The Dharavi Redevelopment Project Pvt Ltd (DRPPL), backed by the Adani Group, will initiate a data collection survey from informal tenement residents in Dharavi starting March 18. DRPPL stands as a joint venture between the Adani Group and the Government of Maharashtra.

This data will serve the state government in establishing criteria for determining eligibility for rehabilitation within the proposed redevelopment plan, as per a report by PTI. The company had earlier announced that the eligible residents of the Dharavi slum clusters will get new 350 sq feet flats

The DRPPL has enlisted urban planners and designers to reconstruct the Dharavi slum settlement, occupying 259 hectares in the heart of Mumbai. The partnership between the Adani Group and the Maharashtra government will also establish a digital library for one of the world's most extensive informal settlements, as per reports.

The group had secured the Rs 23,000 crore Dharavi Redevelopment Project in November 2022, winning the bid with Rs 5,069 crore to revamp Asia’s largest slum area sprawling over 600 acres in Mumbai, India's commercial hub.

DRPPL stated that the data will be collected using a locally developed application, assigning a unique number to each informal tenement. Meanwhile, the representatives of the project encouraged all residents to back the initiative, stating that their support would facilitate the execution of the rehabilitation process. According to the announcement, commencing on March 18 with Kamla Raman Nagar, the survey will gather information from numerous informal tenement residents.
