Shelter Security in Urban India: Pathways, Barriers and Outcomes

Darshini Mahadevia (Editor)

There is either glamourizing of informal sector or a desire to rapidly formalize it, the latter leading to exclusions and disruptions in people’s life. But, the residents of these informal settlements desire change, but at a pace and way suitable to them. This book is a collection of articles on shelter security in urban India based on the research work undertaken at the Centre for Urban Equity (CUE), CEPT University over the last few years. The articles are on formation of informal settlements and living conditions in them, rental housing in the informal sector, learning from interventions to change living conditions in the slums and other informal settlements and efficacy of the public housing programmes, mainly under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission.
