The Maharashtra government established the Slum Rehabilitation Authority (SRA) in December 1995 to facilitate the redevelopment of slums across Mumbai. While the original beneficiary of an SRA project can sell the property, there are multiple rules applicable.
What is an SRA flat?
Slums are a common part of Mumbai’s landscape. “Around 60 percent of the population in the city is located in slums”,
To enhance slum dwellers’ standard of living, the Maharashtra government passed the Maharashtra Slum Areas (Improvement, Clearance, and Redevelopment) Act, 1971. Under the act, slum improvement works were detailed.
As per the SRA rules, pre -2011 slums are eligible for rehabilitation.
Once a slum pocket is notified, slum-dwellers form cooperative societies. Developers then approach the society to redevelop the slum.
Developers need consent of at least 50% of the slum-dwellers to start the redevelopment and rehabilitation process.
SRA cross-checks the credentials of the slum-dwellers to make sure only those actually living in a designated slum are listed.
The developer moves slum-dwellers to transit camps or gives them rent until the slum is redeveloped.
The developer constructs new buildings and all eligible slum-dwellers get free homes.
The additional space on the plot is used to construct other buildings with free-sale components, to subsidise the rehabilitation of slum-dwellers.
Once the beneficiaries are allotted flats, they cannot sell them during the 10-year lock-in period.
After the lock-in period, the state government is entitled to an amount equivalent to stamp duty or Rs 1 lakh, whichever is higher.
