The project aims at resettling over 10,000 households that were previously living in slums along the banks of the river. Slum dwellers living on the riverbed and affected by the project have been relocated and provided with ‘pucca’ housing with secured tenure. This process of providing each claimant a permanent, titled housing in one of the many relocation sites interspersed within the city’s boundaries has been carried out under the supervision of the Gujarat High Court.
The project also aims at integrating the informal activities such as laundering of clothes and informal markets. The Laundry Campus provides state-of-the-art facilities for the washing community that has traditionally used the river banks for washing and drying of clothes. The weekly flea market 'Ravivari' held every Sunday has been relocated to Riverfront Market , a site adjacent to its original location where specially designed vending platforms and designated areas for mobile vendors have been created.
