Svanirbhar Kumbharwada

Svanirbhar Kumbharwada is a model which, rather than applying blanket policy, works sensitively for the upliftment of the potter's community living in Mumbai for ages. The model retains the socio-cultural diversity and morphology attained after years of community growth.  The tangible aspects it takes care of are fulfilling the basic requirements of a citizen to attain a proper size of units with light and ventilation, open spaces for the community, and providing infrastructure and services, along with designing a model for upward mobility, women's upliftment and awareness regarding health and sanitation.
