Welcome to DUSIB
Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board functions under the control of Govt. of NCT of Delhi and is primarily functioning under the purview of the DUSIB Act, 2010. This act empowers the DUSIB to notify certain areas as Slums, where with the passage of time, the buildings have become dilapidated and the basic civic services are missing.
Apart from this, DUSIB has been also assigned the role of looking after the Jhuggie Jhompri Squatter Settlements/Clusters by way of provision of civic amenities and their resettlement too.
The Slum & JJ Department was not set up under any statute, but as part of the MCD in 1962. The department was entrusted with the work of operating the provisions of Slum Areas (Improvement & Clearance) Act,1956.
