Slums: KHB awaiting nod on proposal

The Hindu

BANGALORE: A first of its kind policy for the development of slums is being chalked out, M. Lakshminarayana, Commissioner, KHB told The Hindu on the sidelines of the interactive workshop "Bangalore Today and Tomorrow", organised by the Bangalore Development Authority.

Mr. Lakshminarayana said that the policy would list guidelines on identifying the beneficiaries of slum redevelopment projects, on slums to be rehabilitated, on the procedure to call for tenders and construction details. The KHB had placed the proposal before the Government for approval, he said. The KHB, along with the Karnataka Slum Clearance Board, is taking up the renewal of four slums on a pilot basis, under the newly initiated Slum Redevelopment Project, undertaken by the State Government. The four slums are Ragigudda, Kudlu, Laggere and A.D. Halli in Rajajinagar.
