Pune, 24th September 2021: The Maharashtra state government on Friday approved the inclusion of revised regulations in the Unified DC Rule (Integrated Development Control Regulations) designed to speed up the slum rehabilitation scheme which was pending for nearly two years. Therefore, the stagnant rehabilitation project of slums in Pune and Pimpri-Chinchwad is likely to get a boost.  The Slum Rehabilitation Authority (SRA) was set up by the government to accelerate the redevelopment of slums. However, due to frequent changes in the regulations and errors in it, the project could not be completed in the last fourteen years. To speed it up, the authority prepared revised regulations and sent them to the state government for approval. However, for the last two years, the proposal was pending with the government. As a result, the work of the SRA authority was stalled.

Recommendation of the rule: – A 300 Square foot home for each hut owner.- Consent of 51 per cent of hut owners.- No limitation for building heights.- Number of hut owners per Hectare will be increased from 350 to 500. – Punishment if the project is not completed on the given deadline.
