Welfare project for slum dwellers started in Gurugram

Chandigarh, February 18

Haryana State Legal Services Authority (HSLSA) Executive Chairman and Punjab and Haryana High Court Judge Justice Rajan Gupta has launched a project for the welfare and betterment of slum dwellers in Gurugram.

The project's launch assumes significance as Gurugram, as per 2011 Census, has the second highest population of slum dwellers in Haryana after Faridabad.

The project is expected to ensure all possible assistance to include them in the mainstream of society and also to look at the concerns associated with slum dwellers, including basic facilities such as health, education and food.
