Slums
 A large % age of
Mumbai’s population live
in slums
 Slums are located both
on public and private
lands
 Lack basic services
 The CDP admits a substantial decline in the quality of life, attributing it to
infrastructure deficits and growing number of people living in slums

Infrastructure deficits
 Limited hours of water supply
 Poor condition of transmission
and distribution system
 Many households without
sanitation
 Slow average travel speed
(proxy for road efficiency) of 6-8
kms/hour
 Drainage capacity limited to
carrying about 50% of the
potential sewage
 Old storm water drainage
network which cannot take high
rain intensity
Little renewal or replacement of city based infrastructure, resulting in infrastructure aged assets
which operate at sub-optimal efficiency
