1                  Housing and Urban Poor

 

1.1                                    Introduction

Shimla being capital and administrative center and major educational and tourist destination is the fastest growing hill town. There is increasing need and demand of land for housing in Shimla due to migration of both unskilled and skilled workforce. Land in Shimla for habitation purpose is a scarce resource due to topographical constraints. The land availability, affordable housing and services standards have not been able to keep pace with the influx. Moreover, severe cold climate of Shimla during winter threatens the survival of shelter less people

1.3                                    Land and Housing Provision in Shimla

With work centers and facilities concentrated along the Mall, and extremely limited vehicular accessibility, population tried to cluster around as close as possible to Mall. So the southern slope along the Mall being most favorable from climatic conditions became highly densified. Plot coverage in these areas increased to extent of 100%. More storeys were added. Houses along road levels got commercialized. All this led to unhealthy and unhygienic conditions. 

The ward-wise analysis of land availability per person carried out by HUDCO in 1999 reflects the scarcity of land in areas around the CBD, with gross residential densities are as high as 800 pph where as town level gross residential density is 102 pph.

With growing need of land for housing, areas down the Cart Road, Chhota Shimla, Sanjauli started developing. Northern slopes of Mall, which are unsuitable for residential development, also started developing due to closeness to city center. With scarcity of land and high land values in central Shimla, areas like Tutu, Sanjauli, Dhalli, Kasumpti, Bharari started developing. Due to topographical constraints fragmented development took place.

The main housing areas in Shimla are the core city, part of Kaithu, Shankli, Longwood, Chhota Shimla, Jakhoo, Kasumpti, Sanjauli, Summer Hill, Boileauganj and Tutikandi. The total number of housing units is about 0.45 lakhs. In Shimla Planning Area, the housing stock is increasing by decadal growth rate of 27.75%.

Land available for development in Shimla is mainly private land. As the land supply from other sectors is very slow, the supply of land for housing from private landowners forms major share i.e more than 76%.  The housing system through private supply does not have any provision of EWS and LIG housing, and lack facilities like open spaces, school and even adequate access in order to maximize the selling area. This has resulted in unplanned and haphazard growth. 

EWS housing in Shimla is limited in central Shimla housing area which is structurally in unsafe conditions on rental basis, settlement in areas unsuitable for human habitations like adjoining Nallahs and squatter settlements on public lands.

1.5                                    Policy, Regulatory And Institutional Framework : Housing

To facilitate land supply for residents in the state and regulate housing and land pricing, GoHP promulgated the HP Tenancy and land Reforms Act 1972 barring non residents of HP to buy land in the state and transfer of land to non agriculturists. However, there is no restriction for buying the plot, flat or built house from Housing Board, Development Authorities or Corporation.

HIMUDA is responsible for provision of housing infrastructure and SMC and SADAs are responsible for provision of basic services to urban poor. HIMUDA has so far implemented housing colony projects at Jakhoo Colony, Knolwood, Kelston, Starwberry Hills, New Shimla Phase 1, 2 and 3 and Sanjauli. These projects did not have any provision for EWS housing.

 

1.6                                    Issues and Concerns: Housing

The housing sector in Shimla is constrained by

(1)               Land is scarce due to rigorous topography characterized by steep slopes, elongated hilly spurs, deep valleys, forested areas and zone of perpetual sunshade along northern slopes rendering them unsuitable for habitation purpose

(2)               Sinking and sliding zones where housing development without special measures can endanger the safety of human lives

(3)               Lack of water availability for taking up new housing projects

(4)               Higher development and construction cost due to terrain constraint resulting in unaffordable housing for EWS and LIG

(5)               Construction activities incompatible with surrounding traditional culture and heritage of the city

(6)               No provision of EWS /LIG in the housing projects

(7)               HIMUDA’s role in land management is very limited due to its low financial base and inability to pool land

 


 

1.7                                    Strategy: Housing

The strategy and interventions identified for housing are as follows:

(1)               HIMUDA should act as agency to manage land supply for housing by implementing the Development Plan, taking up development schemes, enforcing zoning regulations, development controls and provision of infrastructure

(2)               Development of housing infrastructure in form of Satellite Township/planned housing colonies in peripheral areas rather than small housing colonies. This would also help in decongestion of town

(3)               Provision of housing for EWS and LIG in all housing projects

1.9                                    Urban Poor

There are 53 slum pockets housing 1972 households/structures with 11874 population identified by GoHP. The wardwise slum population in SMC area is presented in Figure 17.2. The details of locations of  the Urban Poor identified by SMC are shown in Table 17.2.

