Slum Area Development in Pune
Share this

The Rural Development Department for Slum Improvement in Pune has approved Development Control Insurance for slum areas. The insurance policy is in line with the provisions of 14.6.11 (2). If a slum area is developed, the landowner will be given a Transfer of Development Rights (TDR) certificate. The TDR will be 1.5 times the in-situ land area and 1 time the non-land area. However, the Slum Act, 1971, and the guidelines from the Civil Aviation Department do not mention TDR for such lands. Therefore, a new procedure has been proposed to address this issue.

The new procedure is as follows:

  1. If the landlord and developer have agreed on the sale of privately owned slum land, a slum clearance plan is not required. The only recourse is land acquisition under Chapter V of the Slum Prevention Act. In Pune, 1-2 cases per year were followed up after carrying out the slum clearance process as per the provisions of the Slum Act.
  2. In the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) and Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) areas, there is very little sale and purchase of old slum areas. The rates of life across the annual value chart are very low, and developers are reluctant to deal with landowners as the viability is low.
  3. If there are reservations for hut-occupied land, the landlord should approach the Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC) with a proposal. 33% to 40% of the area of the rent is offered at minimum cost, and such spaces are treated as pious percentages. However, these percentages are not being entered.
  4. The embryo transfer process is long and enables the rapid transfer of the embryo. Similarly, in the 2014 Act, a Land TDR provision of 0.25% was made for such lands. Even if the payment is low, such opportunities could be achieved by promotion.
  5. After acquiring ownership of slum-occupied land by the promoter, a proper scheme for implementation should be in place. More options for implementation will be available before promotion, and such meetings are required for project projects.
  6. The state government has approved the Integrated Development Management and Promotion Scheme, 2020. There are provisions regarding the distribution of Land TDR. However, as there is a separate insurance for slum amplification, a separate procedure has been proposed in this regard.

The procedure for the landowner voluntarily offering the slum area for development is as follows:

  1. The fertilization process will be carried out as per the provisions of the Schedule, and the owner can choose the tenant who is ready to pay the provision of TDR.
  2. The landlord should ensure that there is no pending court case in this matter and submit a proposal for the voluntary transfer of the slum to the Slum Purification Department. The landlord will have to pay charges/fees from all government departments in respect of the said transfer and submit an indemnity bond to compensate for any failure of the slum construction project.
  3. The slum should be verified as per the provisions of the Slum Abandonment Act, 1971, and designated as a Puisian area. More than 50% of the total population and more than 100 million slum areas should be accessible for the plan area. The matter regarding the scheme should be verified during the promotion session.
  4. The landowner should pay the government survey fees in respect of such land and take measurements from the related land survey to record the area covered by the field. A cadastral map will be prepared as far as possible showing the details of the slums.
  5. The landlord should submit a Legal Search Report regarding the ownership rights of such premises from persons with disabilities. Any restriction to the transfer process shown in the larval stage of amplification with respect to the site of Kariya should be disclosed, and the consent of all parties to the same should be certified as pending.

The new procedure aims to streamline the development of slum areas in Pune and provide a fair and transparent process for landowners and developers.
