Swatantrapalya – Upgradation of Civic Infrastructure

As of 2014, the Karnataka Slum Development Board (KSDB) recognises 597 slums within Bengaluru, of which 387 have been notified under the Karnataka Slum Areas (Improvement and Clearance) Act 1973. Accordingly, a number of them have been selected for schemes for improvement, upgrading or resettlement.


Swatantra Palya is one such slum lying in the heart of the Bengaluru. As per the Smart City Plan, it falls within the core area identified for improvement, including physical and social infrastructure. Swatantra Palya is located in Gandhinagar (ward 95), near Dr. BR Ambedkar College of Law, within close proximity of Majestic, Malleshwaram, Rajajinagar & Srirampura.


Swatantra Palya was classified as a ‘non notified’ slum under the Slum Free City Plan by the BBMP for the Rajiv Awas Yojana (RAY). However, more recently, it has been declared under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana scheme (PMAY) and identified for redevelopment. Due to convergence with the PMAY, Swatantra Palya has since been incorporated into Bengaluru’s Smart City plan.
