Gopal Chinayya Shetty, MP from the North Mumbai, has brought up the issue of the people residing in the slum areas and how they should be eligible for a house under the government scheme Slum Rehabilitation Authority (SRA).

The financial capital of India, Mumbai, is a city filled with multi-storey buildings. But on the other hand, there is also an abundance of slum clusters and small houses. A person residing in the slums has no big property other than the house. If his barely constructed house is taken away from him, he would have nowhere to go. Observing this, Gopal Shetty, voiced his opinions regarding the same.

The North Mumbai MP has repeatedly conveyed this to the state government and the central government through correspondence. On Wednesday, July 22, MP Gopal Shetty met the Minister of Home Affairs and discussed this subject in detail. The main theme of discussion now happens to be that if a less fortunate person has got a house and had it been constructed before 2000 as per rules, then he should get his share of the house under the government scheme SRA.

Earlier, on April 9, MP Gopal Shetty wrote a detailed letter in this context to the Government of India, Ministry of Housing and Urban Development, Minister Hardeep Singh Puri. In this paper, MP Gopal Shetty, while also mentioning the earlier amendment related to the slum reconstruction, begged the Ministry for the first mid-scale construction should be included. Similarly, the Maharashtra Government gave a letter of reference to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on May 2.
