Urban Housing & Slums

A K Jain (Author)
Synopsis It is a paradox that the umber of homeless, squatters and slum dwellers in Indian cities is increasing in proportion to public housing programmes. In spite of ever increasing investments in housing sector, the problem remains stupendous. It is necessary, therefore, to have a hard look at the ongoing policies, processes, plans and programmes and evolve alternative approaches for housing delivery. Describing the growth and rehabilitation of slums in Delhi, it offers an elaborate discussion on community-based rehousing, Integrated Housing and Slum Development Programme security of land tenure, public housing transformation, and role of private sector in social housing. It also deals with infrastructure development, regularization of unauthorized colonies, emergency shelter housing development and design, systems-based housing production, and cost reduction in construction of shelter. Various policy documents related to slum rehabilitation have been annexed in a CD as well.
