Major Revamp Planned for Mumbai’s Iconic Kamathipura; Landowners to Receive New Housing Units

On Tuesday, July 9, the Maharashtra government announced a compensation plan for landowners in Mumbai’s Kamathipura area. This initiative is part of the broader reconstruction effort for deteriorated non-cess and cess buildings.

The decision was made by a high-level committee headed by the Housing Department Secretary. Under the plan, landowners with parcels ranging from 50 to 200 square feet will receive up to four 500 square foot housing units. For land parcels larger than 200 square meters, an additional 500 square feet of housing will be provided for every 50 square meters.

The Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) has been appointed as the Special Planning Authority for the Kamathipura rehabilitation project and will serve as the nodal agency. To date, MHADA has renovated eleven buildings. Out of the 943 buildings in the area, 180 were in such poor condition that they had to be demolished, with residents relocated to temporary camps.
