TDR to be used for making State slum-free: Minister

Staff Reporter

Bangalore: The State Government is contemplating using Transferrable Development Rights (TDR) as a tool to make Karnataka slum-free.

Minister for Housing, BWSSB and IT, BT Katta Subramanya Naidu announced this at a programme organised by BDA on Wednesday to distribute site allotment letters to people whose land was acquired for layout formation. “We plan to rehabilitate slum-dwellers and upgrade the slums into housing colonies (both on Government and private land) by either using TDR or partnering with the landlords,” the Minister said.

“The idea is to provide the landlords with TDR to part with their land or to partner them in the housing project. The issue is being discussed at secretariat level and soon the Cabinet will take a decision in favour of slum dwellers,” he said.

“This will also help us utilise funds that are allocated to the State by the Centre through Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission,” he said.

Mr. Naidu explained that multi-storeyed housing complexes would be built in the slums.

“The sharing formula with the landlords will be decided shortly,” he said.
