Corporators allege corruption in the Slum Rehabilitation Scheme

"Slum Rehabilitation Scheme (SRA) is working in the interest of some developers and not the slum dwellers," Shiv Sena leader Shyam Deshpande
Elected members on Tuesday made serious allegations of corruption in the Slum Rehabilitation Scheme (SRA) within the Pune municipal limits.

They said the scheme is being implemented on plots, where there is no slum.

Municipal commissioner Mahesh Zagade promised the general body that he would personally inquire into the scheme. Special attention would be paid to cases, where elected members have made the allegations.

Zagade said the state government has started the scheme for providing better homes to the poor under the private public partnership (PPP) model. Around 42% population in the city is living in the slums and will get the benefit.

Shiv Sena leader Shyam Deshpande said the administration has granted the nine Floor Space Index (FSI) for a scheme in the city. He said the SRA is working in the interest of some developers and not the slum dwellers.