 

In addition there are about 273 unathorised Dharas on government lands. These slums identified by SMC are not yet notified as required under the H.P. Slum Areas (Improvement and Clearance) Act 1979.  The figure shows that the poor people are scatterred across the wards.

The rugged topography and severe cold climate make the life harder and unattractive for homeless and shelterless and prevent the proliferation of beggars in Shimla. However, Shimla attracts migarnt beggars from plains during summer season.

   Shimla also attracts lots of migrant labours especially from Jammu and Kashmir looking for employment as porters (pitthu’s) for carrying the payloads up and down the hills.

1.10                                Basic services to the Urban Poor

SMC, SADA and GoHP are responsible for provision of basic services to urban poor within their respective jurisidiction. Following basic services are provided to Urban Poor:

Ø      Municipal Water Supply through Standposts

Ø      Sanitation through Public Toilets

Ø      Primary education

Ø      Primary health through Primary Health Centres/Urban Health Centres/Dispensaries

While water and sanitation services are provided by SMC, GoHP is responsible for provision of health and education services.

To assess the current condition of dwelling places of the poor, to understand their problems and requirements in terms of basic services  and to prioritize their needs a separate workshop was organized. Poor people, their representatives, & NGOs dealing with the poor were invited.

Basic amenities prioritized by the poor are water, roads, toilets, electricity, schools, lighting in descending order of priorities.

Various dwelling locations for the poor are not equipped with all the basic services however the gap between the actual and desired services is not high at almost all the locations and almost all have some services already available. The basic services available to the poor are discussed in the following paragraphs.

1.10.1       Water Supply:

The water is distributed in the poor areas via standposts. Though the coverage of the standposts in these poor areas is satisfactory, the frequency & consistency of water distribution and pressure in these standposts depend upon the period of the year and availability of water then.  The dire need of water in Shimla affects the poor very badly and augmentation of bulk water supply and improvement in distribution net1work are required with highest priority.

1.10.2      Sanitation:

Basic sanitation services are available through public toilets. Though these toilets are present in almost all poor locations, the conditions are not good due to poor maintenance or unavailability of water.  It is necessary to improve the condition of these toilets by maintaining it properly and providing adequate water to these. In some areas even public toilets are not available and in these places, toilets should be constructed

1.10.3      Solid Waste Management:

Collection of the solid waste is not available to most of the poor areas. Inadequate bins, lack of accessibility and lack of awareness are constraints for garbage collection from slums.

 

1.10.4      Sewerage:

Most of the SADA areas in Shimla are not covered by proper sewerage network. Moreover the network in the city areas is not connected to the new sewerage links. These two sewerage networks should be connected.

 

1.10.5      Roads

The slums are poorly covered by road network due to topographical constraints.

 

1.10.6      Education

Shimla has 14 Anganwadis and 63 primary schools (including private schools). These schools are scattered at different locations and are also serving the urban poor.

 

1.10.7      Housing:

Housing system in Shimla does not have any provision of EWS or LIG housing. EWS housing is mainly located in areas unsuitable for human habitation due to adjoining nallahs and squatters settlement on forest land and other public lands. As per the definition of the slum in Slum Area Act, large number of old, dilapidated buildings and structures also fall under slums and need to be rehabilitated or reconstructed. It is recommended that a detailed survey be conducted to identify such buildings/structures and notify them as slums

 

1.10.8      Shelters/ Accommodation to the Labours:

SMC operates five labour hostels/shelter homes in Shimla viz Chalet Day School, Chaura Maidan, Phagli, Court Hill and Lakkar Bazar with total capacity of 455 beds for providing night shelters to migrant labours on nominal rental of Rs. 20 per month. These hostels are not adequate enough to accommodate the migrants. Migrants are also using religious places like mosques for night shelters.

