- What is all about TDR policy?
I found the news interesting but have struck on a point.
Can anyone explain what TDR is except that it is an acronym that stands for “Transfer of Development Rights”?
- TDR calls for revival in Infrastructure
That's right. :)
TDR stands for “Transfer of Development Rights”. These are a few facts on TDR which I would like to share with you all.
TDR is the exchange of development rights from areas of low population needs, such as farmland, to areas catering to high population needs, such as downtown areas. These transfers play a major role allowing for the conservation of open spaces and historic landmarks, while contributing to the growth of urban areas as well.
Of course, there is a link between slum TDR & 1995 Cut-Off Date, as mentioned in the TDR Policy; as TDR generated through slum rehab schemes can be used in 3 prohibited corridors. The scheme however, envisages free housing for slum dwellers who have come here before Jan 1, 1995.
The HC has also at the same time called for improvement in the infrastructure, as it fears that rash of unplanned construction in the suburbs can put an immense strain on already inadequate infrastructure, compromising the quality of life.CommentQuote0Flag
