The water supply sewerage department of the Nashik Municipal
Corporation in Maharashtra has called for tenders to prepare a detailed project
report for housing for urban poor under JNNURM.
Under phase-I of the project, for which Rs 335 crore has been approved, NMC
intends to create 16,000 tenements for resettlement of slum dwellers. Phase-I
was approved on November 28 by the ministry of urban development and poverty
Phase-II of the project is likely to take up clearing slums from private land
and constructing alternate living spaces through the PPP model. Slum
rehabilitation on the private route can be either the Mumbai model or any other
alternative methods like grant of additional FSI on the existing land for
developers or allotment of alternate sites, an executive engineer at Nashik
Municipal Corporation said.
