Mumbai #ToxicHell residents assured: Solution to resettle them would be "verified" in 10 days

A committee, constituted by the Maharashtra Urban Development department on the order of Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to find a solution to resettle residents of Mumbai’s “toxic hell”, Mahul, has said that it would take 10 days to “verify” information it received from the civil rights organization, Ghar Bachao Ghar Banao Andolan (GBGBA), on providing alternative housing.
The decision came after GBGBA representatives submitted a list of tenements which constructed by different housing agencies and where Mahul residents could be shifted. The committee head Ajoy Mehta, municipal commissioner, directed the agencies like the Slum Rehabilitation Authority (SRA) and the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA), to verify the information and file a report in 10 days.
GBGBA said in a statement, a large number of tenements which are constructed in advance for Project Affected Persons are lying vacant with different housing agencies, demanding, these houses to be allowed to the residents of Mahul who are facing ife threats due to toxic environment in that area.
A total of 5,500 houses are needed for a complete solution of the problem, but the Mumbai authorities have taken the decision to allot 300 houses to Mahul resident so far. The dharna by Mahul residents at Vidya Vihar demanding safer housing as per the High Court's order entered the 74th day on Wednesday.
