According to an RTI, BMC has suggested allocating land for the Dharavi Redevelopment Project

According to a Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) response under the Right to Information Act, the BMC has proposed to the Maharashtra State Government’s Urban Development Department that five of the project’s eighteen acres—ten of which are readily available—be allocated for the Dharavi Redevelopment Project immediately. The remaining ten acres will be given over once the project’s ongoing work is finished.

The RTI was filed by social activist and advocate Sagar Devre, who stated that 41.6 acres of land have been allocated for the reclamation of a dumping site and will be turned over to the Dharavi Rehabilitation Project after June 2025. It was previously asserted that no land had been set aside for Mulund’s Dharavi Rehabilitation Project. During the election campaign, leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Kirit Somaiya and Mihir Kotecha, disseminated false information. It is significant to remember that the Dharavi Redevelopment Project master plan, which will specify the location of the rehabilitation, the number of eligible individuals, and the necessary land area, is still waiting, stated Mr. Devre.
