Revised plan likely for illegal colony

( 0 Votes )


NEW DELHI: Delhi Development Authority is likely to submit a revised scheme for Kathputli Colony, incorporating the design guidelines and observations that Delhi Urban Art Commission (DUAC) made soon after turning down its original proposal in September.

DUAC had asked DDA about the policy underlying its proposal to rehabilitate slum dwellers in a high-rise development, and stressed on taking into account their socio-economic conditions. Commission members sad there has to be a system to ensure the habitability of the new complex in the long term by maintaining its mechanical and other systems, such as lifts.

DUAC found the allocation of colony land for rehabilitation and revenue ambiguous and asked DDA to inform it in writing about the ground coverage and floor-area ratios (FAR) permitted on the land components meant for rehabilitation, and remunerative and commercial uses. It recommended better utilization of the ground space from an urban design point of view “to achieve better urban profile and better design with lower height for the remunerative part”.

Kathputli Colony is an unauthorized settlement encroaching upon 5.22 hectares of land meant for mixed use. DDA is rehabilitating the slum dwellers in situ through a public-private partnership project, the first of its kind in Delhi. It plans to relocate the residents temporarily in nearby Anand Parbat while the construction is on and later allot them flats in the multi-storey buildings to be built at the site.
