SLUM REDEVELOPMENT OF KATHPUTLY COLONY, DELHI THESIS 2011-12
ROLL NO. - 08-AR-20

INTRODUCTION:

Kathputly colony is one the big slum of west Delhi. This slum develops during 1960-1970s.
The first people of the slum were puppeteers from Rajasthan. So, the colony got their name
from their first residents. Kathputly means wooden puppet. After that traditional artists,
puppeteers, jugglers, folk musicians, dancers, acrobats, magicians etc. were came from other
part of the country settles there. This slum started from 12 shelters to 2200 families. They
attracted towards city for better work and money. They are basically performers who have
their own culture where father used to teach his entire trick to their children so that these
folk arts can be live. They are called in parties, restaurants, marriages, etc. for their
performance. They used to work on street and roads. But by the end of the day they have to
come to their window less home. The conditions of the people are not good. There are lack
of basic amenities. They are still Urban Poor.

OVERVIEW:

Delhi’s first Slum rehabilitation is a government project by which they want to improve the
condition of urban poor. This is first such a project carried by the Delhi government. After all
Delhi has 900 slums and all of them are needed to upgrade by making basic services
available. Also to save their culture because this is our social heritage.

SCOPE OF THE PROJECT:

Kathputly colony has unique character. The development of these urban poor should be
done in this way so that they can have better environment which suits to themselves also
save their culture.

Slum-dwellers stay in shanty structures in unhygienic environment, not by choice but by


compelling circumstances as they were thrown out of the formal housing sector, the latter
being unaffordable and much beyond their income levels. So, we need to develop it in that
manner so that they can flourish and grow.

Design of the whole development should be sustainable. Because this is not only about 2200
families or 13000 people approx. but also things related to these people. Also commercial
area should be developed in this way that they don’t affect from this adjoining building but
also serve the slum people for their betterment. There should be all basic amenities with the
places to fulfill their daily need in an effective and efficient way. My aim to provide the
much awaited and necessary infrastructure which will cater the need of those people, so
that the problem faced by them can be finished. Also there should be some places like park,
shopping, training center and recreation etc. to give them a better life.

AIM:

too. Also use extra F.A.R. to create commercial space which can give work to the slum
dwellers and serve other people of the city.

OBJECTIVE:

 To design for the programs that offer long term solutions to the problem of survival
for a much broader base of creative talent.
 To promote the growth of a vibrant and economically viable artistic community that
has the inherent capacity to create wealth and goodwill for itself and for the nation.
 To construct the whole buildings with the locally available material and low cost
material in order to make energy efficient and sustainable structures.
 To save our social heritage by preserving their culture and to create a comfortable
environment having all basic facilities.
 To educate the people and setup new vocational institutes there.
 To provide employment to the people to make their life better.
 To provide recreational facilities along with the commercial facilities for the people
to interact and a happy living.
 To help the capital city to be one of the good city of the world.

UPLIFTMENT:

Another major concern of this project is to provide the slum people and other people of the
city a better place and uplift the value of the city. Also it will act as the milestone to upgrade
and rehabilitate other slum areas of the city. I believe that the people living in slums are a
core support of the city and must be provided with a meaningful living environment. It will
also help in giving a good platform to the resident who has tremendous talent in different
fields. Slums are generally taken as dirty place and people often neglect. But slums are the
need of other high class colonies and it fulfillment their basic service needs. So, it is necessary
to know the role of that particular slum and its need in society and in economical balance.

SELECTION OF THE PROJECT:

people and create safe environment for the inhabitants specially for ladies. Also design in
such a way to give professional opportunity and save social & cultural heritage.
