A week-long signature campaign, demanding plots for cheap housing scheme, better living condition for the underprivileged, is being conducted next to CIDCO office till December 30. The organization running the campaign, Disha Parivartan Foundation, received tremendous support & response from residents.
The other aspects highlighted by the organization are rental housing scheme in every node, legalization of slums built after 2000 and subsidized housing scheme for the police personnel. Disha Parivartan Foundation conducted a week-long signature campaign for various demands from CIDCO.
After conducting the campaign, Disha Parivartan Foundation will submit it to CIDCO with their various demands. Their demands include economical housing needy, rental housing, protective home for juvenile and women victim, rehabilitation of hutments and Garjepoti (need-based construction) among others.

“Several education health institutions are overcharging people while they have been given plots on no profit and no loss conditions,” said Dinesh Gupta, President of Disha Parivartan Foundation
Hemant Sharma the secretary of the Disha Parivartan Foundation said that “We will mention eight demands during the signature campaign.”
The eight demands are common citizens should be entitled to economical houses, education and health care services, implementation of rental housing in entire city. Also, night shelters be made available for people who do not have a house, build beggars homes to curb child begging, among others.
“After submitting the documents of signature campaign, we will submit at Cidco. We will for two to three months and if there is no action, we will intensify our protest against Cidco,” said Gupta, adding that they will also demand audit of social service plots given to educational institutions and hospitals.
