The Slum Rehabilitation Authority (SRA) was established in Mumbai in 1995 under the Maharashtra Slum Act. The Hon’ble Chief Minister of Maharashtra is the Chair Person of SRA and a super time scale IAS Officer is appointed as full time CEO of SRA. The main purpose of SRA is to innovatively use land as a resource and allow incentive FSI in the form of tenements for sale in the open market for cross subsidization of the Slum Rehabilitation tenements which are to be provided free of cost to the slum dwellers. For this, SRA serves as a Planning Authority for Greater Mumbai. SRA as its major function does following operations regarding slum rehabilitation –
• Planning and implementation;
• eligibility certification;
• eviction of non-participants;
• registration of Co-op Housing Societies; and
• Community development.
In all this, SRA acts as a “single window clearance” for slum rehabilitation schemes.
