The uniqueness of DDP is that it is self-funded; a group of builders and developers will build free of cost houses for all the hutment dwellers of Dharavi on the very land on which their huts are standing today.Dharavi has been divided into 10 sectors and sectors will be developed by different developers.Once the project is completed, say, in seven years, Dharavi aspires to become a world-class township within Mumbai city. It will have 70,000 to 75,000 residential-commercial units with ultra-modern amenities in hygienic conditions.
