Jaaga Mission

The Government of Odisha recently enacted a landmark legislation, The Odisha Land Rights to Slum Dwellers Act, 2017 aimed at empowering slum dwellers in the state with security of land tenure and accessibility to a liveable habitat. It aims to assign land rights to eligible slum dwellers for redevelopment, rehabilitation and up-gradation of slums in the Notified Area Councils (NAC) and Municipalities. The Odisha Land Rights to Slum Dwellers Act is a landmark legislation, the first such Act being implemented in the country. The project aims to develop a pioneering example of a welfare act aiming to empower the BoP at this significant scale. The Odisha Liveable Habitat Mission (OLHM) , also called JAAGA is a mission that builds upon the gains of this land mark decision and convert slums into vibrant living spaces that are integrated into the city and have parity with the living conditions in other parts. JAAGA is a mission that will work in coordination with NULM, NUHM to bring in the element of improvement of physical habitats in slum settlements. The OLHM has five components a) land rights b) housing c) basic services d) social infrastructure and e) enhancement of economic infrastructure
