A Citywide Slum Upgrading Plan for Bhubaneswar (CSUB) was developed under the Rajiv Avas Yojna (RAY), as part of the USAID assisted FIRE(D) (Financial Institutions Reform and Expansion – Debt) project. The CSUB was based on a detailed mapping of the city’s slums, a technical assessment of service gaps in each settlement, and a slum tenability assessment using a set of health and life risk parameters to determine viability for in-situ upgrading/redevelopment. The CSUB proposed a citywide, inclusive, comprehensive and integrational development approach. A financial demand assessment and a resource mobilization plan was developed to help generate resources for the Plan’s implementation.
The in-situ upgrading approach was also piloted in 2 Bhubaneswar slum settlements who were provided taps and toilets at home. Families were assisted with micro finance to add taps and toilets in their homes. CURE also prepared a Detailed Project Report (DPR) for the In-situ development of Rangamatia area in Bhubaneswar – the first project approved under RAY for implementation.
