Housing for Urban Poor
DSIIDC aims at the balanced growth of the nation capital and has taken several measures so as to benefit the economically weaker groups. It is one the agencies of Delhi Government that builds houses for the urban poor. 13,820 houses have been completed till date. The flats allotted by DSIIDC are provided with essential services like electricity, water and sewage disposal, besides other infrastructural facilities required to make them habitable.
3164 cost effective houses have been successfully constructed by DSIIDC for Industrial workers at Bawana, 480 have been constructed at Narela and 1412 houses are in progress. With the support of Central Government under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JnNURM), about 9,660 houses have been constructed, while the remaining 4,144 houses are fast nearing completion. There are other schemes on the anvil under JnNRUM for construction of 18,760 houses at Pooth khurd, 3600 at Kanjhawala, and 8420 houses at Tikri Kalan, Delhi. More sites are being identified and acquired for the construction of more such houses under JnNRUM. The project will be implemented using eco-friendly materials and conservation of natural resources will get priority. Fly-ash products will be used in order to make the technology cost efficient.
The houses will also be earthquake–resistant and environmentally–compatible.
DSIIDC is using two different low cost construction technologies for construction of houses. The salient features of the technologies are:-
(a) Monolithic RCC Construction
- 230mm Brick walls replaced by 100mm thick RCC walls.
- Concreting is done in one go for the entire house up to one floor using specially designed formwork.
- Formwork is easy to erect also known as Mywon technology.
- Technology allows faster construction and save in maintenance cost.
- Best suited for in situ development resulting in saving of construction time, finishing cost and maintenance cost.
- Carpet area is more as compared to conventional technology.
- Design of RCC monolithic structure is based on IS: 456.
(b) Precast RCC planks and joist Roofing systems
- Use of load bearing high strength machine moulded bricks of modular size having less thickness resulting in saving of finishing cost and maintenance cost.
- Precast joist and planks used in roofing resulting in elimination of shuttering.
- Reduction in cost and execution time.
- High strength precast ferro cement elements used in staircase, kitchen shelve & sunshade.
- Technology approved by CBRI & BIS.
- Technology has been standardized by BIS code: IS: 13990 & IS: 13994.
