Maharashtra government on Wednesday decided to extend the cut-off year to regularise 3.5 lakh unauthorised slums in the city to 2017 from 2011. According to senior government officials, the proposal for this was already approved by the cabinet last Sunday. "The proposal will now be tabled and approved at the ongoing state Assembly session in Nagpur. This move of regularising 3.5 lakh slums will benefit a total 18 lakh slums dwellers," says BJP MLA Ashish Shelar. Meanwhile, state minister for Housing Ravindra Waikar feels BJP is in hurry to take the credit for the move. "We are not happy with BJP's decision to leak this proposal to the media," he said. "We have been working on it jointly for a long time. We are still preparing rules and regulations, and we have to also see that this move does not encourage people to create new slums.
