DRP rejects favouritism claims, cites delay tactics in Dharavi Project

The Dharavi Redevelopment Project (DRP), led by the Adani Group, dismissed allegations of favouritism in the matter. In a statement, DRP, which also counts the Maharashtra government as a stakeholder, stated that "vested interests" were trying to hinder or postpone the project, which holds a revenue potential of Rs 200 billion.

The Opposition Congress claimed that the BJP government was 'benefitting' the Adani Group by easing norms for the Dharavi redevelopment project in Mumbai. Jairam Ramesh, its general secretary, accused the Maharashtra Urban Development Department, which had initially expressed reservations about relaxing the rules, of being "compelled to issue a notification that removes the provision of indexation in Dharavi's real estate Transferable Development Rights (TDR) and makes it mandatory for all Mumbai builders to purchase the first 40 per cent of their TDRs from Adani."

The DRP's statement referred to the efforts to "manufacture a controversy" around TDR generation as "unfortunate." It asserted that the generation of TDR within the Dharavi Notified Area (DNA) had been allowed since the Government Resolution (GR) of 2018, modified in the GR of 2022. The statement reminded that both developments occurred before the issuance of the tender for the redevelopment in 2022.
