suggestions and objections were submitted on the new regulations, which were going to promote the use of Transfer of Development rights (TDR).
“After scrutiny, 200 suggestions were found to be worth considering,” said Rajendra Nimbalkar, CEO of the Slum Rehabilitation Authority (SRA).
The rules also introduced deadlines for completing the projects to make sure SRA projects are not unnecessarily prolonged. At present, 269 sq ft tenaments are offered for slums. It will be increased by 31 sq ft per house.
