An initiative of 'urban renewal by citizens' carried out by Greha and funded by Delhi Kalyan Samiti

The research has revealed that the development methodology should have four main drivers: community action, habitat design, recording the process of work, and raising of resources, both human and financial.

The present study has identified three main components for effective planning and development action. These are: improving physical infrastructure by making a decentralized, in situ, self-sustaining sewerage and drainage provision; by ensuring safety in mobility; evaluating the community’s requirement of social infrastructure and making provision for additional community facilities; making an assessment of the energy requirements and identifying sustainability criteria for the settlement.
