State Government Grants Legal Status to Mumbai Slum Dwellers: A Milestone for the City

Mumbai, 25th May 2023: In a significant decision, the state government has announced the legalization of all slum dwellers in Mumbai from January 1, 2001, to January 1, 2011. This move will benefit millions of people living in these makeshift settlements. The government has decided to regularize the slums by providing legal status to the residents at a nominal fee of only 2.5 lakhs (two hundred and fifty thousand) rupees.

This decision is expected to have a positive impact on the lives of countless individuals who have been residing in these slum areas for over a decade. With their dwellings now recognized as legitimate, slum dwellers will have access to various essential services and government schemes, improving their overall living conditions.
