Govt to compile urban private database


Inaugurating a seminar organised to brief officers of urban development and municipal administration departments on the modalities of the survey scheme, Urban Development Minister Suresh Kumar said the data base will go a long way on policy-making and project design to make the Karnataka a slum free state.

Karnataka will be the first State to implement such a project being undertaken under the centrally assisted Urban Statistics for HR and Assessments (USHA)  scheme.
According to an estimate prepared by the Urban Development department, the state had more than 6.17 lakh families living in slums. The total population living in slum pockets in urban areas is more than 30 lakh.

The survey will also enable the government to integrate support from various programmes including Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission, Basic Services to the Urban Poor (BSUP) and Integrated Housing & Slum Development Programme (IHSDP).
