The Central Government gave its nod for constructing 4,136 housing units, with carpet of 279sqft per unit.
Mumbai: The much-publicised Basic Services to Urban Poor (BSUP) project — a free housing scheme for slum-dwellers may just be an illusion, as many slum dwellers in Kashimira prefer to give their flats out on rent. To enhance the living standards of the urban poor, the civic administration had identified two-slum clusters — Janta Nagar and Kranti Nagar in Kashimira for implementing the housing project.

In a startling revelation, around 128 slum dwellers are under the scanner for renting out homes to earn extra bucks. The Central Government gave its nod for constructing 4,136 housing units, with carpet of 279sqft per unit.
