The Government of Maharashtra has launched a comprehensive slum rehabilitation scheme by introducing an innovative concept of using land as a resource and allowing incentive floor space index (FSI) in the form of tenements for sale in the open market, for cross-subsidization of the slum rehabilitation tenements which are to be provided free to the slum-dwellers. Through necessary statutory amendments the Government has established Slum Rehabilitation Authority (SRA) to serve as a planning authority for all slum areas in Greater Mumbai and to facilitate the slum rehabilitation schemes.
It is the endeavor of SRA to implement the slum rehabilitation schemes by providing a single window clearance for all types of approvals that are required for the project namely formation of co-operative societies, certification of eligibility of slum-dwellers, taking punitive action on non-participating slum-dwellers obstructing the scheme, survey and measurement on slum lands grant of building permissions, leasing of rehabilitation plots and free-sale plots and updating of property cards (PR cards).
The powers, duties and functions of the Slum Rehabilitation Authority are : To survey and review existing position regarding Slum areas in greater Mumbai; To formulate schemes for rehabilitation of slum areas; To get the slum rehabilitation scheme implemented; To do all such other acts and things as may be necessary for achieving the objective of rehabilitation of slums.
