Integrated Housing and Slum Development Programme aims at combining the existing schemes of VAMBAY and NSDP under the new IHSDP Scheme for having an integrated approach in ameliorating the conditions of the urban slum dwellers who do not possess adequate shelter and reside in dilapidated conditions.
The scheme is applicable to all cities and towns as per 2001 Census except cities/towns covered under Jawahar Lal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM). The scheme seeks to enhance public and private investments in housing and infrastructural development in urban areas.
The basic objective of the scheme is to strive for holistic slum development with a healthy and enabling urban environment by providing adequate shelter and basic infrastructure facilities to the slum dwellers of the identified urban areas.
The scheme will apply to all cities/towns, excepting cities/towns covered under JNNURM. The target group under the scheme is slum dwellers from all sections of the community through a cluster approach.
