On November 2, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will dedicate 3,024 freshly built apartments in Kalkaji, Delhi, for the area’s less fortunate residents.

“The flats are built to rehabilitate slum dwellers under ‘In-Situ Slum Rehabilitation’ Project. PM will hand over the keys to eligible beneficiaries at Bhoomiheen Camp,” said Prime Minister’s Office in a press release.

The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) is doing in-situ slum rehabilitation in 376 jhuggi jhopri clusters in accordance with the Prime Minister’s objective to provide housing for everybody, according to the statement. The goal of the rehabilitation project is to give the clusters’ residents a better, healthier living environment complete with the necessary amenities and facilities.

At Kathputli Colony, Jailorwala Bagh, and Kalkaji Extension, DDA has engaged on three similar projects. Three slum clusters—Bhoomiheen Camp, Navjeevan Camp, and Jawahar Camp—located in Kalkaji are undergoing staged in-situ slum rehabilitation as part of the Kalkaji Extension Project.

“Under Phase I, 3024 EWS flats at the nearby vacant commercial centre site have been constructed. The Jhuggi Jhopri site at Bhoomiheen Camp will be vacated by rehabilitating eligible households of Bhoomiheen camp to the newly constructed EWS flats. Post vacation of Bhoomiheen Camp site, in Phase II, this vacated site will be utilized for rehabilitation of Navjeevan Camp and Jawahar Camp,” PMO added.

3024 apartments that were part of Phase I of the project are now ready for occupancy. These apartments were built for around Rs. 345 crores and come complete with all public utilities, including vitrified floor tiles, ceramic tiles, an Udaipur green marble counter in the kitchen, etc.
