Current standards of sanitation are low, with just one toilet per 1, people, and the lack of open space means that children play in cemeteries and on the railway tracks. Following extensive research, site visits and by talking to the community, the design team developed a comprehensive plan to improve the quality of life for all living there. The strategy meets the basic need for proper sanitation and deals effectively with the problem of flooding, and includes provision for new community facilities, schools, hospitals and parks. Historically, there has been a tendency to build low-rise and occupy most of the available land, thus the streets are defined as the space not occupied by houses, often reduced to the absolute minimum width possible for access. The proposal supplements the dense, detailed sections of the grid with wider access roads — the previously impermeable city-within-a-city will be opened up with new public transport links and clear pedestrian routes.

The Dharavi Slum Redevelopment Project includes using acres to rehabilitate residents and build commercial units, acres for a community garden and the remaining acres will be for sale and commercial complexes.

Residents rely on the micro-enterprises in the slum, some of which take part in homes and outdoor spaces being used for places of work and social interaction.
