DDA to redevelop six more slums as per public-private partnership model
After Kathputli Colony and Kalkaji Extension, Delhi Development Authority (DDA) will be carrying out work on six new in situ slum redevelopment projects across the city based on the public-private partnership model. The six locations are Rohini sectors 18 and 19, Kirti Nagar, Shalimar Bagh, Dilshad Garden and Kusumpur Pahadi (near Vasant Vihar).
Apart from carrying out the surveys, DDA will be roping in consultants to prepare detailed project reports (DPR) of each slum redevelopment project.
The land-owning agency will be engaging technical consultants-cum-transaction advisors for not only the preparation of DPRs, but also initial feasibility reports and the bid documents. The projects would be carried out on design, build, finance, operate and transfer basis.
The consultant will first conduct a feasibility study for determining the technical feasibility and financial viability following which the projects would be awarded to a private entity selected through a competitive bidding process.
