We fully agree with the findings and views of the Authors of the story.
I work in CMDA and part of Project Managment Group under TNUDP, that covered 10 towns in Tamilnadu including Chennai where sites and services and slum improvement projects were implemented.
Arukambakkam probably most researchers and Bank people cited. Thre are many other sites and services scheme, examples of dynamic and diverse community, compact and mixed developmet, one of the best example of affordable housing thro cross subsidy. More than a lakh plots have been added to the housing stock through these schemes. The percentage of people living in slum is comparitively loe in Chennai when compared to similar cities because of these schemes. It is highly unfortunate that thsee schemes are not replicated or continued.
once again thanks to the Authors
