Integrated Housing and Slum Development Programme(IHSDP)
Mission Statement
Reforms driven, fast track, planned development of identified cities with focus on efficiency in urban infrastructure/services delivery mechanism, community participation and accountability of Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) towards citizens.
Mission Strategy
Integrated Housing and Slum Development Programme (IHSDP) is a Centrally Sponsored programme aiming at the holistic development of Slums in Urban areas. The programme was formulated by Central Government by combining two erstwhile schemes viz. ValmikiAmbedkarAvas Yojana (VAMBAY) and National Slum Development Programme(NSDP). The implementation of the IHSDP will be beneficial to provide Housing and basic facilities to the slum dwellers in the Urban areas of the State. IHSDP can be implemented in 54 urban Local Bodies of the State. Thiruvananthapuram, Kochi Corporations and Thrippunithura and Kalamassery Municipalities are exempted from IHSDP as these cities are covered under Basic Services to the Urban Poor (BSUP) programme. The financing pattern is in the ratio of 80:20 by Central and State Governments. Beneficiary share (12% for General and 10% for SC/ST) is stipulated for projects for individual beneficiaries like housing. Out of 20% State share the balance fund after deducting beneficiary share will be borne equally by the ULB and State (Maximum state share is 10% of the total Project Cost). GOI assistance is project based and Urban Local bodies have to prepare and submit Detailed project Report (DPR) for availing assistance under the programme. Projects of 45 ULBs have already got approval of the Central Sanctioning committee constituted by Govt. of India for sanctioning of projects. The total project cost of the sanctioned projects amounts to Rs.273.32 crores and the central share is Rs.201.60 crores.
