Mumbai DP 2034: Right of tenants taken away under redevelopment scheme
The Maharashtra government says 51 per cent is far more democratic, and instead questioned what was the logic behind 70 per cent. “51 per cent is democratic, having more than 50 per cent consent for redevelopment is a good move,” said Sanjay Kumar, additional chief secretary, housing department. For cluster redevelopment, the requirement is of 51 per cent consent of tenants of each building and overall 70 per cent consent of tenants in redevelopment projects under 33 (9).
The Development Plan 2034 has a lot for developers, but at the same time, it has taken away the right of tenants under the redevelopment scheme. Image source: Reuters