 

1.11                                Policy, Regulatory And Institutional Framework: Urban Poor

In order to provide for improvement and clearance of the slum areas and for protection of tenants from such evictions, GoHP enacted The Himachal Pradesh Slum Areas (Improvement and Clearance) Act 1979. As per the Act, the slum area is defined as an area in any respect unfit for human habitation or area by reason of dilapidation, over crowding, faulty arrangements and design of such buildings, narrowness or faulty arrangement of streets, lack of ventilation, light or sanitation facilities or any combination of these factors, detrimental to safety, health or morals.

SMC, Office of Deputy Commissioner, and other departments of GoHP are involved in slum identification, notification and provision of various services and implementation of schemes for urban poor and slums

 

1.12                                Social Impacts of the Projects on Urban Poor

Majority of the projects like water supply, sewerage, solid waste management etc shall have overall positive and direct beneficial impacts on the urban poor as it is expected to improve the basic services and other service deliveries to the urban poor by way of improve availability of water and consequently improvement in their environmental, hygenic and living conditions

The other projects which are related to improving the decongestion, mobility shall indirectly benefit urban poor

Some of the projects and interventions identified as a of City Development Plan may need land acquisition and resettlement and rehabilitation of the project afftected people (PAP) including the urban poor. An indicative list of the projects which may require land acquisition and related R&R are shown in the Table 17.3.

The extent of land acquisition requirement and related R&R can be only ascertained during detailed feasibility and preparation of detailed project reports. The project cost estimated does not include the land acquisition and R&R estimates. These shall be ascertained on project basis and capitalised to the respective project cost.

Being hilly area, Shimla is eligible for land acquistion and R&R cost under JNNURM. The tentative provision of Rs 220 Cr is recommended for the R&R of the PAPs

1.13                                allocation of the investment plan to the Urban Poor

Due to lack of adequate information on the no of urban poor population and the slum wise provision of all basic services and the detailing of the projects in terms of its spatial and population coverage with respect to urban poor, it is difficult to ascertain the allocation of the investment to the urban poor. In absence of such information, the efforts are made to allocate the percentage of total investment in proportion to the urban population in the SPA. Of the total investment about Rs 45 Cr share may be apportioned to the urban poor as presented in Table 17.4

1.16                                Strategy: Urban Poor

There is need to strengthen the urban planning process by integrating urban poor in city planning and development process in participatory manner and evolve citywide strategies to provide alternatives to slum formation. Strategies like making land available to the poor at affordable prices through reservation of land for EWS housing and ensuring the provision of housing, urban infrastructure, and transport services on the fringes of the cities, can provide alternatives that would restrict the formation of new slums. The strategy and interventions identified for urban poor is as follows:

(1)               Comprehensive survey for identification of slums, their assessment with respect to tenable/untenable and provision of basic services, and notifications of areas/buildings as slum under the H.P Slum Areas (Improvement and Clearance) Act 1979. This database may be created using GIS based tools. This would include preparation of list of slum dwellers, issue of proper identification. The survey should also assess the service level requirement based on citizen’s need

(2)               The Development of Urban Slum R&R Policy addressing affordable housing, security of tenure, assurance of basic amenities, and community participation. The policy should address rehabilitation of slums from untenable areas and in-situ development of slum from tenable areas. The slum relocation and rehabilitation schemes could be structured with private sector participation.  Wherever possible, community organizations should be supported and allowed to play an active role in preparing and executing plans for slum upgradation/redevelopment

(3)               Relocation, resettlement and rehabilitation of urban slums in untenable areas by providing the housing at new location at affordable cost. These houses should be constructed with basic amenities and other basic necessary services should be available in locality.

(4)               In some cases, the land on which the poor people have been staying belongs to Municipal Corporation and it is possible to upgrade the existing houses of the poor, in-situ upgradation should be done. In in-situ upgradation, the old and dilapidated houses should be rehabilitated/reconstructed either at reasonable cost or free depending upon the economic condition and provision of all basic amenities likes water supply, public toilet (in case of constraint of space), sanitation and electricity should be made. Management of community toilets should be with participation from community and NGO. SMC shall undertake reform related to internal earmarking for budget for basic services to the urban poor

(5)               Establishment of night shelters/hostels for migrant laborers and working women, destitute children homes. For the poor labours, existing labour hostels should be upgraded and few new labour hostels should be constructed. New hostels should be constructed for the poor working women and homeless children.
