Dharavi Redevelopment Project Private Limited on 18 November said that the allegations made against the company are baseless and malicious.
The company said that the allegations of amendments and ‘tweaking’ to suit selected bidders do not do justice to the regulatory transparency of the process. Alleging favouritism of any kind is a mischievous ploy to muddy the waters and divert attention from the company’s goal of transformational urban management.
The company said, “We believe this is being done at the deliberate behest of certain vested interests who hope to derail or, at least delay, the long-cherished dreams of Dharavi’s people for a better future.”
On 17 November, the Congress party accused the Bharatiya Janata Party of relaxing norms for the Dharavi Redevelopment Project (DRP) in Mumbai to benefit the Adani Group.
The company added, “In the present, all that the government is doing is currently notifying this as a due process. In fact, the GR issued before the onset of the 2018 tendering process had a provision for the sale of TDR generated from the DRP across Mumbai.”
