Once a thriving market place, Bhendi Bazaar is now in a deplorable state. The existing infrastructure is inadequate. Most structures in the area are dilapidated and the living conditions are challenging. This not only affects the physical and mental well-being of residents, it also restricts commercial growth.
Modernisation of Bhendi Bazaar will offer occupants a better living and working life while preserving the religious, cultural and social spirit that has defined this locality for decades.
The project falls under Maharashtra State Government Regulation of DCR 33(9).
It is a regulatory framework created to streamline urban renewal (redevelopment) of old and dilapidated buildings in Mumbai and suburban places through cluster development.
The regulatory framework requires that a whole area, including all its buildings and necessary civic infrastructure be developed as one single project.
Commercial and residential tenants with legitimate tenements in the buildings/shops falling in the designated 16.5 acres project area are eligible.
The rehabilitation process will be completed and families will be resettled in 4-5 years, after receiving the final approvals from the government.
Almost 125 commercial tenants and 600 families have been rehabilitated in the first 2 towers known as "Al-Sa'adah". Otherwise, over 80% families and businesses have been shifted to safe accommodation and the old dilapidated buildings are being demolished gradually to soon make way for the new infrastructure as well as the homes and shops.
At the core of this project, is the ‘People’. It is a visionary project by our revered father Dr. Syedna Mohammed BurhanuddinRA and now his son & successor, Dr. Syedna Mufaddal SaifuddinTUS. We therefore need all stakeholders to work in unison in order to realise this vision. At no stage do we intend to displace people. However, building an entire new locality of this scale requires a certain timeframe and we need your support to allow us that time. We have already taken complete responsibility and made necessary arrangements so that the commercial and residential tenants are not inconvenienced during this transition phase.
