Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan has proposed separate norms for slum rehab scheme in the state in general and for Mumbai and surrounding areas in particular.
Taking stock of the work done since he took over, Chavan said at a function to hand over tenements to more than 300 beneficiaries in Dombivli on Tuesday that his government was making every effort to make the state free of slums.
He said the conditions in Maharashtra and other states differed and hence the Centre should have different norms for the state when it comes to planning such programmes.
CM said the cost of land and construction was different in Mumbai.
Unlike in regular lands rehabilitation of slums on government lands was a different issue and needed to be dealt with separately, he noted.
In other countries, one order was sufficient to remove slums and people quietly cleared land, which was not the case in our country, he said.
Here, we get flooded with memoranda, complaints, representations, etc, when we take action.
Hence, the situation in our country differed from other countries, he said.
