Dharavi redevelopment to kickstart with survey

Apr 2024 | No Comment

The Dharavi Redevelopment Project Pvt Ltd (DRPPL), a joint venture between the state government and the Adani Group, on Monday announced that a survey would be launched on March 18 to collect data from the lakhs of slum dwellers living in Dharavi. The data will be used by the government to determine the rehabilitation eligibility of the residents. The survey will also create, for the first time ever, a ‘Digital Dharavi,’ an advanced library of one of the world’s largest informal settlements.

The survey will begin from Kamla Raman Nagar, with a unique number being allotted to each slum tenement. This will be followed by laser-mapping of the respective lanes, known as a ‘Lidar Survey’. A trained team will visit every tenement with an indigenously developed application to scan documents.

Dharavi encompasses several thousand industrial and commercial units manufacturing garments and leather items. Many are vendors for large national and international brands sold across the world, with turnovers estimated to be in millions of dollars. They are keen to formalise their businesses to expand and get a fillip, both locally and globally.
